Fascinating Silicone™ Advantages – Paper

A silicone emulsion release coating is ideal for coating the release papers used in baby diaper fastening tapes.

Proven silicone release coating technology cuts costs, creates opportunities

A recent breakthrough in silicone release coating technology has extended the proven cost-saving benefits of a solventless release coating system to label and release-paper manufacturers using water-based coating operations.

The new “Advantage” system, which consists of an emulsion based coating and a concentrated platinum catalyst, possesses unique properties that deliver lower cost in use than previously available technologies.

The high-efficiency platinum catalyst provides very fast cure at low use levels – increasing line speed and reducing costly platinum requirements. The system also delivers outstanding coverage, making it possible for users to reduce coat weights by as much as 15-25 percent. This can reduce raw material and energy costs and enable the use of lower-cost base papers.

The system’s lower cost in use coupled with its release performance make it an excellent choice for a wide range of pressure sensitive laminate/label stock applications, including sanitary napkins, panty liners, baby diapers, and envelope release. The system is also appropriate for non-stick packaging and industrial release papers.
