  • Romill® is safe to handle as its flash point is 372°F.

Romill® Cold End Coating Application

Romill® lubricant is applied with a Vapor Hood Cold End Coating System to the newly formed glass containers as they emerge from the annealing lehr.

Advantages and History

What sets Romill® Cold End Coating off from the other products? Romill® Cold End Coating is produced from the original formula created by Ball Corporation in Muncie, Indiana. Robert Miller upon retirement from Ball Corporation’s Research and Development worked with me for twenty years sharing his vast experience with the development of the Vapor Hood Coating System and the Cold End Coating. This product was named in his honor. Nashville Supply has also processed this product for other vendors for the last ten years as well as manufactured the Vapor Hood Cold End Coating System.
