MetaShield, LLC, a pioneer in advanced materials, announced today it appointed Glenn Mesa Director of Product Development. Mesa previously serviced over 3 years as MetaShield’s Director of Research & Development.
In his new role, Mesa is responsible for tailoring MetaShield’s patented thin-film coating to a wide array of market segments and application. Mesa was instrumental in the development of the company’s base MetaShield formula.
“We’re experiencing intense interest from a wide range of leading global companies in a number of industries, facilitating the expansion of our product development and R&D departments,” said MetaShield CEO and founder Martin Ben-Dayan. “Glenn will lead our efforts to target MetaShield’s specific products and solutions for a growing number of markets based off the core MetaShield offering. Mesa’s background in engineering and physics along with his extensive experience with the R&D department makes him uniquely qualified to fill this role.”
MetaShield’s base formula, which is silica-based, is a breakthrough ultra-thin coating that meaningfully increases the mechanical strength of ordinary glass without adding size, weight, or visible distortion. The formula can be embedded with functional materials to provide enhanced properties for an expanded number of commercial applications.
MetaShield is currently experiencing a period rapid of growth. In response to growing interest, the team has welcomed key team members to assist with the expansion of the multiple solution offerings. As Director of Product Development, Mesa will analyze current trends in various industries to best meet specific industry criteria for MetaShield’s advanced thin-film. His focus will be determining applicable markets, and working with the firm’s R&D department to tailor formulas to best specific industries. MetaShield is seeing interest from companies within industries struggling with glass breakage, UV issues and wafer production loss due to breakability, among others.
MetaShield LLC, (www.metashield.com) is a pioneer in the emerging field of advanced materials – engineered materials with extraordinary properties not found in nature. MetaShield’s core mission is to create highly innovative products that would be both competitively priced and practical for rapid market entry. The company was founded with the goal of using the principles of nanoscience to fulfill technology’s fundamental promise of doing more with less; less size, less weight, and less cost.
The silica-based product is a breakthrough ultra-thin coating that meaningfully increases the mechanical strength of ordinary glass without adding size, weight, or visible distortion. The highly skilled research team also established a way to have functional materials seamlessly embedded to provide enhanced properties. Further transforming this resilient thin film into a product with extraordinary capabilities.
MetaShield can be seamlessly integrated into the manufacturing process by not requiring vapor deposition, extensive cure times or heat. The product was designed to dry at room temperature and cure within minutes using conventional application methods. The proprietary MetaShield formula represents the cutting edge of this technology, which is poised to disrupt the $50 billion+ coating market that has been dominated by polymer based materials for the last half century.
Throughout the past six years, MetaShield has developed superior solutions to real world problems. With the end user in mind, the company focuses on the key benefits that the vast majority of industries would look to incorporate into existing products for unprecedented results.
