New Chemical Coating Could Waterproof All Mobile Phones
Dec 31, 2007, 12:41 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Technology developed by England's Ministry of Defence can protect mobile phones from water damage. Called Ion-Mask, the technology is an invisible plasma that chemically bonds to the surface of devices. It will also fill in the small gaps and cracks to prevent water from seeping in. The chemical will repel water or moisture, causing it to bead up and roll off the surface rather than permeate the phone. Because devices such as mobile phones are often too small to fit the necessary seals to make them waterproof, Ion-Mask could serve as an alternate way to waterproof electronics. A spin-off company from the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, called P2i, is talking with three mobile phone manufacturers about using the protective coating.
