PV Nano Cell Announces U.S. Patent Granted Related to Sicrys™ Silver Inks
MIGDAL HA’EMEK, ISRAEL (January 31, 2017) – PV Nano Cell (OTCQB: PVNNF), an innovative producer of single-crystal, metal nanometric based conductive digital inks, announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted its silver nano particles patent1.
“Receiving the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s grant of our patent related to Sicrys™ silver inks in the U.S. provides us certain protections as we move ahead with our plans to initiate sales in 2017 to our customers and partners in this market. Our patents for single crystal Nano metal particles based dispersions and inks are key to protecting the technology that allows us to deliver on our vision of revolutionizing the printed electronics industry. At this time, we have been granted patents in three countries for our silver single crystal nano particles based dispersions and inks and have submitted patents related to our silver and copper nano particles in 10 additional counties,” said Dr. Fernando de la Vega, CEO of PV Nano Cell.
PV Nano Cell’s Silver Nano particles patent titled “STABLE DISPERSIONS OF MONOCRYSTALLINE NANOMETRIC SILVER PARTICLES,” covers a concentrated dispersion of nanometric silver particles, plurality of nanometric silver particles, in which a majority are single-crystal silver particles, the plurality of nanometric silver particles having an average secondary particle size (d50) within a range of 30 to 300 nanometers, the particles disposed within the solvent; and a method of producing the dispersion.
The Company has previously been granted patents for its silver nano particles in Russia (RU 2593311) and China (CN 103282969).
