Mr Stephen Gold, Chief Commercial Officer
The proliferation of electronics, from smartphones to autonomous cars, has reset the standard for device protection when it comes to waterproofing. What was once a feature of niche products, ruggedized solutions, or high-end consumer electronics, is quickly becoming a mainstream staple. Take for example flagship mobile phones featuring water protection which grew over 62% from 2012 to 2018. But not all solutions are created equal, and only meeting the IPX standard is insufficient to ensure device durability. It's further compounded by industry trends toward miniaturization which demands tighter tolerances, the ability to coat efficiently at scale, and significantly extended device longevity - 2X+. Come hear the alternatives your organization faces when selecting smart protective coatings to safeguard your electronics against the most demanding environments?
HZO has been part of defining the next generation of standards in the protective coating for some of the most significant players in the world for devices you use every day. Get the inside track on the five things every company must know about waterproofing to stay competitive!
