Under a recently signed agreement, Arkema will provide SABMiller with glass coating products and technology designed to protect and improve the appearance of SABMiller’s reusable glass bottles.

The technology is based on Tegoglas® 3000+, an anti-scuff coating that delays the appearance of scuffing and protects the strength of a returnable glass bottle, therefore significantly extending the life of a returnable glass bottle. The coating also can improve the production flow, reduce the noise level and enhance the efficiency of the filling plant operations. The praxis has shown a scuffing reduction of approximately 50%. A new breakthrough - Post Washer Spray Application Technology, developed by Arkema in collaboration with Spraying Systems Co.® - reportedly enables beer and soft drink fillers to protect their fleet at the earliest possible position and guarantees an excellent coating distribution.

The technology has been used successfully in South Africa and will be implemented in key SABMiller breweries.
