Spray on liquid glass

Just read this interesting news article. Has anyone actually seen this for sale or in use?

Spray-on liquid glass is about to revolutionize almost everything

The liquid glass coating is breathable, which means it can be used on plants and seeds. Trials in vineyards have found spraying vines increases their resistance to fungal diseases, while other tests have shown sprayed seeds germinate and grow faster than untreated seeds, and coated wood is not attacked by termites.

Sounds to me like a variation of DE (diatomaceous earth) in a spray binder.

RE: Spray on liquid glass

DE is much larger particle-size than nano.
What I don't see reconciled in the blurb is how it is good for plants, but yet resistant to UV.
