At the forthcoming LabelExpo Europe, Munksjö is to showcase new additions to its range of release papers for silicone coating, as well as a new range of specialty face-stock label papers.
The event runs from 29 September to 2 October, where the company will also showcase its collaboration with RecuLiner in the field of recycling of silicone coated release papers.
Based on the company’s patented technology, Munksjö’s range of supercalendered release papers comprises Acti-V® grades for PSA labelstock applications and Acti-V® Industrial grades for double side silicone coating, for technical release liner applications such as Tapes, Medical or Composites.
Acti-V® has gained considerable success thanks to its unique benefits: silicone curing requires less catalyst (platinum) and energy, while silicone anchorage is stronger and more durable, even in challenging environmental conditions.
Acti-V XB, Munksjö’s newest addition to its release papers offering, combines Acti-V® consolidated performances with new benefits. The product’s enhanced surface treatment provides an extra barrier that improves silicone hold-out, with the result of a brighter stain test of siliconized liner at equal amounts of silicone.
Alternatively, the same stain test results can be achieved with a lower silicone coat-weight.
Beyond release liners, Munksjö will also present Adercote, a complete range of specialty papers dedicated to high-end PSA applications such as vegetal oil, wine and spirits or pharmaceutical labels. Ranging from calendered to one-side coated papers, the offering delivers a variety of properties for the most demanding requirements: excellent grease resistance, optimum opacity and high printing results, to name a few.
Munksjö will also demonstrate creative design effects being explored through special offline surface coating.
To support sustainable end-of-life for paper release liners, Munksjö will showcase the innovative option for recycling silicone coated paper into Cellulose Fiber Insulation (CFI), thanks to the collaboration with Belgian company RecuLiner. The patented technology developed by RecuLiner allows transforming silicone coated release paper waste into a natural, high-performance material for use in thermal and sound insulation of buildings.
