REDUCING THE USE OF HEAVY METALS IN DECORATION PROCESSES
Since 2008, Saverglass has integrated a sustainable development approach into all its decoration and finishing techniques that it implements (solutions to increase the perceived value of the product, customize it and differentiate it). One particular service offered by the Group is the ORGANIC COLOR PLAY® process with its wide range of organic ink-based colors. This process does not use heavy metals during production, such as lead (Pb), hexavalent chromium (Cr6), cadmium (Cd), and mercury (Hg).
This is a highly efficient process that provides a vast diversity of tints and effects. Compared to screen printing, carried out using enamel and requiring hightemperature annealing, these new processes offer precise adjustment between colors and remarkably consistent printing.
Also, unlike enamel, the use of the ORGANIC COLOR PLAY® process reduces the energy consumption required for decoration and finishing techniques by 70%.
• 75% of decoration techniques by Saverglass now use organic inks.
• Note that 100% of the decoration produced is recyclable.
