UPM Raflatac develops Forest Film and Fossil-Free wood-based adhesive

Market: Labels, tags
Posted September 17, 2019
UPM Raflatac and UPM Biofuels have joined forces to innovate for a future beyond fossils. As a concrete result of this collaboration, UPM Raflatac brings two wood-based renewable labeling materials into the market: UPM Raflatac Forest Film™ and UPM Raflatac Fossil-Free Adhesive. 

These innovative labeling materials will answer brand owners’ needs to replace traditional fossil-based virgin materials with renewable ones. Their main raw material is UPM BioVerno™ naphtha, an ideal renewable component for replacing fossil based raw materials with sustainably sourced renewable feedstock. 

Forest Film™ is the first wood-based polypropylene film label material on the market. Fossil-Free Adhesive RP48 is a renewable multipurpose solution. Together with other responsibly sourced label materials like the forest positive UPM Raflatac RAFNXT+, this adhesive forms a comprehensive solution making each layer of labeling even more sustainable.

Both Forest Film and Fossil-Free Adhesive are drop-in solutions so they do not require any changes in production processes and can smoothly replace traditional fossil-based options.These products combine the circular economy with renewable bioeconomy – one tonne of fossil raw material can now be replaced with one tonne of renewable raw material.
