Liquiglide is the first viable technology that allows viscous liquids to slide effortlessly.
LiquiGlide’s permanently wet surfaces eliminate the “no-slip” boundary condition that causes viscous liquids to stick to solids. Invented at MIT, LiquiGlide’s patented technology platform is built on a fundamental model of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. LiquiGlide’s coatings are custom designed to be hyper slippery and permanently wet, using materials that are safe for each specific application. These coatings are also self-healing, such that the liquid will naturally fill and cover any scratches that are made in the surface. LiquiGlide® has a strong international IP footprint with 6 granted US patents and over 150 patent applications pending around the world.
