Glazes & Polishes
For the shiniest, most attractive confections, our glazes are the best. Not only to they add gloss easily, but can impart other special effect ingredients for adding speckles, spots and other effects.
To prevent the migration of oils in chocolate, compound coatings and other fat-based applications, we have barriers that work well for panning and compliment our other Opaglos®, tablet core sealant product systems.
For jelly and gummy confections, try our oil-wax dispersions. Using food-grade oils and waxes, these formulations clean starch-molded confections and provide high-shine while alleviating stickiness.
Pearlicoat® Pearlescent Coating Systems
When elegance is your aim, we present Pearlicoat, pearlescent coating systems. Provided in different formulation types for your application, Pearlicoat increases the aesthetic value of your product without the addition of new equipment, in most cases. Complete coverage and speckled effects may also be achieved with Pearlicoat.
