paints for container glass

The considerable experience of ICA Group's Research & Development laboratories in the formulation of water-based coating products has led to the creation of a specific range for container glass painting.

The paints in the range have been specially developed to meet the requirements of the homeware, perfume and food & beverage sectors, with excellent technical properties in terms of hardness, chemical resistance, transparency and industrial workability.

ICA Group’s organic water-based paints for container glass also offer outstanding performance along with benefits in terms of aesthetics and ease of application. They can be used for spraying application with an electrostatic turbodisc or rotary bell.

Our latest shades for container glass.

BALANCE is a collection of colors specifically designed for glass packaging. It was created to embody an important aspect of our corporate ethos - respect and relentless attention to the world that surrounds us.
This is what gave rise to the BALANCE chromatic garden where senses interact with a series of visual and tactile effects. A sheer or matt look and intensity of color can make a huge difference to the aesthetic impact of an object.
Through color, we promote respect for the planet and our environment, seeking out the balance and harmony that stem from the values and vision obtained through ongoing research.
16 shades that blend subtly into each other, delighting the senses and enchanting the eye: from a high-opacity to an ultra-clear effect and from a matt to a glossy one enhanced by a tactile surface. 96 shades which take their cues from the glory of nature and the warmth of the earth; from flowers and the sky which bring a sense of balance and resonate with us on an emotional level.
