Dow Corning has introduced a new Syl-Off Advantage emulsion release coating system. The new system, which consists of Syl-Off EM 7990 Emulsion Coating and its concentrated platinum catalyst, Syl-Off EM 7975 Catalyst Emulsion, possesses properties that deliver lower cost in use than previously available technologies. The company says the high-efficiency platinum catalyst provides very fast cure at low use levels, increasing line speed and reducing costly platinum requirements. It is possible for users to reduce coat weights by as much as 15-25 percent. This can reduce raw material and energy costs and enable the use of lower cost base papers. The system offers benefits such as good shear stability, ease of mixing and long bath life for greater application flexibility.
