C-Bond Ballistic-Resistant System with Patented C-Bond Nanotechnology Stops Bullets
C-Bond ballistic-resistant system stops bullets fired from a semi-automatic rifle and handgun from penetrating glass windows at live demonstration
HOUSTON, March 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C-Bond Systems, Inc. (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a nanotechnology company that improves and strengthens glass, hosted a live demonstration of its ballistic-resistant technology this week at the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center outside Austin, TX. C-Bond BRS (ballistic-resistant system) stopped bullets from a 9mm handgun and an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle from penetrating glass windows.
C-Bond BRS is validated by an independent third-party laboratory to provide National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level I, Level IIA, Level II, and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 752 ballistic-resistant protection.
ALERRT training centers, considered to be the national standard for law enforcement and active shooter response training, provided the facilities and testing for the demonstration, which was attended by various Texas agencies, Austin area K-12 schools, and local law enforcement.
John Curnutt, Assistant Director at ALERRT and frequent expert contributor on CNN for active assailant/attack response and protection, called C-Bond a potential “game changer.” Curnutt said, “The C-Bond system proved it could stop bullets from penetrating glass. That could dramatically prevent or improve the survivor rate during an active assailant attack by providing a deterrent and increased reaction time. It was awesome to watch the demonstration and encourage other agencies, businesses, and schools in particular to look at this new technology to protect lives,” continued Curnutt.
C-Bond’s glass strengthening technology is protected by 22 patents and patent pending applications. The C-Bond solution increases the mechanical properties of the glass unit, enabling the window to dissipate higher energy by targeting and repairing the microscopic flaws and defects that are randomly distributed naturally on the glass surface. These surface imperfections weaken the glass composite structure and initiate failures. C-Bond chemically bonds to the defects increasing both strength and flexibility.
C-Bond Systems, Inc. (OTC: CBNT) is a Houston-based advanced nanotechnology company and marketer of the patented 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 Automotive vertical sells C-Bond NanoShield, a liquid solution applied directly to automotive windshields, sold through distributors. The Company’s Structural vertical sells ballistic-resistant glass solutions directly to private enterprises, schools and government agencies.
