Silcolease® UV POLY 120

​The Challenge

As a printer or converter of pressure sensitive label products, you may wish to coat your own silicone release coatings for linerless labels, piggyback labels, VIP forms or for cost savings. Applying a silicone coating on a printing press can be challenging, especially if formulation is necessary or if the application is over print. Handling and processing of traditional silicone release coating systems requires multiple steps of dispensing, weighing, and mixing separate components prior to use. Application onto a printed surface may also pose challenges for certain silicone systems.
