Elkem Silicones has introduced a new generation of engineered solvent-free polymers with the Poly 600 series, which fits seamlessly into its Optima solventless thermal range. This new range meets a vast array of needs, offering a further step-change in platinum content reduction while enabling faster converting speeds with ultra-flat release profile.
Nicolas Capron, global business manager for the Silcolease range, says, “The use of the new Poly 600 series allows our customers to achieve up to 30% additional platinum reduction versus standard polymers. Customers at the show have been very excited to learn about these new developments.”
Committed to developing a fuller spectrum of solutions for the narrow web and UV curing label producers, the Silcolease team is also showcasing a new UV release coatings solution. Silcolease UV Poly 112 is the newest product added to the UV 100 Series range. Capron adds, “Poly 112 offers better flexibility to narrow web users to achieve the release forces needed in regular label production."
