What if you could reduce repairs and warranty costs while increasing customer satisfaction?

How would it feel to work with a company that uses proven waterproofing manufacturing processes? Does the thought of tens of millions of dollars in damaged brand reputation and product returns keep you up at night? If this is the case, augment and empower your organization with the scalable, reliable electronic protection of thin-film coatings.

Marketplace

On average, Americans check their phones every 12 minutes. Our current lifestyles are dependent on these devices to keep us connected. It’s hard to remember life without this technology at our fingertips – until the phone glitches or stops functioning completely in the middle of our daily activities and we find ourselves without the electronics we depend on.

Although consumer electronics are convenient and improve our daily lives, the circuitry inside devices is fragile and prone to failure due to prevailing environmental conditions. The repercussions of water damaged devices are overwhelming. HZO’s electronic waterproofing technology will make these costs and damages a thing of the past.

It is estimated that over 300 million phones are destroyed every year, costing the industry over $100 billion.

Challenges For A Connected World

Life’s ordinary circumstances are detrimental to today’s devices. These conditions include usage in the rain, exposure to dust in a pocket or purse, a spill from a beverage, or sweat exporsure to name a few.

If your organization is experiencing excessive returns, exorbitant repair requests, or warranty claims as a result of damage from exposure to these conditions, this can be a considerable challenge.

All outdoor protection is not created equal. We have seen through our research, that some manufacturers deliver “good-enough” electronic protection for labs, but not for life.

HZO recognizes these repeated challenges, which is why we built the processes, acquired the skills, and accumulated the resources to safeguard your products with effective protection through our thin-film coatings.

Segments We Serve

Over 90.5 million people own an eReader of some kind.

Handheld Devices

Beyond battery life, water protection is the most requested feature in a tablet or eReader product. Unlike a battery that can be recharged, liquid damage is typically permanent.

eReaders are not the only handheld devices at risk. Wireless headsets skyrocketed in popularity recently, with tens of millions sold yearly. These devices are subject to sweat and moisture, creating some of the harshest conditions that handheld devices encounter. HZO’s waterproofing technology puts an end to these concerns; we’ve had zero customer warranty claims attributed to coating issues.  

Wearable Devices

The printed circuit boards found in fitness trackers, smartwatches, and cell phones can be exposed to sweat, splashes, steam in saunas, and other harmful substances. Each of these devices tracks data that can give us real-time information about our vital statistics, fitness progress, and overall health.

Device failure due to moisture ingress can cause increased warranty cost, logistics and repairs as well as tarnishing of brand value.

Currently a $2.66B industry, fitness trackers are projected to increase to $3.33B by 2022.

Revenue from smart home security components is predicted to go from $10.75 billion to $28.20 billion by 2023.

Safety and Security

When it comes to safety and security, no price can be placed on the peace of mind knowing that your electronic locks, video doorbells, outdoor cameras, and security systems will function when it matters most. Many security cameras are exposed to outdoor elements 24/7. Having any of these devices fail due to exposure to moisture, dust, pollution, corrosive substances, and chemicals can cost valuable information and compromise safety and security.

Safeguard your bottom line by ensuring safety and security devices reliably perform with thin-film nano coatings for electronic devices.

Why HZO?

Whether your protection needs require an industry staple solution or the most novel thin-film formulation, HZO’s Spectrum of Protection™ can deliver to the most demanding requirements and meet your production scale with dependable results.

Benefit from fewer returns, increased customer satisfaction, and improved brand reputation that separates you from the competition. Contact us today for customized protection for your unique needs.
