Dow Corning launches new crosslinkers and release coatings

Dow Corning Corporation added new crosslinkers and release coatings to its Syl-Off Advantage Series product line at Labelexpo Americas. These additions require even lower platinum levels at lower temperatures. The Advantage Series is an extensive line of low-platinum, solventless release coating products used by more than 80 coaters in 25 countries.

‘The platinum market continues to be unstable,’ said Norm Kanar, global release segment team leader for Dow Corning. ‘By using Dow Corning’s low-platinum Advantage Series our customers are less vulnerable to the swings in platinum prices. Plus, our new crosslinkers and release coatings provide improved performance and many choices to meet customers’ needs.’

Dow Corning also displayed its Advantage emulsion release coating series and its coating solutions for many different film types and grades, from temperature-sensitive substrates to unprimed polyester.
