As summer approaches, many find themselves sitting by the pool, drifting on a boat, or relaxing on the beach wanting to use their cell phones or electronic gadgets. However, this usually leaves them at risk for water damaging these devices.
A new liquid repellent technology introduced by P2i is now available through major electronic brands and manufacturers and will protect your devices from water damage. P2i discovered that 47% of Americans risk their cell phones by exposing them to these different waterside scenarios. This is where the Aridion nanocoating comes to the rescue.
The new technology, 1,000 times thinner than a human hair, is applied to your electronic device in a vacuum chamber so that it does not affect the way it looks or feels. When the water comes in contact with your device, instead of dispersing on the surface, it will form a droplet and roll right off.
I didn’t believe it either until I witnessed the demonstration at CEA LineShows held in New York from June 26 to June 28. The video below captures the demonstration performed by the representatives at the show. They took two tissues, one with the coating and one traditional tissue, and dropped water on each. They even submerged the tissues in a bowl of water. Check out the video to see the results.
While this technology can be used to protect our luxury gadgets, P2i also kept in mind the benefits of this coating on hearing aids. In a study done by the company, hearing aids that were coated with Aridion were protected against corrosion 100% of the time. This compared to untreated hearing aids that were only protected 20% of the time.
Other products that Aridion is being used to treat are footwear, eyeglasses, medical devices, and engineered glass. The company is learning that even 3D objects can be successfully treated with Aridion
