Dow Corning Corp. will unveil the latest addition to its Syl-Off Advantage Series of solventless silicone release technologies at Labelexpo Americas 2014, Sept. 9-11. This release coating is designed to promote reliable high-speed/high-volume production in ultra-flat release systems, according to the company. Dow Corning said also it will be featuring its Syl-Off SL 35 Release Modifier.
The Syl-Off Advantage Series release coatings have been designed to enable label manufacturers to reduce system costs, increase converting speeds without impacting quality and use release liners constructed of new filmic and paper materials with thinner gauges. Dow Corning said the Syl-Off family of products significantly lowers platinum usage, enables fast coating speeds and supports a wider range of substrates.
The company's Syl-Off SL 35 Release Modifier offers tight release at very low platinum levels with superior stability and shelf life. It optimizes the potential of Dow Corning's Syl-Off Advantage Series solventless systems to give customers the best results in both quality control and cost savings. It is suitable for use in the manufacturing of pressure-sensitive label stock, single- and double-sided release papers, liners for adhesive tapes and other coatings for sticky materials, Dow Corning said.
