With the constant evolution of mobile devices, the demand for water-proof electronics and durable smartphones has significantly increased. In this article, we will explore the importance of true water resistance and how advanced conformal coatings, such as those offered by P2i, can provide superior protection for electronic devices, ensuring a sustainable and long-lasting user experience.
Understanding the IPx Scale:
To determine the level of water resistance in devices, the IPx (Ingress Protection) scale is utilized. This scale measures the device’s ability to withstand the intrusion of foreign bodies and moisture. The IPx rating consists of two numbers, with the first indicating protection against solid objects and the second denoting protection against various forms of moisture, such as drips, sprays, and submersion. It’s this second number that we focus on.
The Limitations of Mechanical Seals:
Many devices today still boast mechanical seals to prevent water ingress. While these seals offer a certain degree of protection, they are not foolproof. Incorrect assembly, shipping, accidental drops, and exposure to environmental elements can compromise their effectiveness, leading to corrosion damage and device failure. This leads to reduced product life cycles and a greater impact on our environment.
Introducing Advanced Conformal Coatings:
P2i recognizes that true water protection requires more than just physical barriers. Our innovative ultra-thin barrier coating technology goes beyond conventional methods by providing comprehensive protection to every essential part of the device. Our hydrophobic coatings form a molecular bond with the surface, enabling water to easily exit the device without causing damage.
Unrivaled Water Resistance:
P2i’s conformal coatings offer unparalleled water resistance and protection against corrosion. Even if the device’s seal is breached, our coatings repel water from the internals, minimizing the risk of corrosion damage. This ensures the longevity and reliability of the device, even in challenging liquid environments.
Driving Sustainable and Cost-Effective Electronics:
In addition to delivering superior water-proof electronics, P2i’s conformal coatings contribute to sustainable electronics and lower the total cost of ownership. By extending the lifespan of devices and minimizing the need for frequent replacements, our coatings help reduce electronic waste and promote a circular economy.
