PV Nano Cell (OTCQB: PVNNF), an innovative producer of single-crystal, metal nanometric based conductive digital inks, announced that the Japanese Patent Office (JPO) has granted its silver nano particles patent1.
"Japan represents one of the largest and most advanced research and development markets for advanced electronics. We believe that our innovative line of conductive digital silver inks offers significant value to our potential customers in the Japanese market. This most recent patent offers us intellectual property protection and also expands the exposure of our Sicrys™ based technology in the region," stated Dr. Fernando de la Vega, CEO of PV Nano Cell.
"At this time, we have been granted patents in four 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 9 additional counties," concluded Dr. de la Vega.
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 the United States (US 9556350 B2), Russia (RU 2593311) and China (CN 103282969).
