Overview of Materials Engineering and its applications and protections in the field of Intellectual Property

With the world more competitive, there is an increasing search for differentiation in products and processes by companies and inventors, who aim to increase their performance, increase productivity, and competitive advantages (as a result of tangible and intangible assets), leading to the constant need for technological changes through innovation.

Thus, in the face of the globalized market, companies are paying attention to their intangible assets, with the proper use of patents as a competitive instrument. Intellectual property, as well as patent laws, is considered to be one of the most important regulatory vehicles that promote technological innovation.

Based on the Industrial Property Law (IPL), a patent can be defined as a legal instrument that protects an invention resulting from a great research and development effort by a company or a researcher in the development of new products and technological processes, making it a safe investment, profitable and legitimate.

When we think about innovation and technology, it is inherent to also think about Materials Engineering, since one of the sectors in which it is very present is the Research and Development sector, being considered multidisciplinary engineering and responsible for researching and studying materials such as metals, ceramics, plastics and resins for industry and also possible technical improvements in their properties to apply them as needed, using just one of them or making a combination of properties, such as composite materials, to create something new. Read more
