  • Certincoat®TC100 coating material,
  • precision metering pump assembly,
  • high efficiency coating hoods for all line speeds & glassware sizes,
  • regular technical support and in-person consultations by Arkema advisors.

 

Performance, high-reliability and efficiency

With the Certincoat® system, glass production lines can produce high-quality coated ware with less downtime.

Additional benefits include:

  • uniform and consistent coating,
  • excellent finish protection,
  • efficient use of Certincoat®TC100, with minimal waste,
  • coating efficiency not affected by humidity or ambient temperature fluctuations,
  • significant reduction in plant corrosion problems.

 

Coating hoods

 

Through years of development and glass operation, Arkema offers the most diverse, efficient and reliable portfolio of coating hoods on the market to meet your specifications.

 

Certincoat® T series: advanced technology for hot-end coating (Europe only)

The T-hood is designed to apply a tin oxide layer using a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process and to coat a wide range of glass containers at different production speeds.

The T-hood is used in the hot section, prior to cold-end coating application, to obtain highest performance of the complete system HEC-CEC.

The T-hood benefits from:

  • a loop system (inner and outer loop),
  • a combination of turbulent and laminar airflow,
  • a complete data monitoring.

All these elements are under patent.

Certincoat® XE series (AMAS only)

Arkema designed the XE Series Hood for optimal operational efficiency to drive customer cost savings. The Certincoat® XE series is the American next-generation hot-end coating hood that focuses on improved operational efficiency, resulting in less cleaning and reduced maintenance downtime. Based on extensive field-testing these upgrades have resulted in a decrease in cleaning time and frequency required. These cost savings per line is estimated to be at least $15,000 annually.

 

The XE Series hood features:

  • easier tunnel and door cleaning,
  • more efficient hood cooling,
  • better exhaust distribution,
  • ease of job-change adjustments,
  • direct feed and feed insert for optimal chemical usage (patent pending),
  • optional directed flow for higher coating requirements.

Cold-end coatings - Tegoglas® range

The Tegoglas® range is our Cold-End Coating products - CEC system - completing our offer for the container glass industry and covering a wide variety of applications.

  • less emissions,
  • less deposists in the hood,
  • less and easier cleaning,
  • less maintenance needed,
  • easy adjustement after job change.

 

 

 

Certin® Clear guarantees you higher efficiency and increased HEC homogeneity on your glass botlles.

Certin® Precise: accuracy in Cold-end coating application

It is a new way of cold-end coating with new spray and introduction of Certin® Topcoat 201 for higher precision of final coating. An application device designed to maximize your final coating result.

The spray cabinet

The spray cabinet applicator delivers Certin® Topcoat 201 where it matters, resulting in very high scratch resistance. The containers are coated from the side to avoid coating the inner surface of the bottle.

The spray cabinet helps to have:

  • less over-coating on the bottle shoulder,
  • uniform coating at the bottom of the bottle.

The most precise Cold-End Coating system:

 

  • Topcoat 201: right product at right bottle temperature around 70°C,
  • better application conditions and control,
  • precise coating on bottle to bottle contact areas,
  • no inside coating and no foaming,
  • easy to install,
  • improved label adhesion.

Technical support for glass coating containers

Our laboratory in Vlissingen, NL, can test Hot-end and Cold-end coatings on your bottles with the use of various techniques and instruments.

The laboratory is equipped with all tools necessary to analyze the container surface, like by mapping the hot-end & cold-end distribution we can check your application and together with our field service people help to optimize your coating application process.
