UPM Raflatac at Labelexpo India: faster delivery and new product innovations

Under the theme 'Think Label' at this year's Labelexpo India, UPM Raflatac is highlighting the expanding range of advanced label materials which combine performance, eco-friendliness and economy with uncompromising quality. In addition to the newly launched RP 31 Purus adhesive and other solutions for pharmaceuticals labelling, UPM Raflatac is presenting several product innovations for textile, beverage and cosmetics labelling.

RP 31 Purus for pharmaceutical performance

As the Indian pharmaceutical companies are fast expanding their global presence, UPM Raflatac is committed to helping them satisfy the specific needs and the strictest requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. The latest introduction for the Indian market is RP 31 Purus, a new non-migrating, proprietary adhesive, which provides uncompromising adhesion and environmental resistance. RP 31 Purus is suitable for the most demanding pharmaceutical applications, including products with small diameters and curved surfaces. Moreover, it performs equally well on different labelling substrates - from PP, PE and glass to low-density polyethylene which is used especially in squeezable nose or eye drop containers.

Fast delivery from the new terminal in Southern India

UPM Raflatac's brand new slitting and distribution terminal in Bangalore, India has got off to an excellent start since opening in June. The Bangalore terminal supplies film and paper labelstock products to customers in Southern India, a market that is growing at 15-20% a year. "Our customers have been pleased with the faster delivery of a wider range of products for the local market," says Ilkka Ylipoti, Senior Vice President, UPM Raflatac Asia Pacific. The Bangalore terminal complements UPM Raflatac's logistics network in Southeast Asia and South Asia, comprising a labelstock factory in Johor, Malaysia and terminals in Jakarta in Indonesia, Bangkok, Thailand and Mumbai, India.
