The ease of release is another factor and is determined by the silicone release liner coating which can be easy, medium, or tight depending on the coat weight. The less silicone on the part, the tighter the release will be and vice versa. The substrate in the application also has a lot to do with the ease of release.
Will it be a multi-line layer or single line layer? When customers need a one-sided silicone release liner, an easy release liner would usually be used. It’s a little trickier when you have a double release adhesive application as one side needs to come off easier than the other side. Once the customer has communicated how the product is going to be used, a determination can be made as to whether the second side will need easy, medium or tight release properties.
If needed, Gasket Engineering will send samples set at different coat weights so that the customer can test them out in their application and provide feedback on which silicone release liner worked best. This allows time to make the necessary adjustments to the release properties before going into full production.
