UPM Raflatac is introducing a significantly improved universal topcoat for all its main PE and PP film products in the European market. The new topcoat will allow a greater range of printing methods to be used on standard films, reducing inventory requirements and making printers’ production processes more efficient.
The new topcoat has been designed using the Triple Gamma (3G) approach, which enables reliably high performance across a wide range of applications. This optimization affects the interaction between the ink and the topcoat, leading to a large number of notable benefits, including significantly improved UV-inkjet printability, improved printability with UV-flexo printing, better ink wet-out, potentially lower ink consumption, and reduced blocking with PP clear-on-clear.
“Multipurpose films make life much easier for printers,” explains Anniina Kujala, Segment Manager, Films EMEIA, UPM Raflatac. “The more robust and versatile a film is, the fewer types of film you need to keep in stock, improving inventory control and efficiency.”
