About The 100% Polyurea Elastomeric System

In 2001, Thermos filed an application for a patent for his invention of a product that can be used as a surface spray coating and lining. This invention is unique because the product has no polyol linkages, which lead to quicker degradation of a material. Most polymer products currently on the market are not in fact polyureas, since they contain polyol linkages. Thermos' invention is unique in that it contains no polyol linkages and is thus more resistant to deterioration. This makes it an excellent product for coating tanks, ponds, troughs, bridges, and roofs, and other areas that are typically susceptible to water.

Patent Application History

Working with Anastasios Zahariadis and under the Urethane Products Corporation, in 2001 Thermos first submitted a patent application in the United States. The application was filed internationally, in Australia, on 17 April 2002. In Australia, the OPI date, or the date when the application became available to the public, was 11 November 2002. This Australian OPI notice was published on 17 April 2004. However, by 2004 the application status became lapsed because it did not continue to the national phase within the prescribed time. When this happens, the application is considered withdrawn from the international system.

Present Status

Currently, although the application has not proceeded or been granted a patent, it is not under opposition.
