Proven silicone release coating technology cuts costs, creates
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.
