An environmentally friendly technology that replaces varnishing for luxury packaging

SpecialChem / Dec 28, 2009

The French cosmetic packaging specialist RPC Beauté Marolles has launched an innovative decoration technology under the trade name EcoCoat™. This new process is said to provide an environmentally-friendly alternative to varnishing through a creative use of overmolding for luxury packaging. Moreover it offers a premium appearance, high gloss and an effective aid in the fight against counterfeiting. It is based on the overmolding of a thin coat (i.e. a few tenths of a millimeter) of transparent polymer on the top of a thermoplastic component. The thin coating can be specified in a number of styles, including clear, tinted, or incorporating metallic or pearlescent pigments. This offers great design flexibility in combination with the variety of classical treatments that can be applied to the substrate. EcoCoat™ can also be applied over any standard decoration technique.
