The glass thermoplastic solution.
GLAS-LOK® is the Protech Group’s line of thermoplastic powder coatings developed specifically for the safety coating of glassware and ceramic products. GLAS-LOK® powders sur-round the substrate in a durable plastic coating therefore reducing the risk of glass and ceramics shattering upon impact. When a receptacle or light fixture coated with GLAS-LOK® does break, the contents remain locked within the durable plastic coating. This minimizes risk, reduces cleanup times and allows for proper disposal.
GLAS-LOK® powders are available in transparent colors. They are the ideal coating solution for many applications including florescent light bulbs, reagent bottles and high-end chandeliers.
How does it work?
GLAS-LOK® is formulated as a functionalized polyethylene copolymer that specializes in glass adhesion, to improve mechanical resistance to fragile products. It can be applied by fluidized bed or electrostatic spray.
- Prevents the dispersion of glass upon impact.
- No primer or curing required provides major energy savings.
- No plasticizers or phthalates.
- Ideal coating solution for a glass and ceramic products.
- Environmentally friendly.
