Our full range of release coatings for papers & films
Silicone release coatings for Labels & Graphics 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.
Silicone solutions for self-adhesive tapes
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 coated paper for baking and cooking
Silicone release coatings help create baking and cooking liners offering optimal release and greaseproof whether for home or professional use.
Silicone emulsion systems can be applied in-line on paper machines as well as coated off-line on a paper base.
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 for hygiene applications
Silicone release coatings help create smooth and easy release in baby diaper, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products.
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.
The use of adhesives can be a key factor to the design and function of many self-adhesive applications found in the hygiene market. The ease of attachment and reattachment for a diaper tape can help a struggling parent or an aging adult. The slim profile and soundless opening of a feminine sanitary pad allows for discretion for the on the go woman.

Silicone PSA for Splicing Tapes
Quick stick and high temperature resistance make Silcolease™ Silicone PSAs ideal for splicing tape applications.
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.
Silicone for protective films on smartphones
Create a durable and robust protective film for display screens
The invention of touch screen technology has changed how the world interacts with the technology at our fingertips. The use of protective films to protect these electronic devices during and after the manufacturing process is required to avoid damage and scratches that may degrade the optical clarity of the screen.
Silicone adhesive coatings for MICA insulation Tapes
Silicone pressure sensitive adhesives offer excellent insulation for cables
Mica tapes are widely chosen for electrical insulation purposes; therefore, it is critical that the pressure sensitive adhesives and resins coated or impregnated on these tapes are resistant to extreme temperatures but also humidity.
Silicone for masking tapes on electronics circuit board
Silicone pressure sensitive adhesives protecting your electronics
The idea of masking a component during a manufacturing process has evolved through the years, as parts become more intricate, smaller, and more complex. The temporary masking and protection has been used in various industries ranging from aerospace landing struts to the smallest connections on a circuit board, each application requiring the masking to survive higher temperatures, or more aggressive processes.
