LiquiGlide – This new non-stick coating will revolutionize packaging

2015-07-02 // gadget tech

Here is the LiquiGlide, a new non-stick coating, super-hydrophobic (water repellent) and oleophobic (oil-repellent), which could revolutionize the packaging of many food products such as ketchup or sauces, toothpaste, shampoo and so on, but also non-food like painting for example. The LiquiGlide was developed by a team at the MIT led by Kripa Varanasi and David Smith, who are now looking to market it. If you like the principle of the super-hydrophobicity, I would also recommend you the Superhydrophobic Street Art or the videos Playing with super-hydrophobia I and Playing with super-hydrophobia II.
