Patent No. 10,273,347, Nano (Multifunctional) Solutions for Glass and Glass Products: Heterogeneous Nano-Self-Assembly and/or Coating, protects the Company’s technology that uses nanoparticles to heal the flaws found in glass and similar materials.

C-Bond Systems, a nanotechnology solutions company that improves and strengthens glass, announced today that it was awarded U.S. Patent No. 10,273,347, Nano (Multifunctional) Solutions for Glass and Glass Products: Heterogeneous Nano-Self-Assembly and/or Coating, for increasing glass strength including the incorporation of nanoparticles for different glass product applications.

The invention covered by the patent, which was co-developed with nanotechnology experts at Rice University, unlocks the science of strengthening materials, including but limited to glass, without the need for a continuous coating, and creating strengthened laminates. The compositions of the invention find heterogeneous sites on the surface and edges of the material substrates (e.g. glass) and heal the flaws through localized self-assembly of the nanoparticles working with the ingredients in the compositions.

“Our ‘smart’ solution strengthens glass by seeking out the flaws and defects inherent in glass and healing or filling them through the use of nanoparticles, which themselves actually become a part of the glass,” said Scott R. Silverman, the Company’s Chairman and CEO. “Our novel approach allows us to apply our technology to a variety of applications including windshields, architectural glass, glass bottling, solar panels, and others.”

The patent protects the Company’s flagship product, C-Bond NanoShield™, which is a liquid solution that is sprayed directly onto a windshield and then wiped off using a squeegee. C-Bond NanoShield's unique technology then works to repair the identified surface imperfections that weaken the glass composite structure, ultimately causing windshield chips and cracks. It can be applied at any time from the OEM level to the end-user. The strengthening process begins immediately upon application and continues while the material cures in the following days. C-Bond NanoShield is also available with a hydrophobic (water repellent), known as the Company’s C-Bond NanoShield Plus product.

C-Bond NanoShield is a cost-effective solution that reduces windshield repair and replacement, which, according to the Insurance Journal, is the number one insurance claim in the United States, representing 30% of auto insurance claims and costing insurers an estimated $4 billion annually.

The patent also protects C-Bond BRS, the Company’s ballistic-resistant system that includes the application of its glass-strengthening liquid solution and laminated layers of window film on a glass surface. C-Bond BRS has been installed in more than 70 schools, government buildings and other corporate facilities to increase safety.
