Don’t you believe it’s somewhere unfair to submerge or douse your delicate mobile phone into water that doesn't even know how to skinny-dip? Well, it certainly is – especially when your communication and entertainment tool is one of your favorite pets. Probably having kept this into consideration, Daikin Industries have developed new water and moisture resistant coating that helps people prevent their handset from drowning.
Mainly for use on the circuit boards of mobile phones, the technology enables mobile phones to experience baseline in waterproofing to everyday standards. Although it does not provide full waterproof protection, users can still safeguard their fine-grained solutions from water and moisture. The environmentally friendly coating simply dips the devices’ integrated circuit boards in the fluorinated solvent which eventually dries out as a thin film.
However, the coating goes arid in about a minute or so at room temperature, which takes effect right after that. For those unaware, the waterproof coating is accomplished by employing a film just 0.1 micron to 1 micron thick which also involves dissolving of fluoropolymer in a fluorinated solvent. Yet again those who aren’t really versed with the concept, fluoropolymer basically features no flammability and absolute low toxicity.
Taking advantage of that, Daikin Industries have produced a coating that sustains environmental friendliness. So definitely, it is a remarkable development in technology which aims at minimizing the risk of phones malfunctioning if they happen to get dropped in water.
Although the company is presently working on the product, the new water and moisture resistant coating is anticipated to debut commercially around December this year. However, the pricing details are kept under wraps for now. So hopefully, none of us will now have to be on pins and needles considering that a reliable method (which protects against water and moisture) is just about to buzz the markets in the near future.
