VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanotech Security Corp. (TSXV: NTS) (OTCQX: NTSFF) (“Nanotech” or the “Company”), a leading innovator in the research, creation and production of nano-optic structures and colour-shifting materials used in the banknote and brand protection markets, announces it has been granted three nanotechnology patents.

Two patents were granted in the United States and Europe and are for nano-structure array diffractive optics for motion and animation display. These patents solidify Nanotech’s diffractive-based technologies, particularly the Company’s ability to create multi-frame animations using nano-structured pixels as demonstrated in Nanotech’s LiveLogo™ security labels launched earlier this year. The third patent was granted in Europe and is for a capacitor based on ionic polymer metal composite technology. This patent demonstrates the depth of Nanotech’s IP and the Company’s ability to leverage its technology for applications beyond security features. All three patents further strengthen the Company’s nanotechnology patent portfolio by broadening protection of its proprietary intellectual property.

“These patents support and enhance the Company’s KolourOptik® technology platform,” said Troy Bullock, President and CEO of Nanotech. “We are expanding our position as leaders in nanotechnology by continuing to make significant investments in intellectual property and protecting these investments through our patent portfolio.” 

Since 2010, Nanotech has invested over $15 million dollars in nanotechnology research and development. The Company is a global leader in nanotechnology used to develop security features with 32 issued patents and 23 patents pending.
