The company plans to use a new super-hydrophobic with the nanoShield C-Bond for better water repellency and better visibility
HOUSTON, December 7, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – C-Bond Systems (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a nanotechnology solutions company, today announced that it has completed a joint development project with the Energy Safety Research Institute ( “ESRI”) of Swansea University in the UK and has filed a provisional patent for a new super-hydrophobic (water repellent). The company plans to use the new super-hydrophobic in conjunction with its C-Bond nanoShield ™ windshield booster.
A water repellent is a coating that is applied (usually by spraying) to an automotive windshield to give it water repellent properties. This facilitates water runoff and gives drivers increased visibility when driving in rain or snow. Some examples of commercially available hydrophobes include Rain-X®, Aquapel® and Diamon-Fusion®.
The development was led by Professor Andrew Barron, Founder and Director of ESRI at Swansea University and the Sêr Cymru Chair in Low Carbon Energy and Environment, and the C-Bond engineering team. Professor Barron is a world-renowned chemistry and nanotechnology expert who joined C-Bond’s Scientific Advisory Board in 2019.
“Based on our data, the new hydrophobic product that we have developed and tested is superior to any hydrophobic product currently available commercially,” said Professor Barron. “Not only does it outperform the current water repellant used with C-Bond nanoShield, it is also less expensive than other major windshield water repellants on the market. We believe there will be significant interest in this product in the automotive industry.
The provisional patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office provides, inter alia, for a water repellent composition to form an optically clear water repellent film on a clear or translucent glass substrate. In other words, the provisional patent describes a coating treatment of a vehicle windshield to make the windshield water repellent. The invention can also be applied to architectural windows, mirror glass plates and solar panels.
The global hydrophobic coatings market size was $ 1.34 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $ 2.33 billion by 2025, owing to increasing applications in automotive, aerospace and construction according to Grand View Research, Inc. The automotive industry was the largest application segment for hydrophobic products, accounting for over 20% of total demand in 2015.
The Energy Security Research Institute is positioned to discover and implement new technologies for a sustainable, affordable and secure energy future and is hosted on the Bay Campus of Swansea University. For more information visit https://www.swansea.ac.uk.
