C-Bond Expands International Distribution of C-Bond NanoShield as Leading Rental Car Company Orders 4,000 Additional Applications for Vehicles in Canada

April 2, 2019

HOUSTON, April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C-Bond Systems (the “Company” or “C-Bond”) (OTC: CBNT), a nanotechnology solutions company that improves and strengthens glass, announced today that it is expanding international distribution of C-Bond NanoShield™ as a leading rental car company orders 4,000 additional applications for vehicles in Canada. The rental car company previously ordered C-Bond NanoShield for testing on 80,000 vehicles at 18 major locations in North America.

C-Bond NanoShield offers advanced windshield protection by permeating the glass surface and detecting the microscopic flaws and defects randomly distributed all over the glass surface. The product is sprayed directly onto a windshield and then wiped off using a squeegee. C-Bond NanoShield’s unique technology then works to repair the identified surface imperfections that weaken the glass and ultimately initiate windshield chipping and cracking. The strengthening process begins immediately upon application and continues while the material cures in the following days.

“We are very pleased to have an existing customer place a substantial new order for C-Bond NanoShield and broaden the distribution of our products outside the U.S.,” stated Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of C-Bond. “We are evaluating multiple exclusive and non-exclusive international distribution partners and we believe this order gives us added validation in new markets.”

C-Bond NanoShield is a cost-effective solution that reduces windshield repair and replacement, which, according to the Insurance Journal, is the number one insurance claim in the United States, representing 30% of auto insurance claims. This is estimated to cost insurers more than $4 billion annually.

C-Bond NanoShield is available with a hydrophobic (water repellent), known as the Company’s C-Bond NanoShield Plus product. C-Bond’s patented technology was jointly developed with nanotechnology experts at Rice University.
