Profile, Speed and Robustness

Silicone polymers define the release profile. Flat profiles are linked to speed. Increasing profiles result in robust systems.

WACKER SILICONES offers two DEHESIVE® polymer families. The multibranched (MB) polymers are in the family of DEHESIVE® SFX products and the linear vinyl endcapped (VE) polymers are in the standard DEHESIVE® family. All products are also available as AMA® versions containing an antimisting agent for high-speed coating applications.

Formulating the right release system requires silicone polymers, which offer ideal release properties and cure quickly. DEHESIVE® polymers with flat release-force profiles can be used for making materials such as label laminates that can be processed at exceptionally high speeds. DEHESIVE® polymers with a rising release-force profile are robust and suitable for a wide variety of applications and adhesives.

Speed and Grip

Fast crosslinkers for perfect surfaces. Strong grip crosslinkers for challenging terrain.

Because they have a major impact on the anchorage of the coating to the substrate and on the interaction with the adhesive, the type and amount of the crosslinker are key parameters influencing the cost efficiency of manufacturing and the long-term stability of the laminate. The WACKER portfolio includes crosslinkers offering extremely short curing times for the perfect substrate, and crosslinkers that allow coatings to stick to even the most difficult substrates.

Add the Right Dynamic

Diluted platinum catalysts are easy to dose for exact and reproducible speed.

Platinum catalysts are used for accelerating the reaction, allowing DEHESIVE® polymers and crosslinkers to cure quickly – even when processed at temperatures as low as 85°C. WACKER platinum catalysts allow any system to proceed at just the right speed. Whether highly concentrated or dilute, there is the right catalyst for any formulation or mixing equipment.

Steer Your Release

Resins bring the release force up to the required level.

Release force plays a major role in every formulation: by incorporating specialized silicone resins into the chemical structure of the coating system, WACKER CRA® controlled-release additives tailor the release force between silicone coatings and adhesives.
