Stoelzle Masnières unveils its new eco-friendly glass decoration process

At PCD Paris, Stoelzle Masnieres has showcased Quali Glass Coat 2.0 its new decoration process for glass perfumery and cosmetics bottles and jars. The new process concentrates innovation and sustainable development. Explanations.

Derived from a technique used in the automotive industry, this innovation required two years of additional developments and adjustments. It consists in a glue-free and solvent-free powder coating.

According to Stoelzle Masnières, the use of powder paint allows us to offer a broad palette of new decorative effects with a very low environmental impact and high mechanical resistance.

Among other advantages, this new process allows the development of new shades using thermo-lacquering technology. Despite some counter-typing constraints, Stoelzle Masnières has successfully tested numerous colours, including the most delicate ones.

Quali Glass Coat 2.0 allows the creation of a spectacular finishes with: perfect coverage of all surfaces, high resistance to shock and friction, a wide choice of colours and surface effects, chrome, pearlescent, glitter or shading effects on all or part of a bottle or jar, whether transparent or opaque. According to Stoelzle, the new technique is suitable for all over-decoration techniques for added personalization, including serigraphy.

Environmental benefits

Due to the zero amount of solvents and very small amount of volatile organic compounds involved in the whole decoration process, Quali Glass Coat 2.0 also offers dramatic ecological advantages. Furthermore, the recuperation and reintegration of exceeding material produced by over-spraying allows to eliminate both emissions and waste.

Eventually, the powders used in the application process are compliant with Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances (RoHS). These powders contain no lead, mercury, cadmium or chrome, in line with current European regulations.

This process thus constitutes an alternative to lacquering and vacuum metallization. The cost is almost equivalent to that of lacquering, while it may vary depending on the materials used, since the process can be used to spray all kinds of particles, including the most precious.

Our latest innovation, Quali Glass Coat, will allow sales director Nicolas Carron and his teams to accompany our customers ever further in their quest for creativity and the personalization of bottles and jars,” highlights Étienne Gruyez, managing director of Stoelzle Masnieres Parfumerie and Stoezle Masnieres Decoration.
