Press release date: December 13, 2012

Ahlstrom, a global high performance fiber-based materials company, has completed its range of Silco(TM) Flat release papers for Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) graphics, with the addition of newly developed products for the most demanding graphics applications and for plotter cut films.

Large format self-adhesive graphics are applied on large surfaces to create appealing decoration or advertising in architecture, retail, vehicles or exhibitions. Release liners used for such laminates need to be specially designed to perform well during lamination, printing or plotter cutting, in order to deliver outstanding visual effect once the film has been applied on the surface.

As a leading global release papers supplier, Ahlstrom has developed through the years a range of sustainable paper products for PSA graphic laminates, supplied to the key players in this industry. To be aligned with the latest advances in printing and cutting technologies, the Ahlstrom Silco(TM) Flat range was recently enlarged with new high performance materials.

Ahlstrom Silco(TM) Flat Premium has been developed for the most demanding graphic applications. Its increased top and backside smoothness enhance the vinyl film glossiness while its backside moisture barrier ensures outstanding planarity for faultless performance during printing.

Additionally, Ahlstrom Silco(TM) Flat HB has been designed specifically for plotter cut films. Its high internal bond enables a cut with a high degree of precision, even with the most complex shapes or smallest letters. Its high top side smoothness delivers a high gloss and avoids orange peel effect, ensuring perfect finish of the most sensitive vinyls or thin transparent films.

Made of natural fibers, release papers are the most sustainable release liner substrates. Entirely based on renewable raw materials, they are derived from responsible forestry, are recyclable and biodegradable.

Ahlstrom is a global leading producer of release papers, counting on the widest product range on the market, for any PSA application. It operates five release papers production sites located in Europe (4) and South America (1). All of them are ISO 14001, FSC® and / or PEFC(TM) Chain of Custody certified, and are part of Ahlstrom's Label and Processing business area.
