PureForge, a corporation that develops innovative products using its revolutionary Atomic-Forging technology, announces the issuance of U.S. Patent Number 8,084,089 on December 27, 2011. The patent protects the PureForge Atomic-Forging technology as applied to a braking system, the process that uses a lightning-like effect to produce an ultra-hard and wear-resistant metal surface.
PureForge uses the Atomic-Forging process to manufacture brake rotors that outlast, outperform, and create less toxic brake dust than any other current automotive brake offering. The company currently markets their brake technology and products to law enforcement vehicle fleets.
"We are very pleased with the issuance of our initial patent focused on the use of our Atomic-Forging Technology and are diligently working to build a formidable IP portfolio in this specific field of use," said Nathan K. Meckel, co-founder of PureForge and inventor of the Atomic-Forging technology. While this is the first issued patent for PureForge, the patent process is nothing new for Meckel, who has received nine U.S. patents and multiple international patents over the course of his metallurgy career.
PureForge has multiple patents pending with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as well as several international applications, and is anticipating the issuance of additional patents in the next few months.
