Our Products

Optical Release Liner

Optically clear film substrates with highly engineered coatings – ideal for applications where low-haze performance is essential.

Printed Circuit Board

FPCB manufacturing

Providing an easy release layer, our specialized coated fabrics ensure the lamination cycles of FPCB manufacturing occur without defects. This means that there is no defect transfer from our products to the FPCB laminate and no degradation during the high temperatures of the lamination process itself. They are also chemically inert and reusable across multiple cycles to reduce consumable-manufacturing costs.
