Sustainable paints

The glass range is made up from mono and bicomponent paints (transparent and pigmented) which, with their low levels of volatile organic compounds, are fully compliant with regulatory restrictions on solvent emissions into the atmosphere.

To verify the resistance of ICA paints on certain types of hollow glass, various chemical and mechanical stress tests are conducted based on the standard specifications for the homeware and profumery market. In addition, container glass coated with ICA products successfully passed the dishwasher-safety and food-contact test.

Cold paints can be dried at room temperature (or in rapid-drying ovens), whereas the thermosetting paints can be dried in ovens at temperatures of up to 200°C for. After drying, the painted glass can be worked on directly, undergoing operations such as cutting, grinding, sealing and gluing.

ICA’s paints for container  glass are compatible with UV screen-printing and thermosetting inks, ensuring perfect adhesion and chemical/physical resistance.

The products are non-flammable, making them easy to store, and dilutable in water, so they are simple to prepare and use. Moreover, due to their low levels of volatile organic compounds, they allow for compliance with the regulations on the limitations of solvent emissions into the atmosphere.

ICA Group's range of high-quality coatings, which over the years has been geared more and more towards a reduction in environmental impact, has enabled the company to be recognized as one of the most technologically advanced players in the market, both in Italy and internationally.
