P2i's Successful Nano-coating on Hearing Aids to Now Protect Electronic Devices from Damage

Published on 2012-04-11. Author : SpecialChem

ABINGDON, UK & BOSTON, USA -- P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, is building on the successful integration of the Aridion™ technology in the Hearing Aid sector to implement the technology onto other electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets and head sets.

Approximately 60% of hearing aid devices produced globally are now protected by Aridion™. The ultrathin coating prevents the buildup of corrosion damage brought on by sweat, moisture and liquids. Noting the game-changing benefits, other manufacturers are getting on board, as P2i is in discussion with a number of leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). In October, Aridion™ was launched with a major handset manufacturer and is now protecting over two and a half million phones and tablets for this brand.

Dr. Stephen Coulson, CTO, P2i comments: "The Hearing Aid sector has been crucial to the success of P2i as a company. It is in this industry that we have already proven our ability to treat delicate electronics without compromising the functionality, look or feel of the device. With this validation, we have attracted the attention of mobile phone manufactures and rolled out a full scale high volume industrial process. This continuing research and development will enable us to provide further support to the Hearing Aid sector as we continue to grow in 2012 and beyond.
