C-Bond Systems (C-Bond), a nanotechnology solutions company, recently announced that it has filed a patent titled Composition and Method for Multipurpose Emulsion that Strengthens Glass and Modifies Glass Surface in the European Union. The patent was filed to protect the Company’s invention of C-Bond NanoShield™, which the company says, strengthens glass through a one-step solution that modifies the surface characteristics of glass and increases the fracture resistance of glass.
C-Bond NanoShield targets and bonds within the surface defects of the windshield to provide resistance against chipping or cracking under stress, according to the company. It has also been validated by independent, third-party testing to significantly decrease windshield damage. According to C-Bond, it is a cost-effective solution that reduces the need for windshield repair and replacement.
“This latest patent filing helps us continue to fortify our intellectual property portfolio, which is the foundation of everything we do,” said Scott R. Silverman, C-Bond Chairman and CEO. “We are very proud of the work done by our in-house scientists on this invention, which changes the way glass performs in order to make it stronger and gives it a hydrophobic quality for better water run-off and, in turn, better visibility during rain.”
