Silicone Value
Silicone represents only some 5 percent of the material cost of labelstock, but in these hard times every cost element is coming under scrutiny. Germany’s Wacker Silicones reckons it has come up with a winner.
Its latest silicone systems, says Technical Service Manager Hans Lautenschlager, enable this expensive raw material to be spread more thinly onto the release liner. The silicone also contains an anti-misting additive, which enables coating machines to run faster. Hard-pressed labelstock manufacturers are said to be sitting up and taking notice.
