How SWL™ became non-stick

A researcher was facing the peculiar problem of sticking of his sample to the hollow chamber of SWL™. He just wondered whether it was possible to make the surface non-stick? Glass surfaces were usually made 'non-stick' by siliconization. Could the plastic be siliconized? The query led to a quest- to make the device non-stick. Plastic experts from industry put their heads together. Academicians put forth their suggestions. Nothing worked and failures kept occurring. Then one day the inventor tried a novel approach- and SUCCEEDED. A specialized 'non-stick' plastic had been developed successfully! This is now used in the manufacture of SWL™. Electron microscopy and detailed analytical studies revealed complete success of the unique technology.
