Company Plans to Use New Super-Hydrophobic with C-Bond nanoShield for Improved Water Repulsion and Visibility

HOUSTON, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C-Bond Systems (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a nanotechnology solutions company, announced today that it has successfully completed a joint development project with the Energy Safety Research Institute (“ESRI”) at Swansea University in the United Kingdom and 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 strengthener.

A hydrophobic is a coating that is applied (usually spray-on) to an automotive windshield to give it water repellent properties. This facilitates water run-off and gives drivers increased visibility while driving in the rain or snow. Some examples of commercially available hydrophobics include Rain-X®, Aquapel®, and Diamon-Fusion®.

Development was led by Professor Andrew Barron, the founder and director of the ESRI at Swansea University and the Sêr Cymru Chair of Low Carbon Energy and Environment, and C-Bond’s engineering team. Prof. Barron is a world-renowned chemistry and nanotechnology expert who joined C-Bond’s Science Advisory Board in 2019.

“According to our data, the new hydrophobic we developed and tested is superior to any hydrophobic that is currently commercially available,” stated Prof. Barron. “Not only does it perform better than the current hydrophobic used with C-Bond nanoShield, but it is also less expensive than other leading windshield water repellent products on the market. We believe there will be significant interest for this product in the automotive industry.”

The provisional patent filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office provides for, among other things, a water repellent composition for forming an optically clear, water repellent film on a clear or translucent glass substrate. In other words, the provisional patent describes a treatment for coating a windshield of a vehicle to render the windshield water repellent. The invention can also be applied to architectural windows, mirror glass plates, and solar panels.

The global hydrophobic coating market size was $1.34 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $2.33 billion by 2025, owing to growing applications in the automotive, aerospace, and construction industries according to Grand View Research, Inc. The automotive industry was the largest application segment for hydrophobic products, accounting for over 20% of the total demand in 2015.

The Energy Safety Research Institute is positioned to discover and implement new technology for a sustainable, affordable, and secure energy future and is housed on Swansea University’s Bay Campus. For more information visit https://www.swansea.ac.uk.
