KristalBond unveils protective glass coating

Kristalbond Technologies Sdn Bhd has scored a first by having developed a protective glass coating that it believes could help commercial building owners save a lot in energy bills.

Chief executive officer Joe Gan said the company had developed a liquid coating called KristalBond that prevented heat penetration by cutting 99% of ultra-violet rays and 90% of infrared rays but at the same time allowed high level of light transmission.

He said the product, which easily bonded, was achieved through combining ultra-low temperature Sol-Gel technology and nano technology.

KristalBond, which is headquartered in Shah Alam, acquired the worldwide rights to develop, manufacture and market the liquid coating locally from a Japanese company.

It has also received a matching grant from the Malaysian Technology Development Corp to further develop and enhance the product.

Gan said the product would be showcased at the four-day Malaysia International Building Exposition at the Mines Exhibition Centre in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 21.
