UPM Raflatac achieves APR Critical Guidance recognition

The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) has recognized UPM Raflatac's PE and PP pressure sensitive label materials with general purpose acrylic adhesive for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers as meeting or exceeding the most strict APR HDPE Critical Guidance criteria for recyclability.

These white and clear PP and PE label materials combined with multi-purpose acrylic adhesives are part of UPM Raflatac's SmartCircle portfolio of labeling materials that enable recyclability of packaging and promote the circular economy. The Critical Guidance recognition means the label materials are proven to be compatible with standard HDPE container recycling practices. They are suitable for a variety of end uses, including food and home and personal care.
