Solvent-based coatings have a long history of successful use on films and
smooth, hard-surfaced papers with a high degree of solvent holdout.
Good coverage at very low coat weights
Use conventional coating equipment such as Meyer rods and direct
Slightly "swells" some film surfaces, improving anchorage
Potential for film or paper coating damage
Soak-in on more porous paper stocks (When the solvent soaks in, it takes
the silicone with it, leaving less on the surface where it's needed for
More environmental, health, safety and regulatory concerns than
solvent-free systems(However, if you already have incineration or
solvent-recovery equipment in place and are operating within regulatory
guidelines, solvent-based coatings can be an attractive choice.)
The solvent-based delivery system has been used successfully with
platinum-based cure chemistries.
