Your Mobile Will Never Fear Water AgainLiquipel Unveils Nanotechnology to Protect iPhones, Droids and More at CES 2012 (January 09, 2012)
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/12 -- Smart phones can now be permanently and safely protected against any exposure to water -- even complete immersion -- thanks to the revolutionary process developed by Liquipel, already nominated for a 2012 Edison Award.
"People are taking their iPhones, Droids and other phones with them wherever they go," said Danny McThail, Liquipel's co-president. "Their greatest fear has been getting splashed, not to mention accidentally dropping their device into the water or getting caught in the rain. Now, thanks to our process, those fears can safely evaporate."
Using the latest advancements in nano-coatings, Liquipel's patent-pending process creates a liquid-repellant coating that is 1,000 times thinner than a human hair but will last the life of the device. It not only exceeds cell-phone manufacturers' requirements but actually creates a new category for water-safe electronics with a rating of IP-X7 certification (3 feet under water for 30 minutes), making it the highest performing protective coating in the industry.
The protective process can be introduced to fully assembled devices or integrated into the manufacturing line itself. The device is placed in a temperature-controlled vacuum chamber into which the proprietary formulation of waterproofing particles is introduced in a vapor form. Ionized particles are then added, binding the formulation to the device at the molecular level. Thirty minutes later, the process is complete.
Liquipel is virtually untraceable and will not affect nor compromise the look, feel and performance of the device.
