P2i's Aridion™ Nano-coating Protects Over 7 Mn Electronic Devices Users from Water Damage

Published on 2012-01-13. Author : SpecialChem

ABINGDON, UK -- P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, announced that it is protecting seven million consumer electronic devices from water damage with its Aridion™ technology.

Every year, hundreds of millions of electronic devices are irreparably damaged by water worldwide. Often, these damages are not covered by insurance, leaving consumers out of pocket.

Carl Francis, CEO of P2i, comments: "The risk of accidental liquid damage is increasing at a time when the importance of the cell phone is greater than ever - making its reliability paramount. P2i can significantly improve that reliability."

As the amount of data that consumers now carry in their cell phone is more valuable than ever, being out of pocket can be the least of their worries. In addition to priceless memories like photos, videos, and texts from loved-ones, devices also have important business data - contact information, calendar appointments and other important documents.

Working directly with major electronics manufacturers and OEMs, Aridion™ is currently applied to a range of electronics devices, including cell phones, tablets, and hearing aids. On treated devices liquids simply bead up and roll off, rather than sticking to the surface causing damage.

The Aridion™ coating is one thousand times thinner than a human hair. This means that during the application process, both the internal components and external casing are coated. For the end users this means the device resists initial water ingress, as well as reduces the damage caused by water to delicate internal components.
