22 November 2022


UPM Raflatac has expanded its Direct Thermal (DT) Opticut Linerless labels portfolio customized for various applications in hospitality, retail and weigh scales, transport and warehousing, and industrial food.

‘We widened our OptiCut Linerless portfolio to enable brands to maximize efficiency and find solutions for each unique packaging type. The adhesive properties for each of our seven OptiCut products were designed for various application environments,’ said Brinder Gill, director of paper laminates at UPM Raflatac Americas.

UPM Raflatac designed its expanded DT Linerless range with the specific functions of each end-use in mind. This includes retail and weigh scales, logistics for transport and warehousing, to-go orders for hospitality and cold environments for industrial food.

Examples of the unique adhesive properties of UPM OptiCut DT Linerless products include repositionability and resistance to high heat, moisture and extreme cold.

DT Linerless also enables process enhancements and operational efficiencies including reduction in material costs with the ability to use variable lengths when labeling, reduced roll changes, lower storage and transportation costs due to 50 percent more length per roll and no release liner waste.

UPM Raflatac OptiCut products offer excellent adhesion and repositionability, and helps customers move closer to their sustainability goals.

The carbon footprint of UPM Raflatac Linerless products is certified by the Carbon Trust and the full range is certified CarbonNeutral product (not including use) by Climate Impact Partners in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol.

‘With these designations, our linerless product portfolio not only provides brands with increased efficiency, accuracy, and a reduction in waste, but also a certified carbon savings,’ concluded Gill.
