Comprehensive Applications of Silcolease™ Silicone Coatings

Silcolease™ Silicone Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA) offer high performance self-adhesive bonding in many electronic applications and are enablers of processes where organic adhesives lack the necessary resistance to extreme temperatures or chemical exposure. Silcolease™ PSA also offer unique dielectric, transparency and spreading properties that make them the ideal companions in electronic component manufacture.

  • Masking tapes for high temperature 
  • Film protection for smartphones and tablet screens
  • Durable goods labels for harsh environments
  • Good adhesion to low surface energy substrates and low adhesion on sensitive substrates

Our Silcolease™​ range also includes components and additives for other functional coatings offering:

  • Slip control coatings
  • Anti-mar performance in decorative coatings and inks
  • Photoinitiator for UV coatings and inks

Whatever you are looking for in your paper and film coatings, our Silcolease™ range will help deliver the right solution.
