Global Release Liner Paper Market: Overview

The release liner is a paper or film base which is used to prevent an adhesive from sticking. Release liner paper is a product that carries a sticky substrate on it until its application. Release liner paper can be coated on one side as well as both sides, which generally uses silicone coating. Release liner paper includes three layers which include a release agent, a barrier layer, and a base material. A barrier layer in release liner paper is pre-coated to prevent the soaking of release agent into the base paper material. A glassine paper when used with silicone release agent provides transparency and heat resistance. Release liner paper is used as a carrier for labels on consumer goods. It plays a crucial role in applications of self-adhesive products. Release liner paper market is estimated to have growth during the forecast period, as the self-adhesive paper-based products are recyclable. In some cases, release liner paper is exposed to high fluctuating temperatures which requires high dimensional stability. The release liner paper has high heat resistant and dimensional stability which makes it suitable for weatherproofing, insulation products, and roofing shingles.

Global Release Liner Paper Market: Dynamics

A label provides information about the product packaged as well as protects it until application. Release liner being the carrier for that label, has an impact on the label industry. The demand for high-quality release liner paper is increasing as the market is moving towards bigger and faster equipment. Siliconized release liner paper can be manufactured with number of layers which uses silicone, paper, and polymer layers. These multiple layer release liner papers can be used for pharmaceutical & hygiene applications. The release liner paper market is estimated to have growth in the near future, as the demand for paper-based products is increasing. The recycling of silicone coated paper is comparatively easy than other coating materials, giving a boost to global release liner paper market. The strength of release liner paper is important for adhesive coating, converting and die-cutting. The release liner paper for labels should be manufactured so as to perform in high speed automated equipment.
