Unmatched
protection—
flexible and scalable for any application.

HZO provides protection solutions for manufacturers and brands seeking to meet the consumer and business demand for product protection. OEMs and ODMs engaged with HZO are able to maintain flexibility and innovation in product design while achieving scalable, end-to-end manufacturing solutions. The reality of a warrantable, protected electronic is within reach with HZO.

Proven technology and processes.

HZO has accomplished what few companies can: a turn-key solution for coating and protecting any electronic device or component. Combining expertise in materials science, vacuum deposition, laser technology, equipment and automation, HZO’s proprietary coating and processing solutions are unmatched in the industry.

HZO primarily utilizes Parylene to provide a robust barrier of protection to any surface it is applied to. This transparent, microns-thin coating has a legacy of supreme protection, but a troubled past of mass application. HZO has broken the barrier by developing proprietary equipment and processes that harness the protective attributes of Parylene in a high throughput production environment. This achievement is a first for the protection industry and sets HZO apart from all other solutions.

The process of Parylene application is simple. Components to be protected are placed inside HZO’s equipment chamber and exposed to a process of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) where the Parylene coating is applied in vapor form. The vapor coating encapsulates the device in a microns-thin protective barrier, no curing needed.

 

Manufacturing quality
every check of the way.

Quality is critical for every unit we protect. HZO takes each customer's products through a rigorous validation checklist to ensure we've engineered the ideal protection solution in terms of durability, ease of manufacturing and cost. Our team of R&D, design analysts and engineers engage in the following steps:

  • Project analysis and assessment

    The team assesses the supplied units and work directly with the manufacturing engineers in order to understand the design of the product, and to identify potential stopgaps and problem areas.

  • Custom application strategy development

    We develop a customized plan and process for the device, ensuring that our team can optimally execute the coating process for that particular unit.

  • Quality control and maintenance

    HZO’s quality control engineers run a meticulous check on the units to ensure complete functionality and make required modifications.

  • Process documentation and product delivery

    Our team then drafts a detailed document of the entire process and ship the units back to the customer for additional testing.

  • Engineering and production consultation

    In some cases we will work with companies to help modify the engineering of their products in order to optimize the coating process and ensure exact performance standards.

  • Production support

    HZO will be on hand during production to offer any support needed to ensure a swift and quality manufacturing process.
