WattGlass coatings virtually eliminate reflection, glare and fogging on glass and other transparent materials using a proprietary nanoparticle coating. The coating is cost effective and is comprised of well understood and commercially available materials. WattGlass currently offers products for LED Lighting and Solar applications, and is developing application specific coatings for architectural and appliance glass.
WattGlass was founded in 2014 to commercialize a novel nanoparticle glass coating developed at the University of Arkansas by our CEO during his PhD research. WattGlass has secured an exclusive license to this technology and has overseen the filing of a PCT patent application in March 2014. The ongoing research at WattGlass has resulted in the development of additional patent filings related to our core technology.
Corey Thompson, CEO
Dr. Corey Thompson graduated in December 2014 from the University of Arkansas with a Ph.D. in Microelectronics and Photonics with a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship. After graduation, he established WattGlass to commercialize a novel antireflective and self-cleaning glass coating technology that was developed and patented during his Ph.D. research. He has led WattGlass through the raising of more than $3M in non-dilutive capital and a Series-A venture capital investment.
