UPM Raflatac's New Extra-Matt Label Face Meets Demand for Reliable Barcode Scanning

Saturday, Apr 09, 2016

UPM Raflatac has launched an extra-matt label face in Europe. It meets demand for reliable barcode scanning on durable goods.

PET Extra Matt Silver TC 50 has less than 20% gloss. This minimizes light-scatter and directs more light back to barcode readers, increasing the effective contrast and the consistency of scanning.

Pre-printed information such as tracking and unit information is also protected for the lifetime of the label by a scratch, smudge and chemical resistant topcoat.

PET Extra Matt Silver TC 50 is available with non-solvent adhesives featuring high temperature and chemical resistance. RC15 provides outstanding adhesion on polar surfaces like glass, steel and ABS. RC18 is designed for polar as well as non-polar surfaces such as PE and PP plastics.
