Beverage industry

Glass coating in beverage industry


Our returnable glass bottles solutions address to the filling industry. In many sectors and especially in the beer industry, the use of returnable glass bottles is common. Major players have chosen this reusable packaging for economic and environmental reasons. Indeed, bottles are used as a marketing tool as each bottle makes think to a specific brand and to a particular image as well. Bottle sizes and colours are a big part of marketing and bottle appearance has fully its significance for final consumers. No matter the bottle, scuffing rings appear rapidly on non-protected bottles after first couple of cycles.




Our brands help the beverage industry achieve:

  • higher filling speed,
  • excellent appearance,
  • reduced breakage,
  • improved safety.
