P2i’s plasma coating technology provides comprehensive liquid and environmental protection for electronic components and products across smart ecosystems. From inter-connected home appliances to logistics and smart cities: P2i delivers reliability and quality to otherwise vulnerable electronics ensuring companies and consumers alike remain connected and part of “always-on” ecosystems.
The online shopping revolution has changed the face of the retail industry and logistics is now a key ingredient in e-commerce and the customer experience. Low efficiency and disordered logistics cause almost 25% of customer complaints in this sector. Both e-commerce and logistics industries are evolving towards a flexible, scalable and future-oriented technology to make them more effective and efficient.
New generations of IoT, such as Narrow Band IOT and GPS tracking, bring real-time data to both service providers and consumers, but gathering this data relies upon “always-on systems”. Their frequent exposure to extreme environmental conditions such as heavy rain and sea air can compromise or even destroy these delicate electronics.
P2i protects the electronic components within logistic chains, ensuring real-time data can continue to be gathered and used by both manufacturers and consumers. This ensures visibility, traceability and reliability from shipment to delivery.
With around 70% of the world’s population expected to live in cities by 2050, the world is set to become an “always-on”, “always-connected” society. With rapid proliferation of electronics and technology, devices are being implemented into all areas of our everyday lives to improve efficiency and safety, as well as to reduce the cost and impact to the environment. Spanning from the spaces we work in, to the roads we drive on, the places we spend our free time and even in and around our own homes, electronic devices have become common place and will continue to increase in number.
Key to the adoption of these embedded systems will be reliability in all conditions 24/7. P2i offers solutions that allow smart products to operate come rain or shine, reduce failure rate, eliminate maintenance costs and increase product lifetime.
Smart home systems and devices not only provide convenience but also peace of mind for homeowners against threats or dangers. The smart home market includes a range of products: From devices that perform everyday tasks and those used to automatically control household appliances, to securing the property through cameras and smart locks. But consumer satisfaction for convenience and security depends on the reliability of these products, therefore protection against the environment plays a really important role, no matter where consumers choose to locate or use their devices in and around their homes.
P2i protection helps increase the product lifetime and reliability of devices, whether they are used inside or outside the home. This allows homeowners to enjoy the convenience and peace of mind smart-home systems and devices provide.
