This Nanocoating Might Be the Waterproofing Solution You’ve Been Seeking
We’ve all had that panic moment when an expensive electronic device such as our phone, AirPods, or wireless speaker goes tumbling into the water, and we realize it’s probably ruined forever. Salt Lake City-based HZO hopes to cure that panic, not just for consumers but commercial technology users, with its solution for water-vulnerable devices: a thin nanotechnology coating that protects electronics from moisture.
In this new episode of the Software and Technology Podcast, host Brandon Morse caught up with HZO’s Chief Commercial Officer Stephen Gold to discuss this revolutionary turn in device protection.
There’s no doubt that personal electronic devices, ranging from smartphones to hearing aids even, have become ubiquitous in our lives.
“We’re at a point in time where it’s critical that we can depend on these devices independent of whatever hazard or accident might happen,” Gold said.
But even devices that are supposed to be water-resistant are still vulnerable because protection means different things to different manufacturers.
“We believe protection starts with the inside, from the electronic itself outward,” Gold said.
HZO’s ultra-thin protective nanocoatings are applied by manufacturers and device makers on top of devices to protect it from dust, dirt, water, or other liquid.
In this episode, Gold also discussed the industries and sectors that could benefit from waterproofing technology and what to expect from this technology to come. “I think it’s going to become second nature to us that these electronics will be unequivocally protected in a way that we expect it to operate in any environment.”
