Emulsion Release Coating System

November 30, -0001

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.
