Date: 10 April 2015

Drawing on some thirty years’ experience in bottle glass coating, Arkema’s Glass Coating Department teams have come to the realization that the sector’s players need to be better informed of the issue and challenges of a proper use of glass coating products.

Eager to share its expertise, Arkema organized the first webinar of its Web Academy on 24 March 2015.This session introduced the basic facts of the Hot End and Cold End Coating technologies. The webinar involved a presentation of some twenty minutes with commentary and explanations by our top technicians, followed by a Q&A session. It was a great success with connections from around the world.

This online training programme is open to anyone involved in the world of the glass container industry, namely glass manufacturers, bottlers, brewers, and the returnable glass industry. This first training session was part of Arkema’s Certin® T certification programme which aims to guarantee to the sector’s players an optimum standard of protection for their bottles. Upcoming sessions of the Web Academy will soon be open for registration.

Do sign up on line without delay or contact our local representatives if you require further information.
