From smartphones to bluetooth headsets, P2i delivers reliability and quality to otherwise vulnerable electronics, ensuring companies and consumers alike remain connected and can go about their daily lives without fear of damage to their products.
P2i has treated hundreds of millions of smartphones and is the industry leader in smartphone water protection.
A full-device Splash-proof treatment reduces the failure rates of all components with a single process. Reduced warranty returns and R&D costs provide a proven ROI for OEMs, whilst also providing advantages to network operators and insurance providers within the sector.
An electrically insulating barrier coating on the PCBA eliminates water damage to critical components and allows manufacturers to reduce scrap and improve yield rate, whilst also producing more reliable products for end customers.
With advancements in miniaturization, battery technology and connectivity, wearable electronics play a significant role in day-to-day life. Devices including health and well-being trackers provide entertainment and feedback to consumers 24/7, so it is essential that these sensitive electronics must be able to “go where we go” and be protected against the elements.
P2i protection provides significant benefits for wearable devices in both reliability and functionality. Splash-proof protects against the damaging oils and salts contained within sweat, and guards against damage from splashes and spills encountered in daily use.
P2i’s Barrier coating goes one step further – protecting the entire PCBA against water immersion damage and delivers a reworkable, sustainable solution to the water protection challenges many manufacturers face.
With the global hearables market expected to exceed 40 billion USD in 2020, consumer demand for headsets is substantial and continues to grow. There is fierce competition to differentiate products, provide excellent customer experiences and deliver sustainable, environmentally friendly products. And the challenges these devices face from consumer behaviours are significant, with products being exposed to sweat, rain and other environmental hazards.
P2i coatings provide excellent benefits in terms of customer experience, sustainability and product differentiation. P2i protects against environmental challenges, provides reworkable, sustainable manufacturing processes and ensures an excellent user experience through maintaining audio quality and performance.
The growth in the smart speaker market over the last few years has been phenomenal, with over 100 million units shipped globally in 2019. But with this, the number of consumers using smart speakers in steamy or hazardous environments around the home has also increased.
The full device treatment provided by P2i Splash-proof coating increases device longevity and offers added benefits for smart speakers. In addition to protection from accidental splashes and spills, the coating protects the fabric speaker from oils, soiling and staining.
