A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11879081B2) discloses a unique release liner design for adhesive articles. The release liner comprises a carrier substrate, a thermoplastic polymer layer, and a release layer with a network of ridges that create elevations on the surface. The surface on the release layer side features a roughness with a specific number of pits per area, determined using a confocal 3D laser scanning microscope. The pits are stochastically distributed between the ridges, enhancing the functionality of the release liner.

Furthermore, the patent details a process for producing the innovative release liner. This process involves forming a network of channels and roughening the surface of a roll to create peaks, embossing the thermoplastic polymer layer and release layer with the roughened roll to generate ridges and pits, and applying the release layer to obtain the final release liner. The roughening step can be performed using a jet of blasting material, ensuring the desired surface characteristics are achieved. This patented technology aims to improve the performance and efficiency of adhesive articles, offering a novel solution for decorating objects with precision and ease.
