P2i unveils details of commercial-scale liquid repellent nano-coating machine at Mobile World Congress

Abingdon, UK | Posted on February 11th, 2011

Aridion™, P2i's revolutionary liquid repellent nano-coating technology for consumer electronics, will soon be available to high-volume mobile handset manufacturers with the launch of the first high-capacity Aridion™ processing machine at Mobile World Congress.

The Aridion™ 400 applies an invisible nanoscopic polymer layer to fully-assembled handsets using a special pulsed ionized gas (plasma), which is created at room temperature within a vacuum chamber. The plasma penetrates the phone - both internally and externally - dramatically lowering its surface energy, so that when liquids come into contact with it, they form beads and simply roll off. The result is a dramatic reduction in corrosion and electrochemical migration, even after shower, salt-fog and water submersion testing.

The Aridion™ 400 can treat up to 1,000 phones in a single process run, allowing for cost-effective and efficient treatment of handsets immediately prior to packaging. It has been designed to integrate seamlessly and effortlessly with existing assembly lines in high volume manufacturing environments and can be operated at the touch of a single button.

"Aridion™ provides unbeatable protection against liquid damage for high performance smartphones, delivering better looks and performance for consumers, and minimizing warranty failure and repair costs for manufacturers", said Dr Stephen Coulson, Chief Technical Officer at P2i. "Our Aridion™ technology is already providing protection for more than three million hearing aid users worldwide. We're delighted to unveil details of the new processing machine at Mobile World Congress and anticipate significant interest from handset manufacturers attending the show."
