New World record speed of silicone coating with the help of UPM's label paper

Kroenert Group arranged a technical symposium in their Technology Center in Hamburg in September.

The highlight of the symposium was the demonstration run of the new pilot coater.

The coater reached a new silicone coating world record speed of 1610 m/min. UPM Glassine HON 53 was used as the release liner in the run.

A numerous audience of the symposium participants witnessed the new record.

The new record is an excellent example of a successful co-operation of different partners of the business - consisting of a machinery manufacturer, a silicone producer and a release liner supplier.

The speed development in recent years has been very fast and it has been one of the key tools to improve the cost competitiveness of the converters. This development will certainly continue in the future.
