UNIVERSITY PARK, ILL. — Avatar Corp. has partnered with Spraying Systems Co. to optimize performance of its release agents.

The collaboration combines Spraying Systems’ Precision Spray Technology with Avatar’s release agents, which are tailored to affect clean and consistent release of food products from equipment surfaces using a minimum amount of product. The partnership will help reduce production costs for food manufacturers, the companies said.

“Companies who promote their application technology with limited applied chemistry in their release agents have failed to evolve and innovate,” said Ed Trauth, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Avatar Corp. “Avatar has always formulated its release agents to address the application-specific challenges faced by our customers, so it only makes sense to collaborate with a spray technology company who specializes in applications.”
