Commercializing slippery liquid infused porous surfaces (SLIPS)

Slippery liquid infused porous surfaces (SLIPS) products are unique because they present a 100% liquid interface to the outside world. SLIPS have a stable and immobilized liquid lubricant film overlayer. This "liquid surface" is cost-effective, easy to apply, robust, and highly repellent to virtually all liquids and biological fouling agents. SLIPS solves sticky surface problems in medical, industrial, and consumer applications - for example, barnacles sticking to marine vessels, bacteria sticking to medical devices, ice sticking to heat exchangers, and viscous fluids sticking inside containers. We will share our stories about "bridging the gap" from academia-invented technology to a commercial product in the market.
