Hyper-slick Coating


The brand new modern coating is so slick that the majority the
ketchup on this bottle slides to the underside leaving the
surfaces clear.

So I’m sitting at dinner attempting to get the final of the ketchup
out of the bottle pictured right here once I seen that nearly none
of the ketchup was left caught to the within of the container.
The plastic was virtually completely clear. Then I remembered
studying in regards to the new expertise that was chargeable for this.

The main firm behind the expertise is LiquiGlide. The
web site is www.liquiglide.com in case you are
all for studying extra about it and watching some movies of
quite a few merchandise this expertise works with – truly virtually
all liquids and gels, together with paints, finishes and glues.

The expertise was invented a number of years in the past at MIT, adopted
by the LiquiGlide startup to promote it. The expertise is a
little arduous to explain. Right here’s how Mark Daly on the firm
explains it:

“It’s a floor coating that’s utilized to containers (or different
surfaces) made up of two layers – a textured strong and a liquid
that will get trapped into that strong to create a completely moist
layer that makes the paint slide.

“The strong and liquid are chosen to satisfy the wants of particular
viscous supplies – e.g., latex-based paint, oil-based paint,
and nearly any sticky substance – and it’s personalized.”

What an amazing innovation. Over time, we’ll save some huge cash
with the ability to use all the things within the container.
