Stormseal founder and managing director Matthew Lennox said patent protection was one of the first things he arranged after inventing Stormseal, a polyethylene film that heat shrinks to cover damaged roofs or walls.
The product provides secure, cost-effective protection from the weather until permanent repairs can be made.
Stormseal holds two patents, one covering the chemistry of the polyethylene film and the other covering the Stormseal field application method. The dual patents offer intellectual property protection for companies using the innovative product and application method. Government bodies, insurance carriers and multinationals look for trusted brands that have patent and trademark protection for their customers, Stormseal ticks those boxes.
Protecting Stormseal’s unique intellectual property has been a cornerstone of the business from day one. The film and application method are unique and highly innovative—and the company has the patents to back it up.
Unlike tarps, Stormseal does not blow away or leak. “I researched it for about three months to make sure that no one else had this idea,” Lennox said. “There was nothing else like it.”
Patents can be granted for any device, substance, method or process that is new, inventive and useful. It provides a legally enforceable right to commercially exploit the invention for the life of the patent. In Australia, where Stormseal is headquartered, standard patents are valid for 20 years, but continuous improvements allow for the patent life to be extended.
The Stormseal name and logo are also protected as registered trademarks. This helps the company’s products stand out in the marketplace and prevents other companies from using the Stormseal brand.
Stormseal patents are in place in Australia, New Zealand, the US, the UK and Europe, with patent-protection pending in China and India. Stormseal has received trademark approval in Australia, New Zealand, the US, the UK, Europe, China and India.
