SLIPS® Zero™

For Consumer Packaging

For several years, Adaptive Surface Technologies has been developing a SLIPS® technology solution to allow the complete emptying of plastic containers. This technology enables packaging designers to take advantage of distinctive new shapes and formats to differentiate their brand. These shapes may have previously been impossible, due to residual product sticking inside the package.

Working in partnership with international consumer goods companies and specialty food manufacturers, AST created this innovative solution to deliver several advantages in consumer packaging:

Safe for Food

Composed of an edible oil (GRAS-designated) on FDA-approved plastic resins for direct food contact


Utilizes industry-standard application equipment and readily available ingredients


Meets brand owner shelf-life requirements, delivering consistent emptying performance over the product lifetime


Reduces product waste and facilitates package recycling or reuse


Gives designers flexibility to use new packaging materials and formats with viscous products
