Bluestar Silicones introduces latest generation of ’ SILCOLEASE®

Bluestar silicones will introduce the latest additions to its SILCOLEASE® Optima Concept product family at Labelexpo Europe Brussels from September 28th to October 1st.



The Optima Concept is the SILCOLEASE® way to tackle all issues of cost, profitability or productivity linked with label & release liner manufacture. Existing SILCOLEASE® range products can be combined with new Optima components to meet the following challenges:

 Pt reduction
 Low temperature cure (LTC)
 Fast running speeds – fast cure & low misting


The Optima concept is a means to optimise release liner production through fine tuning of the coating formulation by changing components or, where appropriate, introduction of a complete new system.  Developed over the past two years and tested at full industrial scale the latest Optima II products achieve performance across a wider range of substrates and machine conditions.  When asked about the specific benefits offered by the new Optima II range Global Market Manager Sean Duffy said “The versatility of these new products allows us to target a new level of running and cost efficiency for our customers.  Whether remaining best in class for Pt reduction or achieving high running speeds the Optima range has the formulation adapted to industry needs.  We have been particularly careful in the development of this new range to ensure that all applications and substrates are covered and our target is to move the entire industry standards to the next level of performance.”
