iSys Label Certifies UPM Raflatac Material for Printer

CALGARY, AB, CANADA | iSys Label and iSys–The Imaging Systems Group, the Canadian developers and manufacturers of short- to mid-run digital label printers, announce an additional GHS BS5609 material has passed Section 3 certification for use in the EDGE 850 digital label printer. The recently approved substrate is matte white polyester from UPM Raflatac, with part number LS276R. Rolls of material can be purchased from iSys-appointed converters in the US.

Randy Rickert, director at iSys Label, says “We’ve developed a strong relationship with UPM Raflatac over the years and are pleased to announce the addition of their substrate to our Certified Media Library. This material will provide our users with access to more solutions when printing BS5609-compliant labels.”

In order to print fully compliant drum and chemical labels, the facestock, adhesive and printed graphic all need to meet the requirements for sections 1, 2, and 3 of BS5609 standards and be independently tested and certified by PIRA (the Print Industry Research Association). The printed labels are exposed to artificial weathering, tape removal, and abrasion resistance tests to ensure they are capable of withstanding the harshest environments and prove their durability.
