Infiana USA, Inc. supplies silicone-coated release film as well as non-siliconized, smooth and embossed films. The company invented and developed a nylon core, multi-layer material that met its customers’ requirements for a silicon-coated release film with a high degree of chemical resistivity, strength and temperature resistance. As a result, Infiana USA has captured substantial market share for this application in the building and construction market.

The product’s performance and reliability have been key to its success, says Robert Shumoski, president of Infiana USA: “Our customers’ roofing underlayment is applied to roofs by subcontractors — they make their money by efficiently applying the roofing underlayment and finally the roofing shingles. Any failing of the product impacts their profitability directly [and] the roofer will always purchase product that has performance reliability. If the release film peels off consistently with no tear, the user of the product can efficiently finish the current job and move on to the next. If [it] does not have a controlled release and the film tears during the application process, productivity, efficiency and ultimately profitability are adversely impacted.”
