Innovative release coatings for hygiene applications
Whether your hygiene applications use MG kraft, porous or open papers, we have emulsion-based solutions for release coatings that are specifically tailored to meet your needs.
SYL-OFF™ Silicone Release Coatings from Dow enable sufficient release performance from typical hot melt pressure sensitive adhesives. Our silicone release coatings also provide a range of anchorage and release performance capabilities for all your diverse hygiene applications that require self-adhesive closures:
- Feminine hygiene products and sanitary napkins
- Panty liners
- Incontinence aids
Due to the typically porous/open nature of the substrates used in hygiene release applications, we recommend that special care be taken to achieve good silicone coverage of the substrate surface. Platinum-based emulsion coatings, in combination with thickeners and other organic additives, offer a good solution to this problem.
In addition to release coatings, we also offer release modifiers and recommendations to address a number of processing challenges associated with hygiene product production (including antifoams, wetting additives and thickeners).
Release liner performance – achieving more with less silicone
From hygiene applications to consumer goods, when it comes to porous paper, release liner manufacturers need a high performing coating. Discover how SYL-OFF™ SL 351 Coating helps and contributes to a better circularity.
