KITCHENER —
With more technology installed on the car\'s windshield, the cost of replacing broken or broken glass has increased by 600.
As a result, Alchemy is a startup located in the building speed garage of the leather factory in the center of kidina, with high hopes for its ultra-thin coating, which protects the windshield from rocks and other debris.
The product, called ExoShield, looks like a roll of transparent plastic, developed by nanotech engineers at the University of Waterloo.
Think of it as a huge phone.
Screen protector, but for your windshield, \"says Khanjan Desai, a colleague from alchemy.
Founder and CEO.
\"This is a thin, transparent film that is attached to the outside of the windshield like a window tone, designed to increase the crash resistance of the windshield six times,\" said Desai . \".
ExoShield was released publicly last summer.
It is sold in 87 stores in 25 cities across North America.
Alchemy said that the price of ExoShield, including installation, ranges from $299, and for complex installations including warranty upgrades, the price is $1,099.
The startup believes its sales will break even and become cash --
Desai said the flow was positive this summer.
\"It\'s huge, but it\'s after 3 years of development, testing and market strategy,\" Desai said . \".
\"Alchemy passed the Y Combinator accelerator in California in the summer of 2014 and raised $1.
$8 million in funding.
The startup employs nine people.
Desai, cooperation in alchemy
Founder chongshen began working together in 2013 in the fourth year of the University of Waterloo.
In their last project, they developed a solution sprayed on the windshield to prevent frost and ice from forming overnight.
After graduating in 2013, they were one of UW\'s first nanotech students to start a business.
They changed.
Anti-frost spray
Frost coating, long-
Long lasting film covering the windshield.
It works fine, but the salt, sand and pebbles trapped on or under the wiper have damaged it.
So again, they changed the technology, focusing on protecting the windshield from debris and cracks caused by rocks and debris, rather than preventing the vehicle from freezing and freezing on the glass when it was parked outside.
The change of focus is like the driver.
Auxiliary technology is installed on the windshield
Cameras and sensors that help drivers navigate.
Desai said it would take about $300 to replace the windshield on the 2016 Toyota Corolla, but for the 1,700 model it increased to $2017, because the technology installed on the windshield must be re-calibrated after the windshield is replaced.
\"So this leads all these new owners to deal with new fees that they don\'t even know about,\" said Desai . \".
Alchemy wants to expand the distribution of ExoShield and sell transparent films to fleet owners and insurance companies.
Due to the increased cost of insurance claims for replacement of windshield, Desai expects the demand for the outer cover to increase.
In the medium term, Alchemy wants to develop technology to protect cameras, sensors and other sensitive technologies in the driverassist systems.
In the long run, startups think nanotechnology can be used to make polymers
Desai said the basic material or acrylic material for this glass windshield.
\"They are impact-resistant and lightweight alternatives to glass and ideally this will never break,\" said Desai . \".
\"In addition, you will reduce so much weight on a car, which will be huge in terms of efficiency.
