Traditional metallized coatings often utilize non-recyclable materials and harmful substances, raising environmental concerns. Addressing this issue, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES has successfully produced metallized finishes on PET plastic that have passed key recyclability tests, including metal detection and NIR resin identification. These tests were conducted by certified test facilities of the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR).

Compared to conventional metallizing processes, the new coatings from SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES offer significant eco-friendly advantages:

  • Resin-based spray primers and topcoats can be avoided on various substrates, including PET, SAN, and glass.
  • Applying the coatings requires less energy, resulting in over 70% reduction and cost savings.
  • The processes emit zero VOCs, eliminating the need for EPA reporting.
  • Eco-friendly, low-energy lasers can be utilized to create a wide range of print decorations.
