Evonik, specialists in UV curable silicone release systems for the PSA market, will be showcasing its latest range at Labelexpo Europe 2019. This includes:

The new TEGO® RC 1904, which provides premium release force in high-speed peel applications. Coming as a one-component product, TEGO® RC 1904 provides excellent curing performance with high subsequent adhesion values. In addition, it has good anchorage to many different substrates i.e. plastic films and papers without the need to add organic acrylates. TEGO® RC 1904 ensures premium release forces that remain stable over time even under humid storage conditions.

A novel release coating based on Evonik TEGO® RC 730 offer top face protection for direct thermal linerless labels. It has been developed for non-top coated thermal papers, but can also be used for top coated thermal paper grades. This enables cost competitive solutions using globally available materials and delivers a far superior direct thermal printing performance. This is essential for excellent barcode readability and a prerequisite not only for print and apply in retail and for hand held printers in logistic applications but especially also for labelling postal packages. VIP printing and logistic label application are fast and automated processes with the demand for high reliability.

The thermoprint and dispensing process of labels coated with TEGO® RC 730 will be demonstrated on Logopak’s compact dispenser with innovative cutting tools. Logopak is a co-exhibitor on the Evonik stand (4B60, hall 4).
