There are times when labels must be removed and replaced frequently, particularly in the transport and logistics industries. For example, recyclable crates and even airline meal containers must be relabelled often. To avoid possible error, the old label must be removed first, but adhesive and paper residues have proved problematic in the past.

UPM Raflatac has developed a dissolving label that they report will overcome these problems for its clients in the transport and logistics industries. According to the company, the label is compatible with thermal printing systems and is easily and completely removed with cold water thanks to the dissolving paper and adhesive combination they developed. Because the paper dissolves completely, there is no danger of blocking drains with paper residue during the process.

In addition, the labels are BPA and BPS-free. The new dissolving Paper Thermal Eco label solution is the latest addition to the company’s product range which includes the existing Dissolving Paper Plus label.
