VPF Responds to Market Demand: UL969 Certification
for Four 
Self-Adhesive Materials

OCtober 2013

In response to market demand, the Sprockhövel-based manufacturer VPF GmbH & Co. KG has included four new UL-certified products in its portfolio. The products in question are high-performance polyester films with a UV-crosslinked adhesive coating (HM 710UV, 25 g/m2), with a line of white glassine paper (63 g/m2), article reference B 700-473. The films are all 50 μ thick and obtainable in matte silver, matte white, glossy white and glossy transparent.

The self-adhesive materials were tested for their compliance with the UL969 quality requirements and therefore satisfy the independent test institute’s safety standard. One of the most important criteria was UL’s approval of the adhesive material – especially with regard to temperature and UV resistance. The films produced by the selfadhesivespecialist from Sprockhövel are ideal, among other things, for overseas labels – above all for the automobile industry in North and South America.
