RECAP: GlassPrint 2019
Ferro, a supporter of GlassPrint since its inception in 2005, was once again excited to take part in this unique European event dedicated to glass decoration. It was an excellent opportunity to see the latest trends and developments for decorating glass and for networking with glass manufacturers, decorators, brand owners, OEMs and other suppliers from 24 countries.
Ferro joined more than 30 companies in the table-top exhibition hall, where we showed our latest developments in organic coatings and lead-free glass enamels for decorating flat and hollow glass. Our new organic color options for thermoplastic and UV-curing application proved to be of considerable interest.
Also featured were the latest novel organic colors and coatings developed by our recent acquisitions, Pinturas Benicarlo, based in Spain and Diegel, headquartered in Germany.
SEE GLASS BEAUTY AND FUNCTIONALITY COMBINED
The direct decoration on glass Ferro inks and coatings provide a superior look compared to traditional paper labels. Well-known vodka and beer producers are already using them to differentiate their brand. And gin producers and other brands are quickly following suit.
Whatever your market needs – bottles, tumblers or cosmetic flacons – Ferro has the right color solution for you.
Ferro’s technical experts were on-hand to walk delegates through the various opportunities our colors offer.
Additionally, Alexandra Cordes, our European Container Glass Technical Services Manager delivered a paper at the conference titled “Adding Value for Hollow Glass Decoration”.
Summarizing Ferro’s impact on the event, Cordes commented: “Through direct decoration of Ferro materials on glass packaging, major global drinks brands can differentiate their products and provide stand-out shelf appeal. To this end, GlassPrint provided us with a wonderful showcase to present our latest developments, and was a good networking opportunity for us, with important companies from the whole value chain for glass decoration in attendance.”
