SILCOLEASE XL 315 is used as a crosslinker for the bath preparation of SILCOLEASE solventless systems in the proportion of 6 to 18 parts for 100 parts of polymer, and at a Platinum catalyst concentration between 25 and 50 ppm. It is always used with an appropriate polymer and catalyst from the SILCOLEASE range of products.

With some SILCOLEASE vinyl polymers, the addition of SILCOLEASE XL 315 to the coating bath will produce a cloudy formulation. Whilst we recommend very thorough mixing as with all our solventless formulations, the hazy appearance of some baths using SILCOLEASE XL 315 will remain permanently, this is normal and to be expected.

Typical Formulation:

SILCOLEASE Base Vinyl Polymer Product................. 100 parts

SILCOLEASE XL 315.................................................... 6 to 18 parts

SILCOLEASE CATA 12070..........................................1.5 to 3 parts

SILCOLEASE XL 315 has been specifically designed to produce a strong anchorage on a wide variety of substrates. On some papers a longer period of time is required for full anchorage to develop. As the cure of the silicone coating is unaffected by this anchorage phenomenon, stable release values of adhesive in-line coating laminates can be achieved.

Warning: SILCOLEASE CROSSLINKER and SILCOLEASE CATALYST may react violently together and therefore must not be blended together separately from the other components of the system.


SILCOLEASE XL 315 may be stored at temperatures between -20°C / -4°F and 30°C / 86°F for up to 6 months from its date of manufacturing.Please consult the Safety Data Sheet of this product.


SILCOLEASE XL 315 is a methyl hydrogen silicone polymeric based product used as a crosslinker for solventless polyaddition SILCOLEASE systems.
