Etiketter står til søs
UPM Raflatac udvider sit sortiment af selvklæbende etiketprodukter med BS5609-godkendelse og styrker dermed leverancerne af etiketter til maritimt brug (på engelsk)
UPM Raflatac has extended its range of self-adhesive label products that comply with section two of the internationally recognized BS5609 standard for self-adhesive labels for marine use.
Five new product approvals bring the number of UPM Raflatac label products that meet the requirements of the standard to almost 50.
Four of the new products conforming to BS5609 section two - PET White TC 50, PP Solid White TC 60, PP Matt Solid White 60 and Polyprint 100 White - use UPM Raflatac's RC77 adhesive, a strong permanent adhesive designed specifically for industrial chemical drum labeling.
RC77 has improved temperature and chemical resistance, as well as good adhesion on polar and non-polar surfaces to ensure containers remain clearly identifiable throughout their lifetime. For label converters, it enables better runnability and more reliable dispensing. The fifth product, PP White UVI 60 for UV inkjet digital printing, uses UPM Raflatac's RP77 adhesive. RP77 is a high-tack adhesive with good adhesion on polar and non-polar surfaces.
The BS5609 standard contains provisions to ensure that dangerous goods transported by sea should be durably labeled and identified.
Section two details the requirements for pressure sensitive adhesive laminates and rates their performance in terms of dimensional stability, adhesion, artificial weathering, temperature cycling, and color fastness, as well as exposure to marine conditions for three months.
