This glass-coating system is now enhanced for cost savings
The next-generation Certincoat hot-end coating system applies a uniform layer of tin oxide to the surface of glass containers just after they emerge from the bottle-forming equipment. The tin oxide provides a good surface for the adhesion of cold-end coating. This combination of coatings increases scratch resistance, improves lubricity, reduces breakage, allows faster filling times and enhances a bottle’s appearance. The new XE Series hot-end coating system hood includes patent-pending innovations to enhance efficiency and cut costs, says the company. — Arkema, King of Prussia, Pa.
