How the 'non-stick' property of SWL™ created a serious problem in manufacturing

SWL™ was made non-stick to optimize sample recovery and ensure 'error free' estimations in analytical applications.

This non-stick property created a serious problem in manufacturing- the printing inks slipped off! The device could not be printed upon- volumetric graduations could not be given. Engraving was an alternative, but the visibility was not as good as printed graduations. What to do? How to print on a non-stick surface? Eventually, the problem was solved by developing special inks for SWL™, which took into account the surface properties of the new plastic.

The result? A highly versatile, easy to use device in which you can monitor volume changes very easily by just inverting the device and seeing the volume as indicated by volumetric graduations printed on the body.
