Dow Presents New Silicone Offerings at LabelExpo Americas 2018

Company unveils new SYL-OFF™ Release Modifier technology to revolutionize pressure sensitive label converting.

Today, the Dow Chemical Company (Dow) announced the launch of a novel Release Modifier technology, SYL-OFF™ SL25 Release Modifier, at LabelExpo Americas 2018 in Chicago.

Dow’s Technical Specialists are on site at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center to promote the products and the integrated Silicone Solutions business.

"SYL-OFF™ SL25 Release Modifier represents a new standard in pressure sensitive labels," said Joanna Giovanoli Potts, Market Manager of Pressure Sensitive Industries at Dow. "As processing and converting conditions become more challenging, performance requirements also increase. SYL-OFF™ SL25 Release Modifier designed to meet these demands offering a flatter release profile."

In addition to its benefits during processing, SYL-OFF™ SL25 Release Modifier is a solventless and olefin-free formulation. The performance profile of the pressure sensitive construction can be tuned to meet the low release forces that enable high-speed matrix stripping operations, while simultaneously delivering the higher release forces needed at end use applications such as hand-peel.

"With live tech demonstrations and leaders across the entire label and package printing value chain, LabelExpo is an ideal backdrop to showcase additions to Dow’s broad range of differentiated solutions in the pressure sensitive industry." said Giovanoli Potts. "LabelExpo is the perfect place to launch our latest technology in the SYL-OFF™ range, which provides a silicone release option to label needs.

Joining the introduction of SYL-OFF™ SL25 Release Modifier is the new ROBOND™ PS 7735, an all-temperature acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive, representing the acrylic portion of the pressure sensitive adhesives portfolios.

In addition to the new product launches, customers can rely on Dow for its wide range of SYL-OFF™ release liner coatings, as well as its broad range of silicone pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) solutions available in the DOWSIL™ brand product portfolio.

With the unified portfolio, Dow has the broad product portfolio and deep technical expertise to understand customer needs in every aspect of label creation. In addition, customers benefit from having a full-service supplier of acrylic and silicone pressure sensitive adhesives and silicone release coatings, along with expert local technical support and R&D.
