Dow Corning Presents Latest Pressure-Sensitive Solutions at Labelexpo India 2012
The new products, which are designed to help label, tape and non-stick packaging manufacturers improve performance, increase productivity, control costs and operate more sustainably, include new Syl-Off brand water-based solutions for coating films and non-stick packaging, along with low-adhesion PSAs for protective films and tapes.
Dow Corning’s new Syl-Off emulsion coatings for non-stick packaging provide a tough, durable and water-repellent surface for food-grade release and packaging paper applications. The coatings offer flat, stable release profiles and fast cure at low platinum levels, which can equal manufacturing cost-savings. The coatings can be applied to a variety of laminate and label stocks.
New thermal-cure silicone Syl-Off emulsion coatings for films can help film coaters optimize their release performance, operate more profitably, and reduce their reliance on solvent-based technology. These unique emulsions deliver low- and stable-release profiles that can add value to finished products. They also offer the potential for low-coat weights and can be applied to PET either in-line or off-line.
With low and stable adhesion, optical transparency, and clean removal under challenging environmental and processing conditions, Dow Corning 7651 Adhesive and Dow Corning 7652 Adhesive support the creation of high-performance protective films for mobile device, touch-screen and flat-panel display applications. The adhesives also can be used to produce cost-saving, waste-reducing reworkable films and tapes.
Dow Corning brand hard-coating solutions give surface-protection films greater durability and hardness while maintaining high transmittance. Designed for use on PET films, these innovative solutions offer superior anti-graffiti performance and ink repellency, plus better grease-removal capability. Dow Corning hard coatings also provide superior water repellency and better mar resistance when compared to an acrylate coating on PET.
