'Framework programs' (FPs) have been the main financial tools through which the European Union supports research and development activities covering almost all scientific disciplines. In this respect, the ‘7th Framework (FP7)’, which covers the 2007-2013 periods, has been designed to coordinate research activities throughout Europe, encourage multinational cooperation between research networks, promote researcher mobility, and support the development of research infrastructures.

‘OneCoat’ is one of the featured FP7 projects, which aims for the ‘Development of a Polymer Strengthening Coating System for Glass Containers’. ULTRAKİM became one of the participants of the ‘OneCoat’ project following the signature of a ‘Consortium Agreement’ with other European companies who have taken part.

The scope of ‘OneCoat’ team is to develop a coating material and application technology for glass containers based on polysiloxane polymeric water emulsion that provides higher overall strength and scratch resistance to the treated containers while ensuring good and varied decorative properties.

‘OneCoat’ Scientific and technological objectives;

  • Synthesis of an organically modified polysiloxane
  • Study of the properties of the formulated polysiloxane
  • Preparation of a water emulsion from the polysiloxane
  • Study of the influence of pigments on mechanical and optical properties
  • Improvement of overall strength, internal burst pressure and resistance to scratching and scuffing
  • Adaptation to the market’s economic requirements
  • Compatibilization of pigments for coloring application by spraying and drying of water emulsion
