DryWired Provides IPX7 Waterproof Nanocoating to 2014 CES Best Wireless Handset Winner SpareOne Plus Emergency Phones

SpareOne Plus Emergency phone becomes the world’s first wireless device certified IPX7 waterproof without mechanical seals

 

Las Vegas, Nevada – (January 7, 2014) – Today, Los Angeles, CA based nanotechnology firm DryWired, announces its partnership with Irvine, CA headquartered XPAL Power to provide their multi-award winning SpareOne Plus Emergency phone with DryWired’s revolutionary 101X liquid nanocoating protection.  As part of the collaboration, DryWired has begun nanocoating the latest SpareOne Plus Emergency phone with the proprietary 101X fluoropolymer coating in order to make the AA battery operated wireless devices IPX7 waterproof and corrosion resistant.

First introduced at the Mobile Asia Expo in June 2013, DryWired’s 101X is a clear PFOA and PFOS-free fluoropolymer coating that is applied by dipping or spraying PCBs with the patented U.S. made liquid solution. In order to gain protection from water exposure and corrosion, PCBs are exposed to 101X for a few seconds and left to cure for a few minutes. The contact angle to water on surfaces coated with 101X can exceed 120 degrees.  Unlike older plasma and parylene based coatings, DryWired’s 101X fluoropolymer coating does not require expensive machinery, is extremely cost effective, scalable, FDA approved for internal medical devices and can quickly be incorporated into any manufacturing process.  In addition, UV tracer dyes can be added to the 101X solution enabling quality control personnel to verify the conformity of the coating under UV light. The 101X nanocoating is approximately 1,500 times thinner than a human hair.

DryWired called upon Santa Clara, California based Quanta Laboratories to certify their 101X liquid nanocoated SpareOne Plus Emergency Phones. After rigorous Military Standard testing, the 101X nanocoated SpareOne Plus Emergency phones were certified by Quanta as having passed the Temperature Humidity Test (Per MIL-STD-810G Method 507.5), the Salt Fog Test (Per MIL-STD-810G Method 509.5) and Water Ingress Test (Per IEC 60529 IPX7).  The extent and variety of these tests further highlights the ability of DryWired’s 101X liquid nanocoating to prolong the life of electronics subjected to a wide range of adverse conditions.

“We are excited to partner with XPAL Power and thrilled that we could find the solution they were looking for to protect their SpareOne Plus Emergency phones against accidental water exposure and corrosion. We are proud that our solution will help the reliability of SpareOne Plus Emergency phones in the harshest of weather conditions. The fact that our 101X liquid nanocoating solution achieved IPX7 certification on a wireless device with no mechanical seals is a milestone for electronics manufacturing. There is no reason why this achievement cannot be duplicated throughout the industry for other electronic devices,” said CEO and Founder of DryWired, C.C. Elchidiac.

“SpareOne has been solidified as a must-have preparedness device, through its innovation and ability to keep lines of communication open when power is completely unavailable or inaccessible.  We ventured this partnership with DryWired after our existing product sparked great interest for the phone its self to be waterproof.”  Said Alan Cymberknoh, SpareOne Product Director.  “The SpareOne Plus 101X version, will be available on a project basis, and we could not be more pleased to continue to drive innovation in partnership with DryWired.”
