Glass: Wheaton innovates with new decorative solutions

For its second participation in Luxe Pack Monaco, the Brazilian glassmaker presented a series of innovative solutions for the decoration of premium glass bottles.

For a guaranteed "wow" effect, Wheaton showcased Photochromic Spray, a new coating with an ink that reacts under the UV light. It is therefore possible to write on the bottle with a special light pencil. A way to create interaction between packaging and consumers as well as new possibilities for personalization.

Another innovation from the Brazilian glassmaker, the Perfumed Screen, a screen printing involving perfumed ink to turn packaging into an olfactory communication carrier. It is therefore possible to imagine getting rid of testers and samples, since the bottle enables to discover the product!

Wheaton is one of the world’s five biggest glass packaging manufacturers and the biggest one in Brazil with a special knowledge in packaging production for perfumery, cosmetics, pharmaceutics, food and housewares.
