Published on 2014-10-02. Author : SpecialChem

UPM Raflatac announces the launch of a renewed label stock portfolio for print-on-demand applications in the Americas. These high-performance ink-jet and toner-based papers and films offer a variety of business advantages across a range of consumer, outdoor and industrial end-uses.

Toner-based solutions accelerate growth

igital printing has opened up a world of opportunities but has also dramatically increased expectations in terms of quality, speed and cost-effectiveness for both global brand owners and small businesses. UPM Raflatac’s qualified toner-based label stocks are guaranteed to deliver perfect print quality and stable printing behavior on several LED toner and dry toner digital printers. And these print-on-demand solutions are ideal for health and beauty, wine and retail information labeling as well as small office/home office and industrial chemical applications.

New strategies with UV ink-jet printing

An emerging digital printing solution, UV ink-jet printing delivers fast speeds, good results and the ability to print on conventional materials. Designed for machines like the EFI® Jetrion™ family, Durst, Domino and Mark Andy presses, UPM Raflatac’s unique product offering for UV ink-jet printing is ideal for short to medium-sized print runs in prime labeling end-uses, such as home and personal care, as well as targeted marketing campaigns and boutique labeling operations.

Water-resistant ink-jet films safeguard imagery

UPM Raflatac’s new Polyjet Clear and Polyjet Gloss White PP label stocks are the closest options on the market to completely water-resistant* ink-jet films. When printed with water-based dye and pigmented ink-jet inks, these products dry instantly on the press, safeguarding imagery and allowing companies to increase production and productivity. These uniquely-coated films are ideal for challenging end-uses ranging from wine, food, beverage and health and beauty labels to basic bar code production. *Degree of water resistance is highly dependent upon ink choice and environmental conditions.

Exposure-proof performance with BS5609 products

UPM Raflatac now offers a range of high-performance, durable VIP films that conform to sections two and three of the BS5609 standard for pressure sensitive labels applied to dangerous goods transported by sea, which includes requirements for sea immersion, dimensional stability, adhesion, artificial weathering, temperature cycling and color fastness. Additionally, several of these label stocks offer completely static-free performance.

“The products in our renewed print-on-demand line-up are designed for maximum flexibility, so we can help companies enhance their profitability and maximize their brand appeal, says Stacey MacNeil, VIP Business Director, Americas. “From toner-based solutions, to UV ink-jet options, to products for water-based dye and pigmented ink-jet printers – and even films that withstand the challenges of the sea – we truly offer something for everyone.”
