Does your business want to build safer, more reliable products that countless lives depend on?
Are you looking for a partner who will put blood, sweat, and tears into protecting your medical electronics from liquid threats? Do you want to reduce risk and set your product apart?
For medical device manufacturers and designers (MDMs), reliability is a differentiator in a marketplace brimming with growth and competition.
The medical devices market is expanding to meet the demands of chronic disease and an aging population. By 2025, this global industry will be valued at $612.7 billion. But as opportunity increases, so does the level of competition.
To rise above the rest, you’ll need to offer a product that your customers can truly depend on.
After all, in this market, there is no room for “good enough” devices. If a connected, smart speaker breaks, that’s an annoyance; if a glucose monitor fails, that’s a crisis. Meeting medical technology’s standards of excellence is a challenge, but designing products that rise to the occasion is possible.
Challenges for Medical Excellence
You can provide more reliability by protecting the electronics that run and manage medical devices from physical harm.
Water, sweat, bodily fluids, medicine, and cleaning liquids are just as destructive to electronics as they are common. Liquids can short circuit devices, resulting in immediate failure, or they can cause corrosion, which creates a more extended, unexpected breakdown.
A single splash or spill can cause devices to fail, resulting in loss of data, product returns, and potential harm to consumers. Protecting your devices is more important than ever, but the real challenge is that traditional methods used to do this fall short.
Common Medical Electronics Failure Conditions
- Bodily Fluids
- Cleaning Liquids
Overcoming the Challenges With Medical Device Conformal Coatings
Enclosures, such as cases and seals, can easily break after a drop or simply wear out with time, making long-term reliability impossible. Meanwhile, typical conformal coatings can be bulky and heavy and require curing to be effective.
Overcoming these challenges can be as simple as reaching out to HZO. We offer next-generation thin-film conformal coatings that take protection to a higher level.
We offer four types of coatings that protect your electronics:
Reduce Risk with True Protection
Our diverse product lines offer a variety of benefits to suit most needs. After partnering with us, you will come to believe that if it doesn’t say HZO, you aren’t truly protected.
Don’t just take our word for it – check the record. Since our inception, there hasn’t been a single return attributed to coating issues. Our global customers, Fortune 100 companies, and trailblazing businesses are valuable to us, which is why we never let them down.
Delivering Real Value
Along with our proven history, we bring serious benefits to the table that no other vendors can provide. Choose us, and you’ll be able to:
Select The Most Convenient, Efficient Solution
Choose between our Factory-in-Factory business model or our coating as a service offering, where we coat your devices in one of our manufacturing facilities.
Reduce Uncertainty With Prescriptive Outcomes
Our team of dedicated application engineers has the expertise to meet specified outcomes. You’ll never have to feel unsure that you made the right choice.
Keep Costs In Check
Corrosion-related recalls, repairs, and warranty claims can be costly. Proactively prevent these expenses with protection that can stand up to sweat, bodily fluids, and blood that is thicker than water.
Segments We Serve
1 in 11 adults worldwide is currently living with diabetes. Diabetes devices, including glucose meters and insulin pumps, have come a long way. But as advanced as these devices are, they are still vulnerable to splashes and spills.
Diagnostic Imaging Devices
The global market for diagnostic imaging is currently estimated to be around $40 billion. We protect devices such as EEG analyzers that are exposed to bodily fluids and water every day.
Hearing and Vision Aids
Over 900 million people will experience hearing loss by 2050. The electrical components inside these high demand devices can be as small as a pencil eraser. For parts this small, bulky mechanical seals and thick conformal coatings are not an option.
Other Medical Devices
Our protection can extend to different types of medical devices as well, including dilators, blood mixing and weighing devices, “drug delivery devices,” and catheters.
Each MDM has different requirements and needs, which is why we offer custom solutions to meet your most important requirements. Here at HZO, we protect a variety of medical devices with one big thing in common: failure is not an option. Just what the doctor ordered.
