Fox River Associates How to Choose the Right Paper Release or Film Release Liner

How to Choose the Right Paper Release or Film Release Liner for My Adhesive

Today’s self-adhesive and pressure-sensitive products are highly technically engineered products. Because of the vast variety of adhesives and substrates available, it is imperative to ensure that all the components work together. So how do you choose the right paper release or film release liner for your adhesive/application?

Fox River Associates has been serving the release liner market since 1990 by offering the highest quality release liners backed by an experienced and educated team that can help you solve your release liner problems.

Choosing the Right Paper Release or Film Release Liner

Fox River Associates has a deep understanding of processing and end applications requirements for the markets we serve. We work in partnership with our customers to recommend the best performing release liner for the required application and conditions.  We take the time to learn about our customers’ exacting specifications, processing conditions and end-use applications.

Here’s how we help you choose the correct release liner:

  1. Understand your adhesive: Our team will collaborate with you to understand the properties of your adhesive. We work together to understand the type of adhesive (such as hot melt or solvent-based), its viscosity, curing time, and any other relevant characteristics. This information helps us determine the type of release liner that will work best with your adhesive. Fox River Associates offers a full breadth of paper release liners and film release liners to meet your application requirements.
  2. Consider the application: The application of your adhesive product will also affect the choice of release liner. Will the adhesive be used in a high-speed production environment or a slower-paced manual application process? Will the adhesive need to adhere to a specific type of surface or substrate? These factors will help you determine the thickness and strength of the release liner needed. Whether your application is in the tape industry, the medical industry, the composites industry, the building industry or another technical industrial application, Fox River Associates is experienced to work with you.
  3. Evaluate the release force: The release force is the amount of force required to separate the release liner from the adhesive. If the release force is too high, it may be difficult to remove the release liner, while if it is too low, the liner may release too easily and cause problems with adhesion. Many Fox River Associates release liners are available in easy-, medium- and high-release characteristics to meet your needs.
  4. Test the release liner: Once you have narrowed down your options, it is important to evaluate the release liner with your adhesive to ensure that it provides the desired release force and other properties. Conducting tests under various conditions (such as temperature and humidity) can help you identify any potential issues and ensure that the release liner works effectively with your adhesive. Our team works with you step by step to identify, trial and scale up the correct release liner to ensure your success.
