AHLSTROM: Flat Release Papers

December 20, 2012

This company has reportedly completed its range of Silco(TM) flat release papers for pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) graphics, with the addition of new liners for demanding graphics applications and for plotter cut films.

Large-format self-adhesive graphics are applied on large surfaces to create appealing decoration or advertising in architecture, retail, vehicles, or exhibitions. Release liners used for such laminates need to be specially designed to perform well during lamination, printing or plotter cutting in order to deliver the visual effect once the film has been applied on the surface.

Made of natural fibers, release papers serve to be sustainable release liner substrates. Reportedly based on renewable raw materials, they are derived from responsible forestry, are recyclable and biodegradable.
