Thin Film Nano-Coating Provider, HzO, to Demonstrate WaterBlock Technology

HzO, a leader in the field of thin film nano-coating for wearable technologies, will demonstrate its WaterBlock technology for commercial devices at the Wearable Technologies Conference 2013, held in San Francisco on July 22 and 23, and the Wearable Tech Expo, held in New York City on July 24 and 25.

“The wearables industry has emerged as a strong market for HzO. Consumers, soldiers, first responders and sportsmen are among those who now have HzO protecting their wearable devices against all kinds of liquids, from water to sweat to corrosive agents,” said Sergio Leveratto, vice president of global marketing and sales, at HzO. “Original equipment manufacturers are selecting HzO for current and future products because of the superiority and reliability of our WaterBlock technology.”

HzO’s proprietary WaterBlock technology is a thin film surface coating applied inside a device, creating a protective barrier. Using a chemical vapor deposition process, HzO covers vital electronic parts that are often compromised and tarnished by sudden or persistent exposure to corrosives -- including water, humidity and other liquids – as well as contaminating particles.

HzO product demonstrations and information will be available during both conferences:

  • Wearable Technologies Conference 2013: Held at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center, conference participants can find HzO in the Golden Gate Room on both days of the event.
  • Wearable Tech Expo 2013: HzO is a Gold Sponsor and will be located at Table Four of the Wearable Tech Expo at New York City’s Kimmel Center. The company will also participate in the Wearable Tech Demo Forum on Weds. at 4:00 p.m., as well as the Smart Materials panel on Thurs. at 2:35 p.m.

HzO works with large and small brands, design firms and manufacturers to add WaterBlock protection to products before they hit the market. Launched 18 months ago, HzO is now featured in multiple devices, including: the Tag Heuer Racer Sub Nano Luxury Android smartphone, the LaiPac S911 Bracelet Locator, the Life Beacon Medical Alert Device and the NavELite Wrist Compass. NavELite wrist compasses with WaterBlock are purchased 9 times out of 10 over un-coated models. For more information about WaterBlock technology and its application process, visit
