Growing demand of Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based release coating

The silicone polymer may be selected based on specific release capabilities and other desired properties depending upon the end applications. The preferred silicone polymers are the PDMS polymers, although organo-modified polymers may be used. Coatings made from PDMS offer excellent anchorage to many different substrates and are compatible with a wide variety of adhesives. Furthermore, PDMS-based release coating can be cured quickly, and they are easy to adjust. It enhances the processing, release performance, and cost-effectiveness of the substrate on which the coating is applied.

Increasing uses of release coatings across various application areas

The demand for release coatings will increase across various application areas such as medical, hygiene, tapes, labels, food and beverages, and industrial. The demand is growing on account of the various favorable characteristics of release coatings such as their resistance to chemicals, resistance to corrosion, resistance to heat, anti-stick, durability, chemical insulation, dielectric, and dry lubrication. Release coatings are also finding their use in food packaging and baking, receiving an impetus from the approval by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Thus, increasing applications of release coating is further expected to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

Recent strategic developments in the release coating market

The release coating market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In May 2020, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. developed a new technology for reducing the amount of platinum used in silicone release coatings by about one-half. The main applications are primarily as coated release paper for stickers, labels, and adhesive tapes as well as for release films and manufacturing process release liner.
  • In November 2019, Wacker Chemie AG opened a new silicon metal production facility in Holla, Norway. The company invested USD 111 million in the new plant. The new furnace in this location is one of the largest in the world.

The release coating market is driven by several players by implementing strategic activities such as investments, new launches, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships.
