UPM Raflatac introduces Syntyre Plus

UPM Raflatac introduces Syntyre Plus

UPM Raflatac is broadening its range of tire labeling products with Syntyre Plus, a polypropylene (PP) film that has been specially designed to withstand the tough challenges of tire labeling applications.

A special barrier layer on the backside of the film combines with the RHT tire adhesive to ensure that labels stay looking good with no edge lift or staining, with safety-critical information and key branding elements remaining in place and readable until the label is no longer needed.

‘At UPM Raflatac we work hard to understand the needs of our customers and brand owners so we can develop dedicated solutions to help them solve their labeling challenges,’ said Martti Vähälä, business development and segment manager, UPM Raflatac, tire and wet wipes, specials. ‘Syntyre Plus solves the common problems seen when standard PP labels are used in tire labeling, such as curling and swelling caused by chemicals in the tire surface or label adhesive leaching through to the label surface.’


The Labels & Labeling global editorial team covers every corner of the world from Europe and the Americas, to India, Asia, Southeast Asia and Australasia with all the latest news from the label and package printing market.
