Dow Silicone Release Coatings Carbon Footprint Labelexpo Europe Dow presented its high-performance, SYL-OFF™ Protect – a carbon neutral selection of SYL-OFF™ silicone release coatings at Labelexpo Europe 2023, held from September 11-14, 2023. It is a part of Dow’s commitment to deliver a sustainable future for the world through materials science.

Certified by an independent third party according to PAS 2060, the products offer the same quality and performance customers in the label industry expect from standard SYL-OFF™ silicone release coatings, with the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint.

Solvent-free Solutions

SYL-OFF™ SL 184 coating is a solvent-free solution suitable for high-speed coating operations. It is fast curing, minimizes mist at very high line speeds and provides extremely stable release. In addition to its recent 2023 R&D 100 Award, it has notably earned a 2022 Silver Edison Award, a 2022 SEAL Sustainability Award and has recently been shortlisted for the Innovation Award in the Label Awards 2023.

SYL-OFF™ SL 351 Coating is a solvent-less silicone release coating that reduces soak-in for porous substrates, allowing producers to realize cost gains through less expensive paper and decreased silicone usage. SYL-OFF™ SL 351 Coating can be used across a wide range of applications.

Many of our customers in the label industry are looking for innovative technologies that not only provide them with the quality they need, but also help them meet their sustainability targets. Our selected range of SYL-OFF™ Protect silicone release coatings are making it possible by combining reduction of carbon footprint without compromising on quality,” said Nathalie Gerard, European market manager for Dow Pressure Sensitive Industries.

We’re excited to introduce this carbon neutral selection of SYL-OFF™ Silicone Release Coatings, at Labelexpo Europe and connect with our customers to show them how, together, we can align performance with sustainability for continued progress towards a more sustainable world,” added Gerard.
