Menda Scientific Receives U.S. Patent for Acrylic Dispenser

Menda Scientific Products, Inc., beginning its 42nd year, proudly announces it has received a U.S. patent on its dispenser for acrylic resins. The dispenser, which has been sold for almost three years and was granted a design patent in 1987, is especially for nail technicians who sculpt acrylic nails.

Menda received its first patent for a fluid dispensing pump in 1949. It is still used by doctors, hospitals and labs worldwide. In 1956, the Menda stainless steel pump dispenser was patented. It has become a standard tool for dispensing solvents in industrial manufacturing and other uses.

In the early 1980s, the Menda dispenser provided a method of controlling the volatile, evaporative liquid used for sculptured nails, but it could get clogged by the combination of liquid and powder.

Menda’s new dispenser keeps unused acrylic liquid separated from the powder in a sealed container until ready for use. By simply touching the dispensing dish with a brush or applicator, a few drops of liquid are pumped into a holding dish for immediate use. Powder can activate only those few drops, while unused fluid remains uncontaminated in the reservoir below. This reduces waste, evaporation, smells, and eliminates clogging.

“One measure of the success of our new dispenser,” said David Landecker, president of Menda and inventor of the new design, “is the fact that several foreign-made imitations are already on the market. Our acrylic liquid pump has already become an accepted tool for nail technicians, and is sold throughout the world, and there are other applications for this pump which we are only just beginning to investigate.

“We are pleased that the Patent Office recognized the uniqueness of this new tool, and are looking forward to even greater success now that the utility patent has issued.”

Menda also has introduced a series of decorated porcelain reservoir bottles, to be used with its pumps.
