Avery Dennison recently recognized WACKER and Swedish specialty paper manufacturer Munksjö with the Best Supplier Sustainability award for their joint efforts in developing a low-platinum solution for silicone release liners. The silicone coating reportedly ensures that self-adhesive labels can easily be removed.

“We—and I’m including the entire business team in this—are delighted with this award,” said Auguste Willems, Executive Board member. “The Avery Dennison award shows that sustainability is playing an increasingly important role for our customers. By consistently developing our DEHESIVE® silicones further, we have succeeded in continuously improving the sustainability and cost efficiency of release coating formulations.”
