SDS-BIONIC WORLDWIDE, LTD. from London, United Kingdom announced today it has signed a global license with INTUITIVE COATINGS, INC., from Austin, Texas USA, a sustainable materials company, pioneering a family of nano-molecular Protective Coatings and Sealants, for exclusive rights to supply the innovative protective coatings on a global basis.
SDS-BIONIC will distribute commercial quantities of proprietary nano-molecular products targeted at metal, concrete, marine-hull, wood, glass and fabric coatings / sealants marketplace. The distribution agreement represents the product line's initial commercial entry into the worldwide markets outside of the United States and Canada.
"We're excited to announce this new distribution agreement with SDS-BIONIC, which is underwritten by GIBRALTAR CAPITAL GROUP, a leading international investment banking institution - specializing in funding and rolling-out regional distribution networks for innovative product lines - and we look forward to expanding our reach into the markets that they can open," said Charles Foster III, CEO for INTUITIVE COATINGS. "GIBRALTAR CAPITAL has well-established relationships in target capital markets and the necessary resources that will help us grow our position in the global marketplace."
In response to strong interest for its nano-molecular Protective Coatings and Sealants, SDS-BIONIC is lining up distribution agreements which will accelerate the commercial adoption of its materials through-out select markets in S.E. Asia, Middle East and Latin America.
SDS-BIONIC is planning to announce the opening of a new manufacturing and distribution plant to support S.E. Asia - located at the Clark Freeport Zone, outside of Manila in the Philippines. "SDS-BIONIC has a broad distribution product portfolio and a network with extensive knowledge in application of its Protective Coatings on all substrates," according to Mr. Nestor Bonifacio Jr., CEO of GIBRALTAR CAPITAL operations within S.E. Asia and COO of SDS-BIONIC for Pacific Rim.
"SDS-BIONIC will provide all support services including technical marketing, account management, application development, customer service, warehousing, and logistics," added Mr. Bonifacio." Future manufacturing and distributions plants are scheduled to go on-line during 2015 in Mexico, Brazil and Turkey.
SDS-BIONIC coatings are so named for the science at their heart. SDS-BIONIC coatings not only use covalent and ionic molecular bonds to link together the nano particles used in the surface coatings themselves but also to link the coatings to the substrate.
Covalent bonds are the strongest of all chemical bonds. They link the atoms together in many molecules and are the basis for most of the stable substances we know such as water and oxygen. When large structures are bound together with covalent and ionic bonds they form very hard structures. The best known example of this is the diamond which is made up of covalently bonded carbon atoms. Another example is quartz made up of covalently bound silicon dioxide.
The covalent and ionic bonding between the nano particles gives the coating unparalleled hardness and the bonding between the coating and the substrate "welds" the substrate and the coating together as a single structure providing unsurpassed adhesion.
The use of nano-sized quartz particles means that the surface is more completely covered and protected. A traditional coating observed under a microscope would reveal voids in the surface allowing moisture penetration and dirt build-up. SDS-BIONIC coatings compared under the same microscope will reveal holes the size of pinholes compared to the beach ball sized holes of traditional coatings.
SDS-BIONIC coatings are 21st century coatings which are based on nano technology but are also "beyond nano." This is what gives them superior performance and longevity. SDS-BIONIC coatings extend the life of equipment, machinery, buildings and objects - they protect, preserve and enhance any substrate, to which it is applied.
