Home > Press > Ecology Coatings Announces Sheet Coating Development Agreement: Exclusive North American Dedicated Production Line for Five Gallon Metal Containers

Abstract:
Ecology Coatings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ECOC), a leader in the discovery and development of nanotechnology-enabled, ultraviolet curable advanced coating materials, today announced that it has signed an agreement with a customer for a dedicated production line using Ecology's patented technology for UV cured coatings on five gallon metal containers made from cold rolled carbon steel. For competitive reasons, the customer has asked Ecology not to disclose its name. The agreement is exclusive to the operations of both parties in North America.

Ecology Coatings Announces Sheet Coating Development Agreement: Exclusive North American Dedicated Production Line for Five Gallon Metal Containers

AUBURN HILLS, MI | Posted on April 28th, 2009

"Our customer has dedicated an entire pilot manufacturing line so that we

can complete the program and become operational as quickly as possible,"

commented Ecology CEO Bob Crockett. "With this customer commitment and the

pending successful completion of production testing, we expect the program

to be operational on the initial manufacturing line within 12 months. The

driving force behind this program is the significant energy savings and

improved process efficiency realized by the customer through the adoption of our technology."

Ecology Coatings' EcoQuik(TM) product family, formally launched in April 2008, is comprised of three coating lines, clear coatings, pigmented coatings and barrier coatings, targeting markets in excess of $21 billion in North America (Frost & Sullivan 2007). This program utilizes the technology of patent number 7,498,362, recently awarded by the US Patent and Trademark Office, which provides superior adhesion to metal surfaces and provides flexibility, durability and scratch resistance.

"Our product performance characteristics and user benefits make our UV curable coatings a desirable alternative to traditional coatings in a wide range of diversified markets, from automotive to packaging industries and products ranging from medical products to paper labels," said Crockett. "We are aggressively expanding our intellectual property portfolio of cleantech UV coatings and are highly focused on pursuing license agreements and joint development programs with leaders in the transportation, durable goods, electronics and health care sectors."

Ecology's EcoQuik(TM) coatings provide superior wear, scratch resistance and hardness with a single application, which reduces coating thickness and offers versatility in applications. All of Ecology's coatings are ultraviolet curable, which provides for faster manufacturing speeds, lower energy output and a smaller manufacturing footprint. Additionally, the cleantech coatings contain no harmful solvents or other additives, eliminating and protecting against potential corrosion or flash rusting.
