UPM Raflatac releases premium gloss UVI

UPM Raflatac releases premium gloss UVI

UPM Raflatac has launched a new premium gloss UVI, a premium-gloss paper labelstock for UV inkjet printing on the market.

The labelstock is ideal for multicolor labels requiring excellent print definition and fine details using UV inkjet printers, new premium gloss UVI can help printers and converters achieve results that once seemed impossible.

This trimless service has optimized gloss, opacity, brightness and smoothness and is available with both RP51 general purpose adhesive and RP48AT all-temperature adhesive for food and beverage applications.

UPM Raflatac collaborated with a number of industry-leading printing press manufacturers to achieve excellent print quality on their machines.

‘Feedback from many UV inkjet press manufacturers indicated that semi-gloss paper was an industry-wide challenge,’ said Kirit Naik, director of R&D for UPM Raflatac Americas. ‘By working in parallel with the OEMs we developed our new Premium Gloss UVI, which has exceeded the expectations of the industry.’

‘Reaction from our key development partners for UPM Raflatac’s premium gloss UVI has been overwhelmingly positive,’ said Amy Jensen, director of specials for UPM Raflatac Americas. ‘Digital printing is a dynamic market, and UV inkjet has enjoyed a tremendous growth over the past few years. Standard mid-gloss papers can leave the labels with a mottled appearance or inconsistent print quality. But premium gloss UVI offers dependable color reproduction job-to-job. We’re so proud to be the first labelstock company to bring this innovative, superior solution to market.’
