Nano-Shield Technology

Proven, protective Nano-Shield Coatings

How It Works

We developed our nanotechnology solutions from first principles, specifically to serve the digital world. Competing solutions use either off-the-shelf coatings, such as Parylene, or chemicals designed for the fabric industry, repackaging them to target the rapidly growing consumer electronics protection market.

It starts with our proprietary, special chemical nanocoatings, invented and refined in our labs in Cambridge UK, and intelligently designed to form ultra-thin conformal barriers which are dense, transparent, and impenetrable to not just water, but corrosive salt solutions, noxious gases, and even concentrated acids.

A patented plasma deposition chamber is used to apply the nanomaterials in a rapid one-step high-volume process that is space-efficient, environmentally safe, and simple to operate. The deposition chambers can be placed in cleanroom or industrial locations, and are entirely self-contained.

Starting with simple, commercially available precursors (liquids and gases), we create complex and unique polymer shield layers on top of the electronic devices that need to be protected, without applying any thermal or physical stress to the high-value products. By incorporating multiple ultra-thin layers with different physical properties (patented and unique to Semblant), we create special chemical, pinhole-free barriers to water, sweat, corrosion, dust, dirt and all the real-world hazards your electronic devices encounter throughout their life.

Economics

Let’s face it: Life happens. From the manufacturer, to the distributor, to the store, to you, electronic devices get put through a lot. Regardless of where your investment is, it is worth protecting it from the damage that lies in its path.

  • Repairing and restocking damaged products cost the smartphone industry approximately $10 billion in 2015.
  • Replacing damaged smartphones cost consumers approximately $30 billion in 2015.

Semblant’s nano-shield technology protects your investments against real-world moisture ingress and corrosion damage. Not only that, our special chemical coating allows manufacturers and repair centers to rework and repair problems with subcomponents – something that cannot be done with coatings such as Parylene and similar paint-like materials – to further improve the economics for the manufacturer, the carrier and the consumer.

Environmental Advantages

Did we mention green? We lead the industry in green. All Semblant products are fully compliant with RoHS and other green material specifications, and our special chemical coatings never contain harmful PFOA/PFOS chemistries that are typical of other water-resistant materials.
