Ecology Coatings and Write-On-It! Introduce Write-on-Metals Technology
(Nanowerk News) Ecology Coatings, Inc. (OTCBB: ECOC), a leader in the discovery and development of ultra-violet curable, cleantechnology advanced materials, and Write-On-It! LLC, a pioneer in the write-on-metals technologies, today announced the joint development of product applications designed to facilitate identification of metal products.
Ecology Coatings' proprietary UV curable coatings have excellent adhesion to metal surfaces and the coated area can be written on with pencil, ink or markers. Using a permanent marker creates a long lasting means of identification of metal objects such as keys, wrenches, hand tools, or objects requiring secure identification of components or quality traceability.
Brian Moore, Co-Founder and Co-Inventor of Write-On-It, said, "We have found a number of useful applications for the write-on-metals technologies and are currently in development with key manufacturers. Ecology Coatings' UV coatings are simple to incorporate in most product manufacturing processes. Their products have virtually no emissions and require very low energy usage, contributing to greener manufacturing. In addition, the process is very fast and requires minimal space. All of these factors contribute to a very favorable competitive economic model."
Richard D. Stromback, Ecology's Chairman and CEO commented, "We are pleased to provide the Liquid Nanotechnology™ coatings that enable durable, writeable surfaces on metal products. Our EcoQuik™ UV-curable products have substantial user advantages in a wide variety of applications for metals, paper and plastic, in addition to the unique writability feature identified by Write-On-It.
