Feds give Canadian tech company $2.7M to bring windshield coating to market
A Canadian company that has developed a clear coating it says can defog and defrost a windshield without the use of the vehicle’s fan is getting $2.7 million from the federal government to help bring the technology to market.

3E Nano of Kitchener, Ont., will use the money to build a demonstration plant and bring its prototype into production, creating about 30 jobs.

As solar energy passes through the coating, the heat is reflected away from the interior of the vehicle, essentially acting like transparent insulation and heat source, too. That heat can then be used to dry fog on the inside of a vehicle’s windshield or melt ice on the outside.

(I hope you weren't thinking it was going to be somebody from Arizona who solved the problem of window fogging and icing) ... ews-weekly
