Release coatings for papers & films
Silicone coated paper used for baking and cooking
Silicone release coatings help create baking and cooking liners offering optimal release and greaseproof whether for home or professional use.
Commonly used in food preparation in parchment papers and baking tray liners, silicone release non-stick coatings are widely used to prevent batters from sticking to pan liners. These silicone release coated papers are designed to handle the higher temperature baking conditions. Using these non-stick coated baking papers or liners make the baking process easier, reduce the cleanup time, and allow food to be removed quickly and efficiently with less effort and waste. These eco-friendly release coated papers are biodegradable and compostable.
Silicone release coatings used for hygiene applications
Silicone Silcolease™ system can be applied quickly and efficiently at low coat weights on low grammage paper, and polyolefin films to give unique processing advantages including heat sensitive substrates.
Silicone release liners used for Labels & Graphic Arts
Design a release liner around your adhesive to get the performance you need.
Labels and Graphics plan an important role in our lives all around us. They carry brand identification, instructions, cost, safety information, or encourage us to buy, wear, or use a certain product. The look and feel of these labels and signs, whether it is on a package sitting on the shelf at the store, on a billboard, or on a truck driving by on the highway are meant to be eye catching and appealing. Each label or graphic sign, from the very small labels on a piece of fruit to large vehicle wraps, are all carried through the process on a release liner.

Reliable silicone solutions for specialty self-adhesive tapes.
A variety of tapes are used across a vast range of industries to bond, seal, and adhere different surfaces together. The applications found in electronics, medical, automotive, white goods, and consumer goods can range from large wide rolls to micro applications.
Silicone pressure sensitive adhesives for splicing tapes
Splice a variety of substrates with Silicone PSA for splicing tapes
Wide web label and tape manufacturers have to run smoothly and efficiently with minimal interruptions and stops to make their process economical & cost efficient. Automated turrets allow for a new roll to start as the previous roll stops as they employ a flying splice: a process to allow the trailing edge of the previous roll to come in contact with the leading edge of the new roll and pull it along into the process. When the rolls are silicone coated rolls, a silicone pressure sensitive adhesive makes for an ideal splicing tape to hold the trailing edge and leading edge of the paper to stick together through the web path and into the oven, all in one smooth continuous process.
