Today, world wide most of the container industry uses MBTC (Mono butyl tin tri chloride). MBTC was introduced in the late seventies and replaced tin tetra chloride and to a lesser extend, titanium tetra chloride. It was rather quickly replacing both conventional chemicals, because of its easier handling, combined with a much lower consumption.
The cold-end coating applied on the tin oxide creates the surface lubricity and gloss of the final glass container. Imacoat CE 50 is a micro dispersed aqueous solution and offers the industry a universal formulation in a concentrated form which needs to be diluted in a ratio of app. 1:100 with water before use.
Imaca BV has a complete range of lubricants from shear to mould. For each application we can compose the most suitable lubricant.
