Stora Enso launches new LumiSil LO release liner grade directly targeting glassine replacement
Press release from the issuing company
STEVENS POINT, Wisconsin, USA, April 4, 2007 – Stora Enso Speciality Papers will launch a new grade of LumiSil LO as a direct competitive replacement for glassine release liner paper, at Label Summit Latin America, May 15-16, 2007, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This new LumiSil LO grade, offered at a 58 gsm basis weight and a 53 micron caliper, is designed for label converters in Latin America, Europe and Asia that use glassine to make die-cut, pressure-sensitive roll labels with paper and film face stocks.
LumiSil LO features a smooth, glossy surface for uniform silicone coverage and excellent continuity at lower silicone coat weights. Engineered for silicone holdout, LumiSil LO is compatible with solvent, solventless, radiation-cured or emulsion silicone coatings.
“The introduction of 58 gsm LumiSil LO represents a new standard for release liner paper innovation, performance and value,” said Ed Buehler, vice president of technical papers. “Pressure-sensitive label converters around the world now have available an excellent alternative to glassine liner, backed by Stora Enso’s leading customer service, product delivery and environmental sustainability practices.”
