Bakery & Food
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 release coated papers are biodegradable and compostable according to applicable industry standards.
