Munksjö introduces a new clay-coated release paper for composite release liners

Munksjö, a world-leading manufacturer of advanced papers products, will launch
a new clay coated release paper for double side silicone coating for
application as release liner in composites reinforcement materials.

The new product, Silco 2S Ultrastable, is a double-sideed clay coated paper
which can be silicone coated on one or both sides. In addition to consistent
siliconizing guaranteed by its high surface smoothness, the product features an
excellent level of dimensional stability thanks to the moisture barrier
provided by its surface coatings. This means the release paper will shrink and
expand considerably less when going through steep changes of temperature and
humidity in the manufacturing and converting process of pre-impregnated
composite materials.

Thanks to the combination of strength and light-weight, composites materials
are increasingly used as reinforcements by diverse industries such as marine,
aerospace, wind-energy, leisure or automotive. Their manufacturing demands high
quality release liners due to the technical requirements of the process, as
well as the high value of the composite products.

Munksjö offering for composites release liners also includes Acti-V® Industrial
supercalandered release papers for double side silicone coating.

Munksjö Release Liners Business Area, one of Munksjö's four business areas, is
a global leading supplier of release papers for the PSA industry, with
manufacturing sites in Europe and South America. All of them are certified
according to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007, FSC® and PEFC
