Dow Corning Introduces Syl-Off Release System in India

Dow Corning has introduced its new Syl-Off Release System in India. The new system combines Dow Corning's Syl-Off SL 35 Release Modifier and new Syl-Off SL 411 Coating to help customers optimize quality control and cost-effective manufacturing. Syl-Off SL 411 Coating, introduced here now, is a new solventless silicone release polymer technology that offers low platinum levels and optimizes high-speed performance. It provides fast cure and extremely stable release for applications involving bulk roll pressure-sensitive label stock, food packaging and industrial release papers using glassine and super-calendared kraft (SCK) substrates. Syl-Off SL 35 Release Modifier, used together with Dow Corning's new Syl-Off SL 411 Coating, offers tightly controlled, but flexible modification of a coating's release force. It combines very low platinum levels with superior stability and shelf life to optimally balance quality control and cost savings. This new addition to Dow Corning's Syl-Off Advantage Series improves the manufacture of pressure-sensitive label stock, single- and double-sided release papers, liners for adhesive tapes and other coatings for sticky materials. Dow Corning developed the Syl-Off Advantage Series of solventless silicone technologies to help customers reduce exposure to variations in platinum prices without sacrificing release performance. The Syl-Off Advantage Series offers a comprehensive selection of base polymers, crosslinkers, release modifiers and catalysts - all engineered to optimize flexibility in controlling release, cure and cost.
