Silicone solutions for 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.  

The release coatings are designed to provide a non-stick surface on a release liner, or to the top side of the carrier to create a self wound tape.  These coatings are ideal for a number of different adhesive types, and designed to work with a variety of substrates and materials, including films, laminations, papers, poly foams, metal foils, scrims and more.  

Being one of the leading players in the release coating industry, we have grown a deep understanding of the tape industry requirements. Our team has developed a full range of technologies adapted to silicones for self-adhesive tapes. 

What are the key factors for silicone release coatings in the pressure sensitive tape applications?

Silcolease Silicone Release Coatings offer a range of release forces for self-adhesive, or pressure sensitive tape applications. These materials can be applied and cured in seconds to offer the following features:   

  • Wide product range and technology to meet different kinds of requirements
  • Simple and flexible formulations
  • Stable release force over time
  • Adjustable release force customizable for your application
  • Fast and efficient high coating speed for maximum throughput
  • Fast cure for efficient and cost effective coating operations.
  • Low migration systems to limit the contamination of the adhesive, giving high subsequent adhesion values.  
  • Release Control Additives (RCA) to adjust release force, making it ideal to create differential release of 2-5 times a smooth release force.
  • UV Silicone technology offers the ability to cure at room temperature to reduce stress and shrinkage on heat sensitive substrates.  
  • Emulsion and solvent technology offers the ability to utilize longer silicone polymers to give more silicone character at the bond line, with added durability.
