Thermoplastics films have been used in the manufacture of release liners for many years. Filmic release liners have found many applications in a wide variety of industries and end-uses, where their properties may be more appropriate than a paper based release liner.
The majority of filmic liners are based on three families of thermoplastic polymers – Polyethylene, Polypropylene and Polyethylene Teraphthalate. However, there is enormous potential for customising both the polymers and the film production processes which has resulted in the proliferation of a daunting range of variants and properties to choose from.
Cotek offer a range of filmic release liners, based on the three families of thermoplastic polymers, to compliment the range of paper based release liners. They are similarly available with one or two-side silicone coatings and with a comparable range of controlled release properties.
A wide range of film thicknesses, colours and properties are available to suit the customers application, and most films can be backprinted or printed before siliconising.
