Micron Products, Inc. Awarded U.S. Patent

Posted on: 17 Jul 18

FITCHBURG, Mass., July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micron Products, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Micron Solutions, Inc. (NYSE American:MICR), (together “Micron” or “the Company”) announces today that the Company has been notified by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that the Company will be awarded a patent for an invention which improves the high-low pressure system in 40MM M212 casings used in military, law enforcement and other markets.  Under a multi-year exclusive supply agreement with Security Devices International, Inc. (TSX-V:SDZ) (OTCQB:SDEV), (“SDI”), the patent rights and obligations are shared equally.  

Salvatore Emma, President of Micron Products commented, “Micron has been manufacturing 40 millimeter casings for SDI with our patented pressure system which improves the accuracy and velocity of projectiles using the 40mm casing. SDI was the first company in the industry to adopt the improved system and the results are impressive.”    

Both the U.S. and foreign militaries have started to use less lethal weapons as their missions have expanded to include domestic crowd control as well as assisting and supporting developing nation states.  As the military is tasked with interacting with civilian populations, the demand for effective less-lethal weapons is growing exponentially.

Mr. Emma concluded, “We are delighted to be the exclusive manufacturer to SDI and we are currently working with them to develop new and innovative products for their markets.”
