24-06-2016 Alcea France – Progetto Europeo ALGLASS

ALGLASS is a new generation of advanced liquid coatings based on polytetrafluoroethylene which will increase the scratch resistance of glass containers by being applied in the cold-end stage of the manufacturing process. This new generation of coatings will allow for an easy labelling and high production speeds due to its improved slippering properties, and enable the use of the coating on containers intented to be in contact with food. The higher scratch resistance of our coating compared to current alternatives is expected to reduce by 10% the failure tax, saving € 114 million to our customers, glass containers manufacturers, and enabling them to increase their competitiveness over products coming from the Asia-Pacific market.
