For more than 65 years, Elmer’s has been providing creative adhesive solutions that support success and turn ideas into reality. By continuing to develop innovative new products, Elmer’s has become the trusted brand when it comes to fueling creativity and providing outstanding product performance in the classroom, at home, in the workshop and at the craft table.

Consumer packaged goods (CPG) firms, like Elmer’s, competing in mature markets have increasingly turned to LiquiGlide as a source of product innovation, differentiation and growth. Fueled by this, LiquiGlide helps brands create better consumer experiences by providing them with environmentally friendly, custom coating solutions that allow sticky liquids to slide effortlessly.

“At Elmer’s, we’re not only focused on inspiring creativity, we’re focused on delivering an experience for our customers that’s environmentally and socially responsible,” said Joe Wetli, Director of Innovation and Business Development at Elmer’s Products, Inc. “Our partnership with the creative scientists at LiquiGlide will help us access new technologies that can provide differentiation across our product portfolio.”

LiquiGlide’s coatings are created by combining a textured solid with a liquid – chosen from hundreds of potential materials – resulting in a permanently wet slippery surface. The materials for LiquiGlide’s coatings include many FDA-approved materials, which comply with Elmer’s stringent standards for safety and quality.

“LiquiGlide will provide Elmer’s with a significant competitive advantage, while showcasing their commitment to product innovation and environmentally friendly best practices,” said LiquiGlide CEO and Co-Founder, Dave Smith. “Working with market-leading firms like Elmer’s continues to validate LiquiGlide’s technology and the value it brings across a broad spectrum of industries, including CPG.”

LiquiGlide Lays Legal Groundwork for Global Commercialization

LiquiGlide Inc. today announced it has initiated international patent filings to protect the intellectual property (IP) of its liquid-impregnated surface technology.

The international patent filing is directly related to United States Patent 8,574,704 – granted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by the U.S. Patent Office. MIT currently holds two patents for the slippery coating technology with more than a dozen pending, and LiquiGlide, Inc. is the sole commercial entity with exclusive licensing rights.

LiquiGlide Survey Reveals Just How Much Consumers Hate Waste

LiquiGlide Inc. today announced survey results that clearly demonstrate consumers’ intense dislike of product waste and the extreme measures many of them take to get the last few drops of everything from food items like peanut butter and mayo to health and beauty items like toothpaste and body lotion, including picking through garbage and even physically injuring themselves.
