P2I Previews Advanced IPX7 Dunkable™ Technology at Mobile

With millions of users already benefiting from the company's splashproof liquid repellent nano-coating on Motorola and TCL Communication smartphones and tablets, P2i is unveiling its new, Dunkable™ technology at Mobile World Congress.

Hampshire, UK, February 28, 2013 - Dunkable™ is a game-changing hydrophobic barrier which allows electronics to function in liquids for an extended period of time. Differentiating itself from the splashproof technology, which is a hydrophobic layer approximately 1000 times thinner than a human hair, the Dunkable™ barrier enables manufacturers to reach an IPx7 water protection rating.

Dr. Stephen Coulson, Chief Technical Officer, P2i, said: “P2i recognizes the market need for a truly dunkable technology which goes beyond protecting against accidental splashes and spills. We have already proven on tens of millions of electronic devices that our everyday splashproof technology significantly reduces water ingress and dramatically increases reliability.

However those needing protection against full submergence for a significant period of time, require something extra. P2i’s cutting-edge Dunkable™ technology provides just this by preventing long lasting corrosion and water damage. Make no mistake; this technology signals the end of extra gaskets, membranes, snubbers, clumsy plastic jack plugs and ugly watertight cases. Dunkable™ is IPx7 without changing the look and feel of a smartphone.”
As a commercially successful innovator, P2i operates in five key market sectors, including Electronics, Lifestyle and Filtration.

It was first established in 2004 to commercialize liquid repellent technologies originally designed to protect soldiers’ military uniforms from chemical attack. P2i has an extended patent portfolio enabling the development of further technologies and application methods. Today, P2i operates as a global outfit, with expertise extending across the technology, engineering and implementation processes.

Carl Francis, Chief Executive Officer, P2i, said: “Dunkable™ represents the very latest advancement in nanocoating technology for the smartphone and tablet market. With over 60 patent families behind us, and dedicated teams researching functional nano-coatings such as anti-scratch, the future is very bright for P2i and our customers.”

Over the past two years P2i has received recognition for the successful leadership and commercialization of its nano-coating technologies through a great variety of industry awards and has been shortlisted for GSMA’s Global Mobile Awards 2013 in the ‘Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough’ category.

Cold plasma or non-equilibrium plasma is a plasma which is not in thermodynamic equilibrium, because the electron temperature is much hotter than the temperature of heavy species (ions and neutrals). As only electrons are thermalized, their Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution is very different than the ion velocity distribution. When one of the velocities of a species does not follow a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, the plasma is said to be non-Maxwellian. The global Cold
