City using C-Bond nanoShield on over a thousand vehicles
HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C-Bond Systems (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a nanotechnology solutions company, today announced that C-Bond nanoShield has been chosen by a major metropolitan U.S. city to protect its fleet of municipal vehicles from windshield damage and the rising costs of windshield repair and replacement.
C-Bond nanoShield protects and strengthens windshields by permeating the glass surface and repairing the microscopic flaws and defects on the glass that ultimately initiate chipping and cracking. The strengthening process begins immediately upon application and continues while the material cures in the following days. The product provides long-lasting protection from the increasing windshield repair costs associated with advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) sensor technologies.
The city is currently using C-Bond nanoShield on over a thousand vehicles in its fleet. The Company’s goal is to expand usage of C-Bond nanoShield to substantially the city’s entire fleet, which includes several thousand vehicles. The city has requested anonymity for safety reasons.
“C-Bond nanoShield is proven to reinforce microscopic defects in glass to prevent them from growing into larger chips and cracks that require costly repairs,” stated Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of C-Bond. “We believe the city will recognize a significant savings on its fleet maintenance costs as well as reduced vehicle downtime to maintain productivity for city workers and the services they provide to citizens. We encourage other government agencies with fleet operations to examine how C-Bond products can benefit their overall fleet management as well,” concluded Silverman.
The annual market for automotive glass replacement services in the U.S. exceeded $5 billion in 2016, and is expected to surpass $8 billion by 2025, according to IbisWorld. Approximately 15 million windshields are replaced in the U.S. every year.
C-Bond Systems, Inc. (OTC: CBNT) is a Houston-based advanced nanotechnology company and marketer of the patented and patent-pending C-Bond technology, developed in conjunction with Rice University and independently proven to significantly strengthen glass in key automotive and structural applications. The Company’s Transportation Solutions Group sells C-Bond nanoShield, a liquid solution applied directly to automotive windshields, sold through distributors. The Company’s Safety Solutions Group sells ballistic-resistant glass solutions directly to private enterprises, schools, hospitals, and government agencies.
