UPM Raflatac to showcase its new innovations in Graphics Solutions at FESPA Global Print Expo 2024

In a significant move to address the evolving needs of the graphics industry, UPM Raflatac is pleased to announce the expansion of its Graphics Solutions product range. Designed to meet growing customer demands for high quality, durable and versatile materials, the expansion includes the launch of a range of new, self-adhesive products. The new innovations within the extended product portfolio will be showcased on UPM Raflatac’s stand (5-H49) during FESPA Global Print Expo 2024, taking place from 19th – 22nd March in Amsterdam.

The new solutions being showcased include a range of self-adhesive films and protection laminates specifically engineered with high tack adhesive for large format printing (LFP) applications. Available to customers from April, the new High Tack Polymeric LFP range is tailored for demanding indoor and outdoor LFP applications on polar and non-polar surfaces, offering key benefits for customers including a high initial tack and a clear, non-yellowing adhesive that is resistant to temperature, water, chemicals and UV.

UPM Raflatac is also introducing a new self-adhesive Wall Graphics Paper solution, offering an easily removable and repositionable option for wall decorations which is scheduled for release in May 2024. The new paper product is designed with water-based adhesive, presenting a PVC-free solution ideal for short-term decorations. When compared to solvent adhesives, solvent-free adhesives use far less energy during the manufacturing process and are free from hazardous air pollutants which pose a risk to both human health and the environment.

These brand-new offerings are complemented by the launch of an expanded sheets product offering for screen and UV Offset printing under the established Intercoat brand name, which is available to customers now. With extended service capabilities, this expanded range offers customers potential new business opportunities.

Markku Pietarinen, Global Product Manager, Graphics Solutions comments at UPM Raflatac: “As we unveil our expanded product range at FESPA Global Print Expo 2024, we're not just introducing new products; we're redefining what our customers can expect from both UPM Raflatac Graphics Solutions and the Intercoat brand. Our focus on innovation and customer-centric solutions ensures our newly expanded product range meets the evolving and diverse needs of the market and our growing customer base.”
