The Science Behind C-Bond

 

The C-Bond Technology is a direct result of nanotechnology engineering. Nanotechnology is defined as manipulating molecules within matter at an atomic scale to yield desirable performance properties. In science, C-Bond is referred to as a disruptive innovation or a new product that creates a distinct and “unfair” market advantage.

C-Bond Research and Development

C-Bond™ was developed at Rice University in Houston, Texas, a world leader in nanotechnology, home to the Smalley Institute of Nanoscale Science & Technology and recipient of the Nobel Prize for discovery of the carbon nanotube. (www.rice.edu)

C-Bond Systems partners with Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) in San Antonio, Texas, an independent applied research organization that specializes in the creation and transfer of technology. SWRI has expertise in design and development, testing, chemistry and mechanical engineering and has provided C-Bond with innovative internal research approaches to further optimize the C-Bond technology. (www.swri.com)

C-Bond Systems is in a collaborative partnership with the UK Government, Swansea University and Glass Technology Services Ltd. to explore how C-Bond™ can improve the strength (and therefore enable light-weighting) of glass products. Swansea University, established in 1920 is a world-leading research-led university in the UK that provides an environment of discovery and research that is both globally collaborative and internationally recognized. (www.swansea.ac.uk).

Glass Technology Services Ltd. (GTS) is a world renowned center for glass research and development and an independent glass laboratory and consultancy accredited to ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 quality standards and unrivaled in the UK for glass expertise. GTS provides expert analysis, physical testing, assessment, research, development, training and consultancy throughout the glass supply channel. (www.glass-ts.com)

What is C-Bond?

C-Bond is a patent protected, water-based, non-toxic, nanotechnology innovation designed to significantly increase the strength of glass, enhance glass flexibility and improve the performance of window film-to-glass products.

How does C-Bond Work?

C-Bond is a ‘smart solution’ engineered to maintain original glass design integrity while dramatically increasing the mechanical performance properties of the glass unit. It enables ordinary glass to dissipate energy by permeating the glass surface and identifying microscopic flaws and defects that are randomly distributed and a natural part of every glass surface. C-Bond’s proprietary technology then works to covalently bond to and repair the identified surface imperfections that weaken the glass composite structure and act as failure initiators.

The C-Bond formula also improves the performance of window film products by filling the capillary voids on the glass surface preventing the trapping of moisture and impurities that impede cure time and adhesion between the glass and any succeeding film product. This is important so that in case of impact, no large pieces will escape the immediate area of the glass surface that could otherwise result in serious laceration and/or personal injury.


C-Bond is a “Smart Solution”

C-Bond identifies and repairs the microscopic flaws and defects that are randomly distributed and a natural part of every glass surface.

C-Bond Benefits

C-Bond improves glass safety by modifying the failure pattern in case of breakage.

Carbon Nanotube (CNT)

Science has established that carbon nanotubes (CNT) are the strongest material on the planet, 100 times stronger than steel and 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
