LiquiGlide Coating Eliminates Paint Sticking in Cans
LiquiGlide said it has produced the worldâs first commercially viable super-slippery coating for paint and paint colorants. The permanently wet coating prevents paint products from sticking to cans and manufacturing equipment.
LiquiGlideâs paint coating allows for easy and complete evacuation, reducing waste. For paint manufacturers, the company said it mproves energy efficiency and reduces paint build-up on equipment, cutting downtime and cleaning costs. LiquiGlideâs coating can also reduce the amount of paint that reaches landfills and incinerators from both consumers and manufacturers.
LiquiGlideâs coating for paint and paint colorants was tested with more than 30 unique paint formulations and colors. The primary coating research included testing water-based paints and colorants on coated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) surfaces.
The company said its coatings are customized for specific applications and products. Results may vary depending on chemistry, substrate and product conditions. LiquiGlide is actively partnering to release the paint coating for testing and validation with paint manufacturersâ specific products.
