The new release coatings being launched by Dow Performance Silicones were purposely developed for customers in China’s electronics industry to be used throughout the lifecycle of electronic devices

Included in the Launch are:

  • SYL-OFF™ EM-7953 - an emulsion release coating both for in line and off-line coating on PET substrate
  • Dow Corning® 7687 Protective Film PSA - a new high-solid/high-adhesion Pt-cure PSA
  • SYL-OFF™ 7792 and SYL-OFF™ 7795 Fluorosilicone Release for diverse challenging applications which required ultra-low and stable release force 

Together, these innovative silicone technologies address growing demand for pressure-sensitive materials that help to increase productivity and sustainability, lower costs and facilitate the adoption of new filmic substrates with better processing and mechanical properties vs. competitive products.

They include water-based emulsion release coatings, solvent-based and solvent-less release coatings and platinum-cure PSAs.

SYL-OFF™ EM-7953 Release Coating

Dow Performance Silicones developed SYL-OFF™ EM-7953 Release Coating to meet the need for greater flexibility in filmic release liner applications and the growing adoption of PET substrates in the Chinese market. Developed for both for in line and off-line coating on PET substrates, this new technology provides low, stable release with lower coat weight.

SYL-OFF™ 7795 & SYL-OFF™ 7792 Fluorosilicone Release Coatings

To solve the pain point of ultra-low release force applications, Dow Performance Silicones’ new SYL-OFF™ 7795 Fluorosilicone Release Coatings has been developed for silicone PSA wet casting, and SYL-OFF™ 7792 Fluorosilicone Release Coatings has been developed for dry lamination, to provide lower release force and good compatibility with the company’s Silicone PSAs.

These breakthroughs in advanced materials help increase the performance and sustainability characteristics of a manufacturer’s products without adding to their costs,” said Frank Huo, Global Segment Leader & Greater China Marketing Manager of Dow Corning.

By allowing thinner coat weights, avoiding VOC emissions, improving optical clarity and enabling fast curing at lower temperatures, these advanced silicone technologies, are giving customers the competitive advantage they need to succeed in the highly competitive packaging sector.
