Label to Label offers the same high standards of print quality and high-speed converting as compared to UPM Raflatac’s standard offering. It features up to 30 percent post-consumer waste (PCW) containing recycled label backing, unbeaten anywhere in the pressure sensitive label industry. This labeling solution is the sustainable circular alternative to the linear economy. With Label to Label products, UPM Raflatac is returning waste back to the label market as a high quality semi-gloss face well-suited to a wide range of end uses.
The label liners are collected via the RafCycle® by UPM Raflatac service and through other industry initiatives. Next, they are de-siliconized and converted to raw PCW, and then UPM Raflatac’s raw materials supplier makes new paper label face stock from PCW containing recycled label fiber. Finally, UPM Raflatac turns this label facestock into the Label to Label product, creating a truly closed-loop solution.
