UPM Raflatac Linerless OptiCut™ is the latest example in UPM Raflatac’s portfolio of benchmark-setting labelling innovations and product development. It prevents paper jamming and provides excellent adhesion with minimal adhesive build-up in a wide variety of applications: from rough surfaces to sub-zero temperatures.
The in-house developed adhesive technology used in OptiCut is available for each of the primary direct thermal linerless end-use environments – from retailing and logistics, to quick service and takeaway restaurants.
OptiCut minimises service time and offers customers a linerless product with maximum uptime of printer applicators, fewer reel changes and a crisp barcode on the package. ‘We have developed OptiCut in collaboration with our partners across the value chain. Our innovative and sustainable solution is the optimal choice when you are looking for clean cutting performance on the printer combined with excellent adhesion on the package,’ said Mauri Suomela, Senior Vice President, Paper Laminates, UPM Raflatac.
Direct Thermal (DT) linerless labelling is an efficient and sustainable alternative to traditional label stock as it brings up to a 40 percent reduction in material usage. Driven by sustainability trends and the need for increased efficiency, linerless has quickly gained ground alongside traditional labelling technologies. Boosted by growing demand in end-uses such as grocery labelling, logistics and quick service restaurants, the DT linerless market has seen approximately 15 percent year-on-year growth in recent years.
