“Aspire. Evolve. Succeed.” with Elkem Silicones at Labelexpo Americas 2022

Elkem Silicones will be highlighting the SILCOLEASETM solventless thermal products for high-speed applications and filmic liners at Labelexpo Americas 2022 September 13-15 in Chicago, IL

Elkem Silicones will feature several SILCOLEASETM solventless thermal products that provide a flat release and work well with applications which run at high converting or coating speeds. Another SILCOLEASETM product being introduced in the solventless thermal range works well with applications that require a filmic liner where anchorage is an issue. Solventless thermal is the dominant release technology used in the pressure sensitive label industry, and these products offer the most efficient thermal curing profile. This provides the flexibility to allow lower temperature operation, increase throughput, or reduce Platinum catalyst dosing.  

Elkem Silicones have been developing and investing in strategic programs to continue to provide the personal touch to our customers. We believe in collaboration and are excited with the new products, experienced and knowledgeable talent, and increasing our NA capacity to support our commitment to Tape and Label manufacturers. We look forward to discussing these new products with you at LabelExpo.” says Julia Souther, Elkem Silicones North American Business Development Manager.
