Transcript

  • 1. MGMT-632 A Method using Chemical Resin to Make Impact Resistant Glass Young, Sakshi, Max, Gourav
  • 2. Contents Technology Description Technologies Benefits Potential Market Market Interest Development status of Technology Intellectual Property status Competing Technologies and Competitors Barriers of Market Entry Recommendations
  • 3. Technology Description • New method of strengthening glass • Chemical resins used • Strata of materials • Added durability without interfering with transparency
  • 4. Technologies Benefits • Lighter • Cheaper • Heat-resistant • Scratch-proof • Use regular commercial glass
  • 5. Technologies Benefits • One-inch thickness able to withstand armor piercing bullet • Smaller fracturing diameter
  • 6. Potential Market • Bullet Resistant Glass • Construction Glass • Automotive Glass • Electronic Glass
  • 7. Market Interest • Very large potential market • Market is already heavily saturated • Suffers from poor timing and funding • Potential partners expressed interest but were concerned about potential costs
  • 8. Development status of Technology • Tested and proven using several kinds of armor piercing bullets • One-inch thickness or thinner • Ready for scale-up
  • 9. Intellectual Property status • Charles Smith and Catherine Sincich • Licensing through the Office of Technology Commercialization at Texas A&M University System • Patented since 2008.
  • 10. Barriers of Market Entry Competition Big Companies have suppliers Total Cost Unknown Scale Up required
  • 11. Barriers of Market Entry More Testing Visibility Retainable properties? Marketing
  • 12. Competing Technologies and Competitors • Market Leader Technologies • • • • Corning Gorilla Glass Bullet Resistant Glass http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doCbCU92AjE Impact Resistant Glass Technologies • • • Thermal Tempering Chemical Tempering Acid Etching
  • 13. Recommendations “We know the Wheel is already reinvented and it will take a lot of pain to resell it.” • • • We do not recommend that A&M invest any additional funds into this project. The market for this technology is highly saturated and it is unknown if the technology will be marketable without first scaling it up to an industrial scale. There is simply too much risk to invest on a technology which achieves the same results as other technologies in a highly saturated market, especially when these technologies, such as Gorilla Glass are already firmly entrenched in their markets. Hence,
