Waste into Valuable Resources

RafBio PE is combined with our RP37 adhesive for multi-purpose labelling applications. Furthermore, UPM Raflatac’s RafCycle program offers significant benefits to label printers and end users by turning waste into valuable resources.

Sustainability and Squeezability in Perfect Harmony

  • RafBio PE 85 performs just like standard PE film and is the ideal choice for a sustainable film face material that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions while still keeping products looking their very best.
  • Its excellent flexibility for squeezable packaging and contoured containers makes it perfect for home and personal care applications. 
  • Made from sugarcane ethanol, RafBio PE 85 contains more than 80% renewable plant-based raw material and can be recycled in the same way as fossil-based PE films.
  • RafBio Compostable films are fully biodegradable and can be recycled along with regular household bio waste.
