UPM Raflatac’s Ultra-removable Adhesives Leave Clean Surface

Published on 2016-04-13. Author : SpecialChem

UPM Raflatac’s ultra-removable adhesives offer decisive removability where cleanliness really shows and where damage-free surfaces are essential to an item’s value.

The RR522U, RR523U and RR524U adhesives offer varying levels of tack for labelling a wide range of surfaces – from glass and white goods to books and newspapers. Paper and film label face options include Raflacoat Plus PEFC, Vellum TTR, PP White TC 60, Thermal Top P 200 and Thermal Eco 300 PEFC.

Based on microsphere technology, these ultra-removable adhesives consist of minute acrylic adhesive spheres in an adhesive emulsion. This produces microscopically non-continuous adhesive contact with the labelled surface, resulting in low-tack adhesion and a smooth peel-away. The microspheres and emulsion stay anchored to the label.

“UPM Raflatac’s microsphere adhesives bring all the benefits of ultra-removable labelling to logistics, general branding and retail promotion,” describes Jouni Iiskola, Labelling Solutions Manager, UPM Raflatac. “Clean removal assists fast and cost-efficient handling, items look as good as new, and end-users and consumers have total satisfaction.”
