Sirris Smart coating roadshow - Slips introduction 2

  1. 1. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential April 12, 2015 Slippery Solutions for Sticky Problems™ SLIPS™ and Slippery Solutions for Sticky Problems™ are Trademarks of SLIPS Technologies, Inc. To watch movies in this presentation, visit:
  2. 2. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential2 About SLIPS Technologies, Inc. products stick inside containers bacteria stick to medical devices barnacles stick to boat hulls ice sticks to heat exchangers •  Launched Oct 2014 with $3M Series A led by BASF VC •  Raising $7.5M Series B – fund beta product launch materials stick to process equipment •  Materials & coatings products with fully-slippery surfaces •  Repel virtually all fluids and biological fouling agents •  Specialty coatings market = $120B, 5% CAGR •  Extensive patent portfolio – Harvard licenses plus own filings •  Industrial, medical and consumer applications, e.g.:
  3. 3. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential3 First Year Accomplishments •  2 lead product formulations developed •  400+ customer interactions (mostly inbound) •  25+ paid evaluations/development programs •  7 successful field tests •  $575K in grant funding (ARPA-E)
  4. 4. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential4 The SLIPS™ Difference: Liquid Surface Interface Solid surfaces are rough and have many pinning points Unwanted fluids or biological foulants get stuck and “smear” a solid surface Unwanted fluids or biological foulants slide off a SLIPS liquid film surfaceSLIPS™ surfaces have a stable & immobilized liquid lubricant overlayer, a smooth & slippery fully-liquid surface
  5. 5. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential5 SLIPS™ vs. Alternatives Teflon® solid surfaces: chemically inert, but not that slippery; relatively durable Structured [lotus leaf] solid surfaces: superhydrophobic but don’t repel much else; can easily become super-wet; fragile SLIPS™ liquid surfaces: 100% liquid interface, super slippery and omniphobic; self-healing and easy-clean, not permanent but re- plenishable
  6. 6. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential6 Two Product Formulations Polymer matrix with self- replenishing lubricant reservoir SLIPS™ Liquid Lubricant Film Overlayer Metal, plastic, glass, ceramic substrate Formats: spray, paint, film, curable mixtures S-SLIPS R-SLIPS
  7. 7. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential7 Solid Patent Position •  9 patent families exclusively licensed from Harvard (Jan’11 priority) •  2 foundational patents granted* - broad claims –  articles with a slippery liquid overlayer –  methods of making SLIPS –  uses of SLIPS •  Company-owned patent filings –  compositions of matter –  methods and uses *9,121,306 & 9,121,307
  8. 8. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential8 •  SLIPS™ Product Sales –  manufacture via toll partners –  sales and distribution direct or with partners –  examples: marine paint, ice-release film, easy-release bags/pouches, slippery tubings/O-rings •  SLIPS™ Product Royalties –  License SLIPS to customers for specific applications –  example: SLIPS for lubricious shaving cartridge How We Make Money
  9. 9. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential9 Series B •  $7.5M to fund β product launches by 2017 –  $5M for SLIPS marine anti-fouling products –  $2.5M for SLIPS product extensions •  down-select 1 additional SLIPS product opportunity •  execute 4 licensing deals •  Close in late 2016 •  Series A post-money: $5.2M –  Led by BASF Venture Capital –  Co-investor: Hansjörg Wyss Trust

Confidential11 Customer-Funded Pipeline Viscous fluid release in manufacturing & containers Non-fouling submerged lenses (e.g. endoscopes) Frost & ice release - heat exchangers and roofs Liquid barrier for cement and concrete 1st Target Market (Marine) Lubricious disposable consumer product 2nd Target Market (TBD) Licensing Opportunities Non-stick biological growth media labware Medical Devices (e.g. drainage catheters)
  12. 12. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential12 1st Product: Marine Foul-Impede Paint •  Initial focus on merchant vessels - $3.5B •  Big adjacent markets: recreational vessels, aquaculture •  Opportunity for $30M revenues in 2020 •  Non-toxic FuelEfficiency 1yr 2yrs 3yrs $20B Fuel Penalty 90% of market uses toxic Cu-based paints
  13. 13. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential13 •  90% (86,000) of merchant vessels that run “slow” (<15 knots) •  Foul-release non-toxic alternatives to Cu are limited in this regime –  too soft for many applications –  high ownership costs •  Large adjacent market opportunities –  other vessels (Navy, recreational) –  aquaculture –  submerged structures Opportunity: SLIPS Solution: Foul-Impede Coatings •  Non-toxic but with similar costs to Cu •  Smooth, low drag, tough •  Effective for slow vessels Marine Foul-Impede Paint
  14. 14. © 2014-2015 SLIPS Technologies, Inc. Confidential14 Good Field Test Results Status and Plan •  NDSU Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering “SLIPS are one of only a handful of next generation, ecofriendly materials I have come across that pose a clear and present danger to marine biofouling —barnacles beware.”  Shane Stafslien, Director, Bioactive Materials Research Lab •  1-year static test (Boston area harbor), >95% removal •  Effectively no barnacle adhesion in dynamic field tests (2 mths) •  β product development & formulation optimization in process •  JV/JDP discussions with several strategic partners •  ARPA-E grant received (total $575K), additional $5M pitched •  Dynamic testing in progress Q2’16 •  First installation on ship hull Q3’16 •  $30M revenues by 2020 Marine Foul-Impede Paint (cont’d)
