New Grip-Tight Textured Printing Enhances Bottles

August 6, 2007

The latest silk screen printing technology developed by Silgan Plastics can print a textured grip area anywhere on a bottle, applying it either over existing inks or directly on the bottle itself. Makers of bottled products intended for use in the shower, at the beach or in other high-moisture environments can now cost-effectively offer consumers the added value of secure handling while continuing to use their existing bottles. The new technology is applicable to both PET and HDPE bottles and is applied using conventional silk printing screens. More info: www.silganplastics.com.
