Silicones in “release coating” applications and typical substrate choices
many cases one silicone system can work for a wide variety of applications but
for seemingly similar applications the silicone technology used can be totally
different. The coating machine and process plays a big role in the definition
of the coating system. From wide web coaters to narrow web labelling machines,
from paper machine applied grades to film coating lines, line speeds from 50 to
1200 m/min, there are many and varied factors which influence the choice of the
ideal silicone system to make a release liner suited to the end application.
