New White Paper published in Glass Worldwide

The White Paper entitled “Effect of Coatings on adhesion of labels” was just published in the current issue of Glass Worldwide Magazine.
Hot end and cold end coatings are necessary to assure that non-refillable glass containers will move properly through high speed filling lines and to assure that the surface of these containers are adequately protected from becoming damaged during sliding contact. When these coatings are improperly applied, performance problems of the coated containers can be observed. One such problem is the lack of adhesion of paper labels when using common glues.

In this White Paper, Gary Smay summarizes the results of studies to determine the effect of tin oxide and polyethylene coatings on label adhesion when using casein-type glue. Visit our White Paper Library to read this "Effect of coatings on adhesions of labels" White Paper.
