Guardian and Intermolecular extend partnership to develop advanced glass coatings

Post Time:Feb 06,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:111

Intermolecular, Inc. and Guardian Industries today announced the expansion and extension of their collaborative development program and strategic technology licensing agreement. The partnership addresses the development of a diverse portfolio of advanced glass coatings, many related to energy conservation or generation, according to a Feb. 6 Guardian release.

Intermolecular’s High-Productivity Combinatorial R&D platform accelerates time-to-market for new and improved Guardian glass products, according to the release. The newly signed agreement will extend and broaden the existing partnership to allow the two companies to collaborate on a greater number of technology development projects simultaneously.

“Over the past two years, Guardian has evaluated and validated Intermolecular’s team and HPC technology platform,” said Scott Thomsen, president of Guardian’s Flat Glass Group, in the release. “Our programs with Intermolecular in both sputtered and liquid coatings are succeeding as expected, rapidly generating differentiated intellectual property that will result in superior products coming to market in the coming months and years. In fact, Intermolecular’s approach to accelerated R&D led to a greater internal demand to work together. The team at Intermolecular is both responsive and capable, and HPC technology delivers as advertised. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Intermolecular.”
