P2i Reports that Over 8 Mn Electronic Device Users Benefit from its Protective Nano-coating

ABINGDON, UK -- P2i has proven itself to be the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology with over eight million electronic devices now benefiting from protection against water and corrosion damage.

Working directly with major electronics brands and OEMs, Aridion™ is currently applied to a range of electronic devices including cell phones, tablets and headsets. Aridion™ dramatically increases the reliability of electronic devices by reducing corrosion and electrochemical migration brought on by everyday splashes, spills and moisture.

Carl Francis, CEO, P2i comments: "P2i has experienced a year of exceptional growth and innovation. Last year at Mobile World Congress we launched a nano-coating system specifically for the high-volume mobile handset manufacturers. Now, one year on, we can say that we are on over eight million electronic devices worldwide. This validates the superiority of our technology, our high volume manufacturing capabilities, and proves P2i to be the undisputed world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology."

As the coating is applied at the nano-scale (one thousand times thinner than a human hair) it does not affect the look, feel or functionality of electronic devices. This means the coating can be applied to the whole device - internally and externally - providing superior protection. Unlike other unproven processes, the unique way in which P2i coats the electronic device ensures it is molecularly bonded to the surface, not a layering on top, so it can't rub or peel off with wear.

The protective coating could not have come at a better time according to a consumer survey carried out on the P2i booth at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. Two-thirds of consumers reported having spilt liquids on their phone, with one attendee admitting to dropping her phone in her pedicure water.
