UPM Raflatac upgrades non-migration adhesives for food labelling

In line with the EU 10/2011 regulation, on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, UPM Raflatac has introduced two adhesive upgrades to continue advances in migration safeguards.

The Finland-based self-adhesive labels company’s new RP 36 FG and RP 36 ML adhesives are said to have improved non-migration characteristics to further reduce “even the slightest possibility” of food contamination.

“They are classed as infant and baby safe, and they are approved for direct food contact, including labelling carcasses, as well as indirect food contact,” the company says.

According to UPM Raflatac, laminates of Foodgloss RP 36 FG and Foodgloss RP 36 ML achieve “good results” in a sensory analysis for indirect transition of flavour (Robinson test) according to EN 1230-2.

“Improved UV resistance gives the laminate and converted labels a longer shelf life for efficient and convenient stock management,” the company says.

“RP 36 FG also offers good clarity for optimal product presentation with clear labels.”

Declaration of Confirmity (DoC), as required by the EU 10/2011 regulation, is available on request from UPM Raflatac.
