A Silicone release liner film has some distinct advantages over using a paper substrate. When we talk release liner we talk about the base paper or base film that is used. In this case we are talking Film. These base films are: PETLDPEHDPEPP. Also see Silicone Release Liner Paper for other benefits and uses of a paper substrate. Film substrates being used in a release liner makes up over 20% of the release liner market and is growing steadily. There are usually cost savings seen due to faster production, more labels per reel and a potential broader range of adhesive options.
