Release liners designed to protect mastics, sealants, and tars

Easier fabrication and transportation of roofing and construction materials

The building & construction industry has to meet exacting standards to be compliant with industry codes for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.  Creating these materials may require a siliconized liner to transport these materials to the building site, yet provide consistent and stable release during any time of year or environment – from the hot blazing summer sun, to the frigid temperatures of winter.  

Elkem offers a range of silicone release coatings to support the fabrication of construction materials used in residential, commercial, and industrial building applications. Designed to provide stable and consistent release against mastic, bitumen, acrylic, butyl, and hot melt adhesives over a range of temperatures for all climates and environments.  Whether you are working with film, paper, or poly coated kraft, we can provide options to work with the most demanding and aggressive adhesives and mastic materials.  

What are the key factors for silicone release coating systems for labels and graphic arts applications?
