HZO Protection™ makes tolino’s New Large Screen eReader, the tolino epos, Submersible



tolino’s epos large screen eReader is a first for the company, but the fourth tolino product to feature HZO Protection against harmful liquids.

Draper, UT – October 18, 2017HZO Inc., the total solutions leader in liquid and environment protection technology, has collaborated with tolino for the fourth consecutive year to protect its latest eReader, the new tolino epos. The new eReader not only offers 69% more screen than the common 6” eReader, but can be submerged one meter deep in fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

The water protection of the new tolino epos is made possible by HZO’s thin-film coating solution. This solution allows users to use their tolino epos virtually anywhere, anytime, and read worry-free knowing it’s protected from spills, accidental submersion and the weather.

HZO technology ensures that the tolino epos keeps a slim profile while offering the water protection that readers want, no port covers needed. Despite the larger screen, the epos is just .1 millimeter thicker than the vision 4 HD, tolino’s flagship 6” eReader which also features HZO Protection.

HZO’s extensive work towards creating the best environment protection has made the tolino epos ready to take on the harshest and wettest reading locations this winter. Its unique HZO Parylene coating solution allows it to endure whatever situation it faces.

“Our ability to adapt our protection solution to a larger tolino device is a testament to HZO’s versatility,” says James Tosh, Director of Application Engineering at HZO, Inc. “tolino can present design changes for future models and we can easily implement a protection solution without delaying manufacturing. It’s an ideal situation.”
