RP48 AT combines the best properties of hotmelt and acrylic adhesives, and is suitable for for chilled food labeling.

UPM Raflatac has expanded its range of adhesives for food labeling with the launch of its RP48 AT (All-Temperature) acrylic adhesive for the European market.

With good adhesion across a wide temperature range as well as good clarity, water resistance, and smooth convertibility, RP48 AT is an attractive alternative to hotmelt adhesives for labeling food packages stored in moist and chilled conditions.

Food packaging that will be labeled and stored in chilled or moist conditions, usually at 10°C or colder, often presents challenges for brand owners and packers. Hotmelt adhesives are typically used to label foods stored in these conditions, but can suffer from limited clarity and convertibility, according to the company.

As introduced, RP48 AT performs well at a wide variety of temperatures, and excels at chilled conditions in particular, ensuring labels on food packaging remain firmly in place and retain their shelf appeal.

Furthermore, it offers good clarity when used with clear film faces and improves the stability and efficiency of the converting and dispensing processes. RP48 AT can be paired with UPM Raflatac’s PP White FTC 60 or PP Clear FTC 50 film face materials.

For food labeling applications, RP48 AT combines the best properties of hotmelt and acrylic adhesives,” says Päivi Knihti, Segment Manager, Films, EMEIA, UPM Raflatac. “The adhesive performs extremely well in moist and chilled conditions, while also offering good performance in converting and dispensing, as well as high clarity for clear film faces.”
