A release liner is a type of paper or film sheet that carries sticky materials in its base. It is coated by the silicon layer on both the side as base release coating, which offers the liner to release the adhesive at the right time. However, it can also be achieved with non-silicon coating or with a specific substrate that does not require coatings. Some of the major application areas of release liners are envelopes & packaging, industrial, medical, hygiene, pressure-sensitive label stock, and tapes. Moreover, release liners also find applications across the construction industry.
The global release liners market was estimated to account for US$ 11.6 billion in terms of revenue in 2018 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period (2019 to 2027).
