LAS VEGAS (January 10, 2013)HZO, Inc., creator of a revolutionary nano-coating technology that offers water damage protection for electronic devices, has teamed up with modcrew, Ltd., a Japanese corporation that provides repair services for mobile devices, to explore aftermarket nanocoating for iPhone mobile devices in Japan.

Following HZO’s award-winning launch at CES 2012, the fast growing start-up has successfully marketed its technology primarily to manufacturers.

“Modcrew is an excellent partner to launch this exploration in Japan,” said Paul Clayson, President and CEO of HZO, Inc. “We will be working with Modcrew to develop retail services to support HZO’s superior technology and will be expanding HZO direct to consumers.”

“We are pleased to meet the high consumer demand for aftermarket HZO protection of mobile devices,” said Kou Ohnuma, CEO Modcrew. “We will be delivering this superior HZO technology to Japanese consumers through Lucky Collection Co., Ltd.”

HZO offers a thin, impenetrable nano-coating layer of protection from drip to dunk – including full submersion. Through a proprietary vapor deposition application process, the protective nano-coating works from the inside out to shield even the most intricate parts of electronic devices. It forms a seamless barrier that is invisible to the naked eye and 100 times the thickness of traditional plasma coatings.
