P2i launches high-speed Splash-proof X – advanced nano coating technology to address increasing demand
Advanced processes and chemistries increase throughput by >100% and improve technical performance of flagship technology
London, UK – 9th July 2018 – P2i, the world leader in liquid repellent nano coating has announced the immediate availability of its high-speed Splash-proof X nano coating solution. With improvements made in the process that chemically bonds its patented water-resistant coating to electronic devices, OEMs can now process up to twice as many devices in the same amount of time.
P2i has already coated over 300 million smart phones with its original Splash-proof technology. Now, with world-class liquid repellent performance and over 2 times faster processing speed, Splash-proof X is geared towards even larger and higher efficiency production runs. Splash-proof X is delivering liquid resistant nano coatings to smartphones, headsets and a range of IoT devices.
In addition to the quantum-leap improvements in product efficiency the coating itself has also been upgraded, to improve contact angles, and protection against liquid ingress, while maintaining the nano thinness of the coating. The revolutionary Splash-proof X process is also Oleophobic, providing protection for sensitive components from exposure to environmental oils, grease and sweat.
Ady Moores, CEO of P2i, commented, “P2i is matching the demand for its products by investing heavily in R&D, we are working on bringing new products to market, but also dramatically improving the capabilities of existing solutions. Splash-proof has been widely utilised by the likes of Huawei and Lenovo in the protection of its devices and we look forward to seeing a new generation of smartphones leaving the production line; faster and with greater protection.”
P2i coating chambers can be found operating on five continents and is currently deploying a significant capacity of its Splash-proof X machines into the Indian sub-continent. P2i estimates that facility and utility costs can be reduced by up to 50%, with the increased daily machine capacity of Splash-proof X significantly reducing the Total Cost of Ownership to customers.
P2i’s patented pulsed plasma deposition process provides the highest levels of liquid repellency by delivering hydrophobic nano coatings on entire 3D products, on the inside and out. Our functional nano coatings provide protection spanning from humidity and weather, to splashes and spills and even accidental submersion. We tailor our technology to suit specific devices: their target market, performance requirements and levels of potential liquid damage they will be exposed to.
