About Release Liners
A release liner is made of paper or plastic and functions as a carrier for pressure-sensitive label stock. It has special non-stick coatings on one or both ends. It is coated with a releasing agent on one or both sides, which prevents it from bonding with the material. Release liners protect the adhesive prior to its initial application. Release liners come in different forms, including paper and plastic films, and can be printed or non-printed. Primarily, release liners are made from glassine or super calendered kraft paper.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Release Liners market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 3.34 percent over the period 2014-2019.
