Walmart and a glass cleaner are launching a new kind of glass cleaner, a quantum glass product that promises to remove unwanted glass from the glass by re-applying a thin layer of glass fibers to the surface of the glass, effectively breaking up any unwanted particles.
The glass cleaner is the brainchild of quantum engineer John Chiang, who is the head of the research team at the company Quantum Glass, Inc. Quantum Glass has also been working with the Glass Institute of California and the California Institute of Technology.
The company said it was testing its new glass cleaner at two stores in California and New York.
Walmart’s announcement comes amid a nationwide backlash against glass.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission said in January that nearly half of all cases of food-related injury were related to glass.
Consumers are also being more cautious about purchasing food at the grocery store and grocery stores are increasingly replacing plastic bags and other packaging with micro-plastic bags that don’t adhere to the same rules as regular plastic bags.
Glass and micro-pets also pose a threat to pets and their owners.
Glass is commonly used in electronics, such as cameras, and is also commonly used to seal windows and doors.
Chiang, a former researcher at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, has been working on a glass-like substance that would be more effective in breaking up glass and other objects than other micro-beads.
The micro-pet has the ability to capture particles in the glass and apply a thin film of glass fiber to it.
This film is not a polymer, but rather, it is a layer of fine-grained glass fibers that can be attached to glass or other micro materials to break up particles, Chiang said.
This material is similar to the glass that people buy at grocery stores.
While some of Chiang’s research has focused on breaking up plastic, Chiahuang said he has also started experimenting with glass-based micro-carpet cleaners and other glass cleaners.
