TEGO® RC Silicones - Versatility at your service
A key feature of all self-adhesive (pressure sensitive) products is the permanently tacky adhesive. It is only possible to produce self-adhesive products and transport them to the point of application if this tacky surface is protected by a carrier. For this purpose the contact side of the carrier material is silicone coated. Such a carrier is often called a release liner.
Due to their versatility, TEGO® RC Silicones are used to produce release liners for many self-adhesive applications. Our radiation cured silicones generate new business opportunities because they can bring solutions to problems which traditionally cured silicones can not solve.
Cold curing technology enables the use of heat-sensitive substrates like PE, PP, PET, BOPP
The fast curing reaction enables high line speeds. Suitable for in-line processes (adhesive coating, printing, double side coating)
No remoisturisation of paper substrates, no paper shrinkage
Absolute lay flat performance of paper backed laminates
Almost unlimited choice of substrate with free radical curing silicones
Environmentally friendly (i.e. low energy consumption, no solvents)
