HYDROCOS WATERBORNE ORGANIC COATINGS
Ferro’s Hydrocos high-quality water borne coatings are formulated for color decoration of packaging glass that meets the special requirements of the cosmetic industry. Free of heavy metals, Hydrocos offers many metallic colors and effects that create limitless color ranges and options.
The Hydrocos line of organic water-based coatings offers heavy metal-free glass decoration used for glass cosmetics packaging. Its good mechanical properties combined with an additional resistance to a large number of fillings provides a high assurance of safe handling during filling and transportation.
Our basic color system includes all Pantone® color shades and are mixable in any ratio, enabling our customers to achieve any desired color shade. The easy handling of basic lacquers and color concentrates allows producing a variety of colors, with different gloss levels in a fast, easy and economical manner.
Ferro can also produce custom colors based on customer specifications or from the common color charts. Sample shades can also be produced in short runs, and further custom color shades according to color charts or color systems can also be mixed.

Ferro glass coatings show considerable advantages over pigmented or etched glass:
- All Ferro waterborne glass coatings are free of heavy metals
- By varnishing the prefabricated glass object, the coloring is uncoupled completely from glass production, enabling the smallest lots can be produced economically
- A short lead time for spray-painting significantly reduces the warehousing risk for finished products, allowing for quick-turnaround requests
