The WaterBlock™ Advantage
HzO WaterBlock™ technology offers an ideal shield for electronic devices by providing protection against accidental submersion while maintaining the aesthetics of the device. WaterBlock™ is applied from the inside out, leaving no coating or residue on external surfaces to damage visual appeal or touch.
The coating process offered by other companies sprays a thin hydrophobic coating on both the interior and exterior of the device which can aid in driving away light splashes to the device, but leave microscopic gaps and openings that allow water, humidity and moisture to eventually seep through and damage the internal sensitive circuitry, especially when submerged.
Today’s consumers demand that electronic devices perform well in sustained submersion tests. Although waterproof cases can provide submersion protection, the consumer risks catastrophic failure if the case’s seals crack or become disjared from impact. By creating a physical barrier between the electronics and the invading water, the WaterBlock™ coating is capable of an IPX7 equivalent rating similar to waterproof cases, but instead of keeping water out of the device’s shell, it keeps it out of the electronic circuitry itself, acting as a protective case on the inside of the device. WaterBlock™ has even proven to be an effective redundant protection for traditional mechanical seals. HzO WaterBlock™ truly is the ideal protection solution against liquids, small debris and moisture on the market today.
