Solutia Inc. recently announced that its CPFilms business, a leading manufacturer of precision-coated films for industrial, commercial and solar-control applications, is introducing MF5, a premium clean, optically clear protective masking film. Due to the very high coefficient of friction (COF) on the surface of MF5, it demonstrates light tack and static cling-like properties (without the static) when applied to various films and materials, including aluminum-metallized PET, glass, polycarbonate, polyester, acetate, and many others. Employing silicone chemistry and coated in a clean-room environment to avoid contamination, MF5 has no adhesive residue and contains less that 0.4 micrograms per sq cm of extractable silicone. It is very easy to remove, yet adheres strongly to other substrates during processing at temperatures up to 325 degrees F. Available on a "made-to-order" basis, MF5 is coated on 1.5, 2 and 3 mil optically clear polyester film.
