At Luxe Pack Monaco last October, Stoelzle Masnières has introduced its new water-based inner lacquering technique.
To ensure thorough coverage, accommodating the bottle’s specific volume and glass density, the inner lacquering coats the bottle’s interior. Since there is a direct contact with the liquid product inside, the glassmaker creates a unique formulation that prevents any risk of fragrance contamination, even with alcohol-containing products, eliminating the need for an internal pocket.
“The lacquer’s formulation is meticulously crafted by our in-house team, allowing for customization to meet specific customer requirements. Beyond being water-based, the lacquer is free from CMRs (carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to reproduction), SVHCs (substances of very high concern), and migrating pigments, ensuring product integrity. This commitment to quality aligns with Stoelzle’s eco-friendly principles and complies with California Proposition 65 safety standards,” says the company.
The inner lacquering solution provided by Stoelzle Masnières offers design versatility with a range of tones, from translucent to opaque. Ongoing research and development efforts aim to expand the colour palette further, ensuring precision in each shade. However, a dedicated development remains necessary for the development of specific shades.
“This technique seamlessly complements various bottle shapes and sizes, making it a versatile addition to glass bottle decoration. It harmonizes well with other decoration methods, such as screen printing, hot stamping, digital printing, and embossing, typically applied externally,” concludes Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie.
