The genesis of HzO WaterBlock™ technology began with the vision to create emergency response communications equipment that could function in maritime environments. The original development team was driven to create electronic equipment that could operate even when wet. Their hope was that equipment, costs and human lives would all be saved if electronic devices never failed from water damage.
From this idea was born the passion to develop and commercialize advanced technology that protects electronics from the devastating effects of water—the enemy of all electronic devices. In 2009, ZAGG saw the vision of protecting electronics and helped commercialize the technology into the HzO solution. After four years, the world was introduced to Waterblock™ technology—an advanced nano-coating that is impervious to the fatal effects of water, humidity, sweat and a host of other moist environments—even after prolonged exposure.
Today, HzO’s highly skilled scientists continue to apply state-of-the-art practices and processes to bring the world WaterBlock™—a clear, nearly invisible coating that envelops itself around a device’s components, offering it maximum protection from water.
