Get the scoop on Smart Liners
The lowly liner can actually be one of the ways a manufacturer can reduce cost - by carefully matching release properties with the variety of liner configurations, we can ultimately speed assembly and reduce waste.
We've taken some time to share our insights gained from years of converting liners in a variety of industries. This guide is designed to highlight the attributes you'll want to consider for your project.
Release Liners play a supporting role in manufacturing assembly
Don't get stuck with the wrong liner solution. "Smart Liners" play a role from multiple angles - not just adhesive delivery.
At Gleicher, we've found that by thinking through the final assembly process well in advance, we can produce a variety of attributes to ensure the liner is:
- matched to the adhesive
- designed for the application
- configured for the assembly process
Gleicher can help you source 3M™ Release Liners. They are available in a wide range of paper, poly-coated paper, polyester film and HDPE film substrates.
We love these high quality release liners, offered with silicone release coatings on either one side or both sides of the substrate. Polyester film release liners are also available with proprietary non-silicone release coatings.
