Join us at this year's AWA Label Release Liner Industry Seminar Brazil

Elkem Silicones will be highlighting SilcoleaseTM  solvent-free thermal products for high-speed applications and film coatings at the AWA Brazil Label Release Liner Industry Seminar 2022 on November 3rd in São Paulo.  

Elkem Silicones will present several SilcoleaseTM solvent-free thermal products that provide a flat release and work well with applications that run at high conversion or coating speeds. Another SilcoleaseTM product introduced in the solvent-free thermal line works well with applications that require a filmic liner where anchoring is an issue. Solvent-free thermal is the dominant release technology used in the pressure-sensitive label industry, and these products offer the most efficient thermal cure profile. This provides the flexibility to allow lower temperature operation, increase throughput or reduce platinum catalyst dosage.

Elkem Silicones has been developing and investing in strategic programs to continue giving our customers a personal touch. We believe in collaboration and are excited about the new products, experienced and knowledgeable talent, and the increased ability of our team  in Americas to support our commitment to tape and label manufacturers. We look forward to discussing these new products with you at AWA Label Release Liner Industry Seminar Brazil”, says Julia Souther, Business Development Manager at Elkem Silicones.
