Sorry, toilets! Your phone ruining days are over!
You ever hear of someone being tricked into thinking the recent software update to their phone made it waterproof? And then they tested to see if it worked?
Yeah, this isn’t a scam like that. Liquipel is REAL and we’re pretty sure it’s black magic. The good kind of black magic, though — the kind where shoving your friend into the pool hopefully won’t cost you hundreds of dollars anymore.
Seriously. Check it out:
Crazy, right? How does it work?
Liquipel actually has nothing to do with magic, despite our suspicions. It’s actually a crazy water-phobic nanocoating with “significant advancements in durability, corrosion resistance and water protection.”
Sounds cool, right? How do you do it?
Well, you don’t do it yourself. Here’s the process:
“Liquipel is a specialized process that applies a liquid repellent substance to electronic devices. We place the device into our proprietary machine which pumps down to create a vacuum. Once the vacuum process is complete, we inject our Liquipel formulation which turns from a liquid to a gas as it enters the chamber. In the final step, we introduce plasma which decomposes the liquid repellent molecules polymerizing them to themselves. Once the chamber comes back to atmospheric pressure we then remove your device with no cure time and the process is complete. Liquipel becomes the new surface of your device and its components.“
This ends up protecting your phone from about 80% of water damage. Sweet.
That’s cool and all, but what else they got?
If you don’t feel like sending your device away for a Liquipel bath (you can get it done HERE), the brand does offer another product that wants to beef up the physical security of your phone: Liquipel SKINS.
You install them yourself and the shock absorbing tech will take care of the rest. While this doesn’t make your precious phone anti-liquid, it does protect it from everyday wear and tear… to a much more active lifestyle.
But what if you used both products…
That’s probably a fantastic idea.
