Nanomaterials Company Recognized for Breakthroughs in Coatings Technology
Ecology Coatings, Inc., a leading provider of nano-engineered ultraviolet curable coatings, is the winner of the Silver Award for Innovation in The Wall Street Journal's 2005 Technology Innovation Awards competition. Selected from a pool of technology innovators from around the world, Ecology Coatings' chief chemist and co-founder Sally Ramsey was honored for her break from conventional approaches in the materials category. Judges selected Ramsey and her suite of energy efficient industrial coatings for the technology's range of applications and environmental friendliness.
"More than a decade ago, I set out to develop a clean alternative to the coatings used by manufacturers to finish products from autos to golf clubs," said Ramsey. "Of course you have to meet manufacturers' efficiency and performance needs before you can tell the clean tech story. The result is a coating that eliminates the time and energy pain points of the OEM line and, true to our original goal, presents a cleaner alternative. This award is a much-appreciated validation of the utility of our hard work and success towards those ends."
Ecology Coatings' nano-engineered products exhibit a completely new set of performance and application properties and are easily integrated into today's manufacturing infrastructure. The proprietary 100 percent solids formulations contain no water, toxic solvents or other liquid components that requires evaporation for the coating to set; a characteristic that eliminates the need for heat in the process, reduces manufacturing line space by 80 percent, cuts energy consumption by 75 percent and dramatically decreases EPA reporting requirements. The unique properties of Ecology Coatings' liquid nanotechnology™ make the coatings ideal for driving efficiencies and innovation across a broad range of applications including paper, electronics, metals and plastic.
Winners of the 5th annual Wall Street Journal 2005 Technology Innovation Awards announced this week were for Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, as well as an Honorable Mention award. A total of 20 runner-ups were named in a dozen categories including biotechnology, software, security, energy and the environment, among others. After a Wall Street Journal editor narrowed the initial field of applicants down to 104 semifinalists, a panel of expert judges from industry, research, and academia then scored each entry and picked the winners. Criteria for selection included companies that embody revolutionary concepts and that have achieved some milestone within the last two years.
