Liquipel 2.0 Coating Will Make Your iPhone Waterproof [Video]
Liquipel today announced the second generation of their nanotechnology that waterproofs electronic devices.
The science behind Liquipel 2.0 represents significant advancements in durability, corrosion resistance and water protection. Extensive company testing has shown Liquipel 2.0 to be up to 100 times more effective than its predecessor, Liquipel 1.0, while maintaining component integrity and RF sensitivity.
"Liquipel version 2.0 is a huge advancement for super-hydrophobic nanotechnology," said Danny McPhail, Liquipel's' Head of Product Development and Co-Founder. He further stated, "The release of 2.0 represents our ongoing R&D commitment to advancing our technology and products. Innovation is the key to our success. Our customers have reconfirmed that the science behind 2.0 places us at the forefront of the industry."
Liquipel's patent-pending process creates a liquid-repellant coating, that is microscopic and forever lasting because the coating becomes a part of the device. Liquipel is virtually untraceable and will not affect, nor compromise the look, feel and performance of the device.
Managing Director Sam Winkler told Engadget that a device thoroughly treated with Liquipel 2.0 can achieve a liquid protection rating of at least IPX7: immersion at a depth of 1m for 30 minutes. The company is also now offering 4ft x 4ft "Liquipods" for shops that want to provide the Liquipel treatment themselves.
Liquipel also offers a direct to customer service which lets you send your iPhone in for treatment at a cost of $59 plus shipping.
