14 Jul 2016 Cut the Cost of Release Paper by up to 50%

It's the most sustainable release paper in the world, cheaper than virgin, of superior quality, available faster and in small quantities.....Why aren’t you using it?

Silicone release papers are used on any self adhesive printed product such as a label, signs, stickers, graphic overlays and point of sale products. If a product or process is sticky, it will need a silicone release paper. This paper can be expensive particularly if used in small quantities and with the falling value of sterling costs are likely to increase still further.

Now award winning UK manufacturer Techlan Ltd, (*see below) offers an attractive alternative. A low cost, high quality, silicone release paper that is the most sustainable in the world.

Techlan’s innovative technology has taken 5 years to develop and enables it to manufacture a 100% recycled silicone release paper, that retains the base paper and release characteristics of virgin paper – but at a far lower price.

Companies assume that to reduce costs they have to introduce a lower grammage paper. This is not the case. Current virgin paper can be replaced with a product that is cheaper and of a higher quality. Techlan customers enjoy a combination of lower purchase costs together with a higher quality product.

Director Mark Thompson explains;” We initially ran trials with a printing company that was printing self adhesive labels for a machinery manufacturer. The company was printing onto a plastic film and then screen printing an adhesive onto the back, before applying a 70gsm silicone release paper to the adhesive. The labels were then die cut and shipped to the customer.

Techlan was able to supply a lower cost release paper that was bright white and 100gsm. Not only did the printer reduce its costs, but they also improved the overall appearance of their sticky label. Their customer was delighted too as their product not only looked and felt better, but it also added sustainability into the supply chain and reduced their environmental impact”.

Mark has noted too that “we are increasingly receiving calls from companies that are having their production disrupted by release paper suppliers extending their lead times and increasing their minimum order quantity. Perhaps a company may only use a silicone release paper once or twice a year for sporadic orders. When they try to source a release paper they find it difficult to locate or have to wait weeks or even months for their delivery. It forces them to overstock on their release paper to ensure they have it ready for use. This has a detrimental impact on cash flow, stocking costs, and storage space.”

Techlan helps companies avoid these issues. Stock items are available for immediate dispatch and there are very short lead times on papers converted to customer specific widths/lengths in reel or sheet format.

The minimum order quantity for sheets is only 1 ream (250 sheets), or it can be supplied bulk packed 8,000 sheets on a pallet, both delivered within a couple of days. The minimum order quantity for reels is only 10 square metres.

And there is no risk switching to Techlan. Companies are confident that the paper is suitable as Techlan offers free trials. It means they can test it internally and send the finished product to their customers to make sure everyone is happy before introducing it as a replacement.

Techlan products are approved by blue chip organizations in the UK and its products are now supplied to several EU countries.

Techlan has recently become a member of FESPA .
