3M, through its Commercial Graphics Division, has entered into a licensing agreement granting limited rights to 3M patented technology to Mondi, a manufacturer of release liners. The licensed technology enables Mondi to structure the surface of its release liners in specific patterns related to the manufacture of large format graphic films to enable these graphics to be applied more easily, quickly and with fewer defects.
 
“We are pleased to have negotiated this agreement and establish an official license for Mondi and its customers to use this technology," says Tom Black, marketing operations manager, 3M Commercial Graphics. "The application benefits of this technology have changed the large format graphics industry, resulting in rapidly increasing demand. 3M is offering limited rights to this technology to Mondi and manufacturers of pressure sensitive graphic films. We believe licensing this technology will accelerate growth in the industry."
 
“Together with its innovative extrusion coating methods,” says Willi Munninger, technical director, Mondi Coating & Release, “Mondi now offers a variety of structured release liners based on this technology that enables large format graphics manufacturers to provide high quality pressure sensitive adhesive laminates.”
