UPM Raflatac’s PET Gloss White FTC 50 Topcoat Ideal for Food Labels

Published on 2015-12-15. Author : SpecialChem

PET Gloss White FTC 50 fulfills the needs of packaging designers and brand owners seeking legislatively compliant food labels with a premium level of shelf-appeal.

“With the new topcoat, PET Gloss White FTC 50 supports quality print results with lasting resistance to rubbing, scratching and moisture. It’s ideal for labeling chilled, deep freeze and peel-and-reseal products with a loyalty enhancing brand experience,” says Mr. Jay Betton, Labeling Solutions Manager at UPM Raflatac.

“Higher temperature resistance than other films commonly used in the food industry also makes this PET-based label film a perfect match for labeling ‘cook in the bag’ products. Using plastic-identical labels on PET packaging additionally offers more opportunities for recycling.”

Compliance to EU 10/2011 is a legal obligation which minimizes the risk of food contamination from packaging containing plastics. In addition to protecting consumers, compliance helps protect label suppliers and brand owners from the liabilities and reputation damage caused by product recalls.

UPM Raflatac supplies Declarations of Conformity for film-based food labeling solutions. Compliant materials and documentation are essential for label printers competing as suppliers to food packaging contractors and brands.
