Coatings for returnable glass bottles

Fillers using returnable glass bottles always struggle with unattractive, scuffed bottles that reduce the lifespan of the container. To preserve the lifespan and appearance of returnable bottles, we have developed solutions to delay the formation of scuff rings and to mask those that have formed.

Thanks to these two solutions, returnable bottles are in use at least twice as long – 50 cycles instead of 25 – while keeping them attractive to consumers.


Comprehensive solutions

We are more than just a provider of chemicals. We are also a leading provider of equipment and technical services. Our equipment is developed based on unique technical partnerships to optimize line conditions and spraying operations.

Additionally, we offer an extensive service package, including lab support from our technical team, regular visits for audits and on-site service and support to help solve issues on the lines.

Our hot and cold-end coating brands including Certincoat® and Tegoglas® help the glass industry achieve:

  • High smoothness and dry filling scratch resistance
  • Highest taste quality of wine, oil, dairy, or food product
  • Durability during transportation and handling

Beverage industry

Arkema returnable bottle coating solutions are used in many sectors and especially in the beer industry, where 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 size and color isa big part of brand identity. Scuffing rings appear rapidly on non-protected bottles after the first few cycles.

Our returnable coating brands, Kercoat® and Opticoat® help the beverage industry achieve:

  • Higher filling speed
  • Excellent appearance
  • Reduced breakage
  • Improved safety.


For more than 50 years, Certincoat® technology has evolved to become the standard for the performance and reliable glass industry around the world. Many improvements have been made since the start of operations in 1975.
