Silicone Coating Line

November 30, -0001

Dow Corning, Midland, MI, has introduced a low-cost, solventless, silicone release coating line designed to help customers defend themselves against rising platinum prices and other cost-related issues without sacrificing performance. Syl-Off Advantage Series release coatings enable significantly lower platinum usage at 20-50 ppm versus the 100 ppm or more that conventional systems require. Syl-Off Advantage Series is a complete, solventless, platinum-catalyzed, thermal-cure release coating system. It includes a comprehensive selection of base polymers, crosslinkers, release modifiers and catalysts that enable flexible control of cure characteristics, release profile and costs. Two versions of the system accommodate the need for low-temperature cure versus needs for longer thin-film bath stability in hot, high-speed processing operations.
