UPM Raflatac widens access to shrink sleeve films

Small order quantities on short lead times, pre-slit for narrow web printers

(UPM Raflatac, Tampere, 20 September 2012) – UPM Raflatac is introducing shrink sleeve materials, pre-slit for narrow web printers and delivered through the Fast Web service. RafShrink PET Pentafilm 45 is the first of these films available quickly from stock and in low minimum order quantities.

“Sleeves are capturing market share across many segments including food, beverage and home and personal care. They are especially effective as a response to brand owners’ rapidly changing promotional needs,” says Katja Kivelä, Business Segment Specialist at UPM Raflatac.

“RafShrink PET Pentafilm 45 is a top-quality material sourced from one of the biggest names in shrink sleeves – Klöckner Pentaplast. Narrow web printers now have the flexibility to fulfil even the smallest shrink sleeve orders on short lead times. Using this much demanded PET material, they can also compete for small tenders with minimal financial outlay.”

UPM Raflatac delivers RafShrink PET Pentafilm 45 ex-stock in as little as 96 hours. Orders start from 3600 m², in 300, 400, 500, 600 and 800 mm roll widths.
