Ecology Coatings Develops Bio-Based Materials for UV-Curable Coating Applications

Published on February 23, 2010 at 2:09 AM

Ecology Coatings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ECOC), a leader in the discovery and development of nanotechnology-enabled, ultraviolet-curable advanced coatings, today announced it has developed bio-based materials for use in a new family of EcoQuik UV-curable coatings.

Products incorporating bio-based additives are being used in commercial development applications that exhibit enhanced curing speed, pigment coverage and useful surface effects.

A bio-based material is simply a product derived from living matter. A good example is casein-A phosphoprotein, a material extracted from milk and then processed in various ways for use in plastic, dietary supplements, glue, cotton candy, protective coatings and paints.

"Consumers are becoming more conscious about the products they use and their long-term impact on the environment," commented Ecology Coatings CEO Bob Crockett. "This consumer awareness has prompted many companies to incorporate sustainability as an element of their business strategy, and provide products that are more energy efficient, environmentally friendly, cost effective, and in many cases, alternatives to petroleum-based products."

Crockett continued, "While Ecology's coatings incorporating bio-based materials have produced impressive performance results, they remain extremely cost competitive. These coatings provide Ecology Coatings with a competitive edge in an industry that is beginning to develop new technologies to replace costly, environmentally unfriendly products with more sustainable ones."
