LiquiGlide® reduces waste, increases dosage accuracy, improves rinsing, and differentiates agrochemical products.
LiquiGlide’s coatings for agrochemical packaging enable viscous insecticides, herbicides, and pesticides to completely evacuate from their packaging, reducing product waste, improving product efficacy through more accurate dosage, and simplifying the cleaning process.
LiquiGlide® improves the users’ ability to safely and accurately measure product dosage. With LiquiGlide®, the measuring cup portion of Tip ‘n’ Pour containers will no longer have dried-on product from previous applications, providing a clear and accurate view of the measuring line. When the product is evacuated, LiquiGlide® ensures that the complete measured dose is dispensed, leaving no residue behind.
Accurate application is essential to ensure product effectiveness. Non-compliance with accurate measurement of agrochemicals can lead to regulatory risk and statutory fines.
LiquiGlide® enables easy and complete evacuation of insecticides, pesticides and herbicides. For the user, this reduces expensive product waste and ensures better effectiveness of their agrochemical products. For multi-use containers, this can even mean that consumers will get additional doses out of each package, resulting in more finished product.
LiquiGlide® reduces the time and effort necessary to triple-rinse agrochemical packaging. This will have a positive environmental impact as it reduces the amount of water and rinsate necessary to clean packaging prior to disposal.
LiquiGlide’s patent-protected technology is difficult to reproduce, providing a differentiated and authentic package to any brand that licenses our technology.
This is particularly important as an anti-counterfeiting measure in many markets where counterfeit products are a serious concern. In Europe, 7-10% of agrochemicals are counterfeit and in China and India, it is reported that between 20-30% of agrochemicals are counterfeit. This represents millions of dollars of lost sales. LiquiGlide® can help combat this issue by providing a authenticating feature that cannot be replicated.
Invented in the Varanasi Lab at MIT, LiquiGlide® is the only permanently wet slippery surface. No other durable solution makes viscous liquids slide easily.
