CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LiquiGlide Inc. today announced that it will speak at the CoatingsTech Conference, taking place March 20-22, 2017, at the Westin Cleveland Downtown in Cleveland, Ohio. Hosted by the American Coatings Association, this year's conference will bring together all levels of coating professionals to discuss the sustainability challenges of today and tomorrow.
Co-founder and CEO Dave Smith is scheduled to present a session titled "The Science and Application of Liquid-Impregnated Surfaces for Slippery Coatings." He will review the fundamental concepts of liquid-impregnated surfaces (LIS) and its application in industrial manufacturing and consumer packaging. More detailed information on his session is as follows:
Date/Time: Tuesday, March 21, 2017, from 11-11:30 a.m. ET
Session Description: In this presentation, Smith will explore the thermodynamic design parameters necessary to engineer LIS coatings and create slippery surfaces. He will review LIS coatings for commercial applications in consumer package goods and manufacturing tanks, and comment on the recent launch of the LIS technology in the paint industry, where the technology is proven to significantly reduce yield loss, waste water and cleaning time in manufacturing tanks.
"The challenges created by viscous liquids are endless, including products sticking to consumer packaging and the manufacturing equipment those products are made in, such as tanks, blenders and reactors," said Smith. "Our breakthrough coating technology is based on the science of liquid-impregnated surfaces and eliminates these challenges by creating a custom-designed, permanently slippery surface that allows viscous liquids to slide easily and completely. By attending this session, attendees will walk away with the knowledge of how LIS technology works, how it is being used commercially, and better understand how it could potentially be implemented to dramatically reduce waste and costs for their companies."
