Enhanced labels with PP Embossed overlaminating films

(UPM Raflatac, Tampere, 23 September 2011) – UPM Raflatac has introduced two new textured PP Embossed overlaminating films to give labels a new finish. Laminated over silver and gold films or over white and coloured papers, these Linen and Pearl embossing patterns give a new look and feel to labels and make them stand out even better. Overlaminating films present an opportunity to reinvent a host of existing products and turn them into attention-grabbers. In addition to a quality look and feel, overlaminating can also create an impression of higher print contrast and colour intensity.

UPM Raflatac supplies a range of PP and PET films to enhance almost any paper or filmic label in a wide range of end-uses. In terms of functionality, film overlaminating protects the print from abrasion and extends the lifetime of the label. Particularly with paper labels, overlaminating gives better resistance to water and chemical spills, improves mechanical and thermal stability, and allows labels to be wiped clean. UPM Raflatac’s overlaminating films come in a variety of thicknesses and finishes. The adhesives supplied with these films have excellent clarity, and selected overlaminates are compatible with the no-label look.
