A release liner is a paper or plastic-based film sheet (usually applied during the manufacturing process) used to prevent a sticky surface from prematurely adhering. It is coated on one or both sides with a release agent, which provides a release effect against any type of a sticky material such as an adhesive or a mastic. Release liners are available in different colors, with or without printing under the low surface energy coating or on the backside of the liner. Release is separation of the liner from a sticky material; liner is the carrier for the release agent. Silicone Release Paper makes a big impact in a lot of little ways throughout our daily lives. From the bandage paper we peel away after a nasty paper-cut to the backing of every postage stamp we place, silicone release paper keeps fresh and tacky a wide variety of adhesives. While normal paper bonds to adhesives, release paper is designed specifically to be easy to pull away, without the risk of it falling off on its own. Utilizing the natural properties of silicone, this release paper sticks to the adhesives without fusing. Just a little pressure is enough to pull away the coated paper from its adhesive, and the adhesive remains tacky and fresh for its intended application. Silicone release paper is also naturally water-resistant and anti-microbial. Commonly used release agents for release liner can be cross linkable silicone, other coatings, and materials that have a low surface energy.
