Dow Corning has introduced the Syl-Off Advantage emulsion release coating system. This breakthrough extends the cost-saving benefits of Dow Corning’s proven Advantage Series to water-based coating operations. The new system, which consists of Syl-Off EM 7990 Emulsion Coating and its concentrated platinum catalyst, Syl-Off EM 7975 Catalyst Emulsion, possesses unique properties that deliver lower cost in use than previously available technologies.
The high-efficiency platinum catalyst provides fast cure at low use levels–increasing line speed and reducing costly platinum requirements. The system also delivers outstanding coverage, making it possible for users to reduce coat weights by as much as 15-25%. This can reduce raw material and energy costs and enable the use of lower-cost base papers.
The Advantage emulsion release coating system’s lower cost-in-use coupled with its flat, stable release performance, make it an excellent choice for a wide range of pressure-sensitive laminate/label stock applications, including sanitary napkins, pantyliners, baby diapers and envelope release. The system is also appropriate for non-stick packaging and industrial release papers.
