Release coatings are silicone-based chemicals applied in the form of coatings to paper and plastic substances. These release coatings perform the function of a release agent, allowing adhesive to release earlier. The mechanism of releasing the adhesive liner is an extremely complex dynamic process assumed to be based on adhesion, interfacial energy, surface topography, and rheology. Silicon is the key component in these coatings owing to its improved adhesion and resistance to slip, moisture, and abrasion. These substances are commonly used in labels, peel-of-stickers, and on papers in industrial processes.
Increased application and demand from sectors such as labels, hygiene, and food & bakery, growth in demand for water-based coatings and emergence of digital label printing technology are the main market drivers. However, high degree of customization required for varied applications and failure of silicon adhesives under certain conditions might hinder market growth. Development and manufacture of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-based release coatings provides an excellent opportunity to this market.
