Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) July 22, 2005
Ecology Coatings, Inc., a leading provider of nano-engineered ultraviolet curable coatings, has been named one of the 10 Private Cleantech Companies to Watch by Red Herring. A premier source of technology business news and information, Red Herring Magazine recognized Ecology Coatings for its remarkable cleantech innovation and promising market potential.
"Environmental concerns have been the single most influential factor driving the coatings industry for the past decade. Nearly every product manufactured needs a protective coating for durability and color, and traditionally those coating formulations include solvents that are extremely toxic or require enormous amounts of heat and energy to dry," said Rich Stromback, CEO and president of Ecology Coatings. "ItÂs an honor to be recognized among Red HerringÂs select group of cleantech companies for our coatings that address those environmental concerns, drive efficiencies on the manufacturing line, and bring paint into the 21st century."
Red HerringÂs full profile of Ecology Coatings is available on the Red Herring website.
Ecology Coatings' proprietary coatings deliver superior performance properties and enable dramatic process efficiencies for manufacturers without compromising environmental and public health. The companyÂs breakthrough 100 percent solids formulations do not contain any toxic solvents, water or other liquid components that require evaporation for the coating to set. The resulting coatings release no pollutants to the ambient environment, cut energy expenditures by 75 percent and reduce manufacturing line space by 80 percent. These unique qualities make the nano-engineered coatings ideal for a wide range of applications including metals, electronics, and plastic.
"Ecology Coatings' products were developed to specifically address the need I saw for a clean coating technology; there simply are not any other environmentally-sound coatings options on the market today," said Sally Ramsey, chief chemist and founder of Ecology Coatings. "It is exciting to be providing a product that makes clean coatings the good business choice for manufacturers around the world."
Ecology Coatings partners with industry leaders to commercialize and deliver its high-value coatings to market.
