Paper or film, with a silicone realese coating, carrying the adhesive face material; also called the liner.
Refers to the carrier sheet (liner) of material in a pressure sensitive lamination as opposed to the face material. Typically having a release coating applied enabling the adhesive to be removed easily.
A coating that is applied/sprayed onto the back of fabric to prevent seam slippage and excess wear.
The flexible material to which abrasive grain is adhered to make coated abrasives and similar products. Typical backing materials are cloth/fabric, polyester film or paper. Other materials include sponges, rubbers, and foam.
This is sometimes referred to as the release liner. It is the component of the construction which functions as the carrier for pressure-sensitive adhesive.
the material used as the base or foundation for the abrasive grain to adhere to.
A substance affixed to the verso of the map, using a variety of adhesives, with the purpose of strengthening or flattening the maps. It is noted that some maps, particularly sea charts, were issued on a double paper; this is their normal condition.
a layer or liner of material on the underside of a sheeted product to provide mechanical reinforcement.
the plaster or render undercoats applied to a background. Also called render coat, floating coat or scratch coat.
A relatively thin flexible material to which a pressure-sensitive adhesive is applied.
A material or coating used on the back of a textile to reduce fraying, slipping and raveling. Also helps the textile keep its shape. Top page Blends A mix of different fiber types combined to create a yarn or fabric.
Anti-halation Backing: A temporary, dark-colored, gelatin coating which is sometimes applied to the rear side of a photographic plate or film to reduce halation by absorbing any light that may pass through the emulsion. Non-Curl Backing: A transparent, gelatin coating, sometimes applied to the opposite side of a photographic film from the emulsion to prevent curling by balancing the forces that tend to curl the film as it is wet and dried during processing.
relatively thin flexible material to which the adhesive is applied . Theoretically, any material, which is reasonably flat, relatively thin and flexible could be used as a tape backing.
Silicon release liner on media to which labels are attached until ready for use.
Refers to the carrier sheet of material in a pressure sensitive lamination as opposed to the face material. Usually has a release coating applied so that the adhesive will not stick too tightly to it. Release liner, backing paper, carrier, etc.
A flexible or semi-rigid material to which abrasive grain is bonded by adhesive. Paper, cloth, fiber, polyester and combination are the major backings used for coated abrasives.
The dark coating, normally on the back of a film, but sometimes between emulsion and the base, to reduce halation. The backing dye disappears during the processing.
An inexact term used in the pressure-sensitive adhesive industry. When referencing double-coated tapes and single coated products, it is the release liner. When referencing self-wound tapes, it is the material to which the adhesive is bonded.
To some it means the protective liner that covers the adhesive on double-coated tapes. To others it means the substrate that the tape itself is made from.
