Next Big Thing in Plasma – Water Repellant Phones

May 4, 2012

Watch an amazing video showing the P2i coating  repel water.  P2i is the world leader in liquid repellent plasma nano-coating technology. It was established in 2004 to commercialize liquid-repellent treatments developed by the UK’s Ministry of Defence. Now on a commercial-scale, P2i’s patented pulsed plasma process has been successfully applied to a wide range of products in a wide range of markets including Lifestyle, Electronics, Life Sciences, Military & Institutional and Filtration & Energy.based

In consumer sectors, the presence of P2i’s technology is indicated either by ion-mask™, its brand for Lifestyle (including footwear and accessories), or Aridion™, its brand for Electronics. See http://www.p2i.com for more information. Aridion™ is P2i’s revolutionary liquid repellent nano-coating for Electronics. It provides unbeatable protection against corrosion damage, reducing warranty failure and repair costs and ultimately increasing user confidence. Aridion™ is applied using a special pulsed ionized gas (plasma), which is created within a vacuum chamber, to attach a nanoscopic polymer layer – one thousand times thinner than a human hair – to the hearing aid. This dramatically lowers the product’s surface energy, so that when humidity, sweat or oleos substances come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off.

Plus, because Aridion™ can coat every aspect of a finished product at the nanoscopic level, it protects much more thoroughly than alternative approaches where individual product components are treated prior to assembly. The result is a truly durable liquid repellent coating that does not affect the product’s look, feel or delicate acoustic properties.
