The beginning

Casting release paper was created in the 1940s in the Unites States, but it will take two major developments and another 30 years before we arrive at current scene.

In fact, it was the worldwide spread of PVC coatings in the 1960s and the introduction of polyurethanes (PU) in the 70s to bring the coating field and consequently Release papers to their final development.

Favini’s role

Italy played a vital role in the development of release papers thanks to a forward-thinking team of people here in our Crusinallo factory. In the 1960s they foresaw the big potential of release papers and worked to their vision with passion.

They create from scratch a company division that over time gained international credibility in the coating field thanks to the excellent quality of its release paper.

With over 150 years of experience in paper manufacturing and over 50 years of expertise in casting release, Favini is proud to say that its products are today a real point of reference among coating producers worldwide.
