New York, NY, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/–MetaShield, LLC, a pioneer in advanced materials technology, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued to it US Patent No. 10,131,802 that covers a novel and scalable advanced material formula. The patent is for invention of a durable, optically clear, multi-use coating material.
“This latest patent culminates several years of scientific investigation and testing by the MetaShield laboratories, and its team of highly trained physicists, chemists, and engineers,” said Martin Ben-Dayan, CEO of MetaShield.
“Various formulations offer a variety of useful products specially engineered functional materials to express a variety of properties for any given application. This technology is a platform that serves as a durable, thin, easy to apply, and transparent delivery mechanism for these functional materials. Some examples include increases in overall surface cleanliness, full spectrum UV blocking, and glass strengthening,” he said.
Unlike petroleum-based coatings in common use today, this new material provides years of ultraviolet sunlight and radiation damage resistance making it suitable for a myriad of every-day uses. Most optically clear petroleum-based products when continuously exposed to sunlight will continue to polymerize until the coating hardens beyond its ability to remain flexible and fractures.
Common modes of application include conventional and ultrasonic spraying, dip coating, and spin coating depending on the intended use and line speed. MetaShield products are specifically designed for easy application and integration into common high throughput manufacturing processes.
MetaShield maintains a testing facility measuring, among other technical attributes, nanoindentation, nanoparticle distribution and density, UV resistance, scratch resistance, impact resistance, ring on ring crush resistance of glass objects, linear and circular Taber abrasion resistance compliant with ASTM and other standards.
MetaShield often collaborates with Tier 1, Fortune 500 OEMs. The company provides both small volume application kits for initial testing and validation as well as industrial quantities. For more information or sales inquiries please visit www.MetaShield.com or contact MetaShield at 212-938-3644
