Opticoat® solution to mask scuffing rings

Beverage manufacturers need a solution to keep returnable glass packaging looking new, even after many cycles of filling and shipping to customers. Brand image depends on having a bottle look clean and free of scuffing or cracking.

To help the bottle survive the returnable life-cycle, Arkema developed the Opticoat® technology. Opticoat® masking coatings are designed to:

  • Mask scuffing rings and help bottles appaer "new" by providing a nice and shiny look and feel
  • Offer competitive advantage over uncoated bottles
  • Function well on dry or cold and wet bottle surfaces > Opticoat® 140/150
  • Survive harsh storage and transport conditions
