SilForce SLAM* 3000 technology significantly improves label release coatings.

Momentive Performance Materials has received the 2010 Technology in Production Award from the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), a not-for-profit organization covering the state capital region in Albany, NY. The CEG awards program honors the region’s innovative and growth-oriented companies and individuals representing technology industries.

Momentive was recognized for improving its production process for SilForce SLAM* 3000 silicone anti-mist additive, which is used in label release coating systems. The new process improves product consistency and increased first-pass yield from 72% to 100% while providing better product viscosity. The additive production process also shortened overall production and equipment cleaning times and enabled reductions in clean-out and waste generation per unit of product produced. This adds up to greater quality and a potentially higher operating profit margin for Momentive and more consistent products for customers.

“We are very proud of innovative teams throughout our company who are able to deliver tremendous value for Momentive and for our customers, and we are thrilled to receive the recognition our production process has earned from the Center for Economic Growth,” said Eric Thaler, Momentive CEO.
