UPM Raflatac to Launch New Labeling Solutions for Medical Device and Healthcare Industry

UPM Raflatac is set to introduce new labeling solutions for medical device and healthcare industry at this year’s CPhl Innopack exhibition in Germany.

The event will take place between 24 and 26 October.

At the event, the company will exhibit a range of products for medical device and healthcare applications, including new RPMD multi-faceted adhesive that can be used for labeling medical devices.

Various face materials with new RPMD adhesive can be used for different medical device sub-segments, including sterilization wraps and bags, infusion bags and bottles, drug-device combinations such as pens, auto-injectors and inhalers and blood donation labeling.

RPMD adhesive, which is sterilization resistant and migration safe, can combine better adhesion with a tight mandrel hold on glass and plastic.

UPM Raflatac also exhibits pharmaceutical labeling materials, which can be used for packaging of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines.

The firm’s paper-based and filmic label faces can be paired with RP62 EU adhesive for individually authenticated and tamper-evident packs, helping to protect the supply chain from counterfeits.

UPM Raflatac manger of business segments and pharma, specials EMEIA manager Markku Pietarinen said: "In April 2017 the EU Commission formally adopted two new regulations on medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical devices.

“One of the main regulatory updates is the implementation of a Unique Device Identification system (UDI) that provides a globally harmonized and consistent approach for the marking and identification of medical devices.

"A UDI is a code printed on a label affixed to a device or its packaging, or even directly on the device itself, in both plain text and machine-readable format.”
