Elkem Silicones meets with the specialty paper value chain
Our Silcolease® Release Coatings team will be attending the “Specialty Paper Conference” from April 23rd to 25th in Cologne, Germany. This seminar will bring together over 200 key industry experts from across the paper supply chain to hear about the latest updates on advancements and trends affecting the industry and to share knowledge and ideas. The conference offers attendees the chance to discuss on market overview and trends, innovation, new technologies, new material and packaging sustainability.
For over 30 years, Elkem Silicones has developed the Silcolease® range of release coating solutions for non-stick, inert and heat resistant release liners for papers and film coatings. By offering silicone release coatings in the widest range of formats, such as solvent-based, solventless and water-dilutable emulsion formulations, users can choose the system most appropriate for their specific coating equipment and substrate while taking into account energy, sustainability, regulatory and safety requirements.
Jérôme Salvert, Technology Expert for Elkem Silicones, will hold a conference on “Everything you ever wanted to know about on-machine siliconizing but were afraid to ask”. Undisputed global leader in the field of “on-machine” release coatings, Elkem Silicones with its Silcolease® emulsion range will share the potential markets & applications for release liners. Our expert will present the potential possibilities to coat “on-machine” for these applications and then share some of our expertise on the major pitfalls, hurdles and eventual keys to success to this route to add value to paper.
