Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK), a global ultrasonic wet spray technology company, announces a new distributor for the float glass industry. IfG is a leading provider to the float glass industry for powder application systems, based out of Waiblingen, Germany.
The addition of Sono-Tek’s ultrasonic liquid spray technology to IfG’s line of glass coating equipment completes the company’s full range of wet spray and dry coating systems for the float glass industry. IfG’s long reputation for quality glass finishing makes them a perfect partner for distributing Sono-Tek’s precision ultrasonic glass coating systems. Both Sono-Tek and IfG specialize in providing effective, reliable, innovative surface finishing solutions designed exactly to customer specifications.
Steve Harshbarger, president of Sono-Tek Corporation, stated, “IfG is a logical partner for Sono-Tek to expand our presence in the float glass industry. They have a widespread customer base, and are known for providing high-quality equipment with superior service.”
Sono-Tek Corporation has been providing ultrasonic liquid spray systems to float glass manufacturers for more than a decade, applying anti-stain coatings of organic acid solutions to protect glass during transportation and storage, as well as applying protective anti-scratch coatings onto Low-E float glass. These spray systems are designed for continuous 24-7 operation manufacturing.
Ultrasonic liquid spray equipment commonly replaces air spray with precise ultrasonic deposition to provide a more uniform, drip-free, non-clogging coating method. Whereas air spray nozzles are prone to clogging, ultrasonic nozzles are non-clogging devices, resulting in drastic reductions in maintenance requirements. Ultrasonic spray achieves savings of up to 80 percent in liquid usage and reduced exhaust requirements with dramatic reduction in overspray. Significant improvements in uniformity using ultrasonic spray lead to fewer defects and improved glass protection, applying thin-film layers evenly across the entire glass surface. Additionally, operators are protected from high levels of atmospheric contamination due to bounce back of material when compared to liquid air spray processes.
IfG’s 30 years of experience, reputation for quality equipment and technical expertise in protecting glass is complemented by Sono-Tek's 35 years of innovation in high-tech, reliable ultrasonic spray equipment. Sono-Tek is pleased and excited to add IfG to its extensive global distribution network.

Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
