New Raflasec range of innovative security labeling materials promises a full 30-month window for any requalification requirements, with a two-year shelf life from the date of manufacture and six months’ notice of any future change. Each of the four new materials has unique security, anti-counterfeiting, and tamper-proof features.
Raflasec Holo Security is a holographic material that can be combined with security cuts so that the label breaks when tampered with. The material’s attractive appearance makes it an ideal choice for luxury packaging applications.
Raflasec Fibres contains both visible and invisible fibers to allow authentication under UV light. This material has a chemical sensitization feature, meaning it changes color if removal with chemicals is attempted. It also has low internal strength to ensure that the label tears easily if someone tries to peel it off.
Raflasec Seal also tears easily and offers low investment costs, high opacity, and high printability.
Raflasec Chameleon is a unique purple-green material that is virtually impossible to copy. When this eye-catching label is removed it changes color and cannot be reapplied, while its dry-peel feature ensures that no adhesive residue is left behind.
Raflasec Holo Security and Raflasec Chameleon are both available in smaller order quantities from UPM Raflatac’s Small Roll Service, which provides pressure-sensitive labeling materials to help customers enter new markets or expand business opportunities with smaller stock quantities.
“Our change management guarantee for products in the new Raflasec range ensures long-term supply stability for manufacturers and reduces the need for requalification,” explains Thomas Treichel, Segment Manager, Security, Postal, UPM Raflatac. “All the products in the range are fully backed up by our global supply chain, world-class expertise, and comprehensive customer support – bringing even greater peace of mind to security labeling.”
