We all know that image is important and that a good presentation is the first step to success. It's also not new to say that aesthetics play a particularly relevant role in beauty, or that design or innovation are fundamental in this sector; or that premium finishes are still one of the most well valued by consumers.

However,  sustainability must be added to these established topics. This commitment to sustainability is gaining followers in the sector day by day but there is always much more to do.

Virospack is in a good position to respond to the strong market demand in recent years for high-quality metallized finishes for cosmetics since they have already incorporated this section into production a long time ago. Over the years, Virospack has repeatedly increased and renewed this section to achieve the capacity and quality it offers today.

Currently in Virospack's metallization section there are two automatic metallization lines with a production capacity of 40 million pieces per year.

Investing in state-of-the-art machinery and the continuous improvement in our processes and products, new Sputtering line was recently incorporated to this section that provides greater technical benefits during the process.

The new Sputtering line was specially designed for Virospack, customized based on production needs and to achieve the quality metallized finish that our customers demand.

The new Sputtering line allows Virospack to make coatings with a "metallic effect" that features both high abrasion resistance and high chemical resistance. In addition to these characteristics of hardness and abrasion resistance, it also allows a greater variety of decorations when applied on the surface of high-quality consumer goods.

High vacuum sputtering is the cleanest of all coating techniques, it brings an unparalleled combination of advantages.

One significant advantage is that high vacuum sputtering is a more sustainable and economically efficient production method that generates the most subtle and uniform coating possible.

The new Sputtering line also reduces waste generation, thereby reducing Virospack´s impact on the environment.

This is a dry and low temperature process that forms an indestructible relationship between film and substrate - it welds them at the molecular level.
