​​​​​​Explore your Future with Elkem Silicones at Labelexpo Americas 2018 

Elkem Silicones will showcase the entire Silcolease® range for the label industry at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas 2018 September 25-27 in Chicago, IL join us at our booth 3605​​​.

Elkem Silicones will feature both the Silcolease® Optima solventless thermal​ and Silcolease® UV range of products.  Solventless thermal is the dominant release tec​​hnology used in the pressure sensitive label industry and the Optima system offers the most efficient thermal curing profile.  This​ provides the flexibility to allow lower temperature operation, increased throughput, or reduction in Platinum catalyst dosing.   

The UV cure product range covers both cationic and free radical technologies and is designed for label, tape and hygiene applications including linerless constructions. Included in this line up is Silcolease® ​​UV Poly 120​, a ready-to-use, easy release free radical acrylate requiring no weighing or mixing of components.  Elkem Silicones will also be introducing Silcolease® UV ADD 151, a free radical UV adhesion promoter, along with new acrylate polymers for both premium and high release applications.  ​​​

Elkem Silicones will also be present at the 11th annual AWA Global Release Liner Industry Conference & Exhibition 2018 ​will be held in Chicago, IL on September 24th located with Labelexpo Americas.  This is a key event for all associated with Pressure-Sensitive Label​ and Release Liner ​ Market, whether you are a supplier, producer, converter or user.
