LiquiGlide: Coating helps paint slip out of can
Designed to benefit consumers and manufacturers, LiquiGlide’s super-slippery coating for paint and paint colorants is a permanently wet coating that allows paint to slide out of cans and through pipes with ease, minimizing waste, reducing harmful environmental impact, and improving production efficiency.
The coating allows easy and complete evacuation of paint. As a result, consumers get all the paint they pay for, reducing waste and significantly improving quality as paint no longer dries on container lids and contaminate fresh paint. For paint manufacturers, LiquiGlide improves energy efficiency and reduces paint build-up on equipment, cutting downtime and cleaning costs. LiquiGlide’s coating can also reduce the amount of paint that reaches landfills and incinerators from both consumers and manufacturers.
LiquiGlide contains no VOCs and has no impact on paint performance. It withstands rigorous paint shaking, stirring, and transportation, and has a shelf life of more than 16 months.
Also suitable for the oil and gas, packaging, and high-tech medical equipment industries, LiquiGlide’s coatings allow viscous liquids to move easily, and are customized for specific applications and products. Results may vary depending on chemistry, substrate, and product conditions.
The completely odorless LiquiGlide can be applied using a spray-on process and has no effect on paint container recycling.
