The liner base paper is pattern coated in the web direction. The non-siliconized portion is typically on one or both edges of the liner and provides a mechanism for locking the liner to the rest of the form. This is often used in laser applications and helps prevent any pre-dispensing of the labels in the laser printer. The "frozen edge" of the liner can be any width, down to 1/8". If you request a pattern that we do not have on hand, lead time may be increased by up to five days.

The release coating is compatible with a wide range of rubber-based hot melt pressure-sensitive adhesives.

Customer Service:
Citadel Specialty Products is far from the biggest manufacturer of silicone release liners - and we are PROUD of it! When you partner with us, you won't find unrealistically large minimums, outrageously long lead times, or folks that won't return a phone call or email. All pattern coated jobs are made to order and require a minimum purchase of a just a single master roll. If the pattern you need is one we already make, turn times are typically just 3 to 7 business days, and if you're in a terrible jam, we'll do better than that! If your pattern is unique, the lead time may increase by an additional 3 to 5 business days. All of our managers are engineers and are happy to talk to you about any details of your order or ideas for new products.

Release Levels:
We offer two standard release levels or can custom formulate one that works for your particular requirements.

  • Standard Release (SR) : 10 - 45 grams per inch
  • High Release (HR): 45 - 100 grams per inch

Basis Weights:
The base papers we use are built to caliper. Here's a look:

  • 2.2 mil (roughly 32#'s per 3,300 ft2 ream)
  • 2.6 mil (roughly 36#'s per 3,300 ft2 ream)
  • 3.3 mil (roughly 45#'s per 3,300 ft2 ream)
  • 5.0 mil (roughly 70#'s per 3,300 ft2 ream)

Applications:
Our liners are used in a wide variety of end products. Many of our customers are printers and converters of integrated labels (form/label combinations). They are used in the production of shipping/receiving documents, pharmacy prescription labels, and just about any other label application you can think of. They are specifically engineered to have great layflat properties, making them ideal to be used in laser printer applications. The backside of our liners are compatible to receive flexo and offset printing as well as laser toner and ink-jet inks. Again, the liners are built to caliper and provide a great surface for die cutting.
