MOSCOW (MRC) -- Evonik, the expert in UV curable silicone release systems for over 30 years, has launched its new TEGO RC 1442 silicone release coating, as per the company's press release.
TEGO RC 1442 is based on Evonik’s existing RC 1400 series technology and delivers all the same easy release performance benefits customers are used to. Developed for fast curing pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) applications, TEGO RC 1442 provides excellent anchorage to substrates and delivers stable release values over time, even under humid storage conditions.
“The increasing demand from our PSA market customers for globally available, easy-to-apply and high-performing UV curable products inspires us to continually review our portfolio to ensure that we deliver the solutions our customers need to meet changing market dynamics like the growth in online shopping,” said Stefan Stadtmueller, Global Head of TEGO RC Silicones at Evonik.
Ideal for release liners for use in all applications, TEGO RC silicones can be used for industrial release liners, self-adhesive labels, graphic arts, tapes and hygienic products including, food packaging and food contact applications.
As MRC informed earlier, in February, 2020, Dow and Evonik entered into an exclusive technology partnership. Together, they plan to bring a unique method for directly synthesizing propylene glycol (PG) from propylene and hydrogen peroxide to market maturity.
Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 1,226,530 tonnes in the first ten months of 2021, up by 26% year on year. Supply of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas supply of injection moulding stat-copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) decreased significantly.
