Inks for three-piece Food, Aerosol and General Line cans: For both thermal and UV curing, PPG can supply inks for offset lithography printing on three-piece food and general line packaging.
Aerosols are used to package a broad range of products, from food, pharmaceuticals to toiletries. For these applications, PPG provides interior protective and exterior base and top coatings.External coatings are decorative and protective, while also offering an advertising area to develop your customers' brand. We dedicate great efforts to the development of coatings and printing inks in order to provide an extraordinary optical effect by the brilliance, brightness, and stability of the formulated pigments. The external coatings meet the technical requirements in terms of flexibility and resistance to abrasion, thus assuring that no alteration occurs during processing, storage, and transportation.
As new technologies are introduced for this important segment of the packaging industry, PPG will continue to provide coatings that allow manufacturers to produce the highest quality packages with distinctive aesthetics to enable their customers to achieve marketplace distinction.
Sizeless white base coat and varnish systems afford ease of application and reduced cost and labor, while achieving the protection and attractive aesthetics so important in the cosmetic industry.
A two-coat cone and dome system eliminates the need for a size coat by achieving maximum coverage and protection with a unique white base coat and clear overcoat.
Exterior base coats provide superior, uniform metal coverage, adhesion and ink receptivity. White and pearlescent polyester-based coatings are available in high-solids, thermal bake formulations.
Polyester-alkyd high solids and UV acrylate varnish top coats add an attractive clear gloss finish, with good adhesion to the inks and base coat, while protecting the decorated can against abrasion.
Custom finishes provide suede-like or matte-textured aesthetics for unique feel and appearance.
PPG's interior coating technology has been an industry benchmark for decades. These coatings protect against reaction between the metal and chemically aggressive contents. In terms of protective lacquers, for monobloc we offer polyamide-imide-systems and high resistance powder liners.
For metal tubes, white base coat formulations are available in polyester and polyurethane bases, with epoxy-phenolic and polyamide-imide top coats.
