What Release Liner is Right for Me – Paper or Film?

A release liner is a product that carries a sticky substrate (pressure sensitive adhesive) until it is ready for its next step. Sometimes called a ‘carrier’ or a ‘backing’ paper/film, release liners hold onto or carry the sticky substrate, until whatever it is carrying is ready to be released.

Release liner can be film-based, paper-based, polycoated-paper based, or even have unique substrates, such as metallized papers/films as their base. Release liner substrates are often coated with silicone, which allows whatever the liner is carrying to release from the liner when the time is right. However, this release can also be accomplished with non-silicone coatings or even with a surface characteristic of the substrate that doesn’t require a coating at all. These are highly specialized release liners.

Fox River Associates has been providing the highest quality paper release liners and film release liners to multiple industries for over 30 years.
