Unmatched
protection—
flexible and scalable for any application.

HZO provides protection solutions for manufacturers and brands seeking to meet the consumer and business demand for product fortification. OEMs and ODMs engaged with HZO are able to maintain flexibility and innovation in product design while achieving scalable, end-to-end manufacturing results. The reality of a warrantable, protected digital product is within reach with HZO.

Proven technology and processes.

HZO has accomplished what few companies can: a turn-key solution for protecting any digital device or component in mass production. These successes have come with focusing on the three pillars of HZO solutions:

  • Spectrum of Protection™
  • Proprietary Equipment
  • Proven Processes

 

HZO Spectrum of Protection™

The HZO Spectrum of Protection™ is a wide range of coating solutions engineered to the specific needs of your projects. Whether it is protection from rain drops and sweat, to full submersion in water or hazardous chemicals, to even exposure in the world’s most corrosive environments – HZO has a solution that meets the protection level, budget and manufacturing demands of your product.

This range of coatings comes from two general families of technology: Nano Coatings and Barrier Coatings. From these two groups, there is a tailored solution that fits the scope of your project. HZO will help you identify it and deliver.

Nano Coatings

New to HZO, nano coatings perform on a nanoscale level, offering superior protection against splashes like rain, sweat, and more. These coatings are simple to apply in manufacturing and offer a level of protection many companies are seeking.

Barrier Coatings

For those looking for significant protection against prolonged submersion or extremely corrosive environments, HZO utilizes variations or Parylene; a robust microns thin barrier coating. Unequaled in the industry, HZO has taken the power of Parylene into mass production with proven results.

HZO Proprietary Equipment

HZO has built a trusted legacy in offering superior coating and support equipment tailored to the mass manufacturing demands of our customers. Each piece of equipment has been designed internally at HZO and tested rigorously before being deployed seamlessly into the customers existing production line.

Each proprietary HZO coating machine features a proven batched-based application method for high-throughput environments. Units to be protected are placed inside the equipment’s vapor deposition coating chamber. Once inside, the predetermined solution material is applied as a vapor, forming the protective coating. With the largest coating chambers in the industry and proven high-throughput technology capable of coating millions of units, HZO has an equipment solution ready for your next project.

HZO Proven Processes

Protecting electronic components against harsh and corrosive environments can be a daunting and complex process. Add mass manufacturing into the mix and you have a challenge few companies are willing to undertake. HZO prides itself on innovating and refining manufacturing processes that yield the protection results our customers are looking for. Our proven track record in high-throughput environments is unparalleled due to HZO’s proprietary processes that ensure efficient throughput and quality protection.

Manufacturing quality
every check of the way.

Quality is critical for every unit we protect. HZO takes each customer's products through a rigorous validation checklist to ensure we've engineered the ideal protection solution in terms of durability, ease of manufacturing and cost. Our team of R&D, design analysts and engineers engage in the following steps:

  • Project analysis and assessment

    The HZO team assesses requested sample units and works directly with the client’s manufacturing engineers in order to understand the design of the product, and to identify potential stopgaps and problem areas. This includes understanding the protection needs of the unit, whether it be against minimal sweat and light rain or prolonged submersion in extreme corrosive environments.

  • Custom application strategy development

    We develop a customized plan and process for the product, ensuring that our team can optimally execute the coating process for that particular unit.

  • Quality control and maintenance

    HZO’s quality control engineers run a meticulous check on the units to ensure complete functionality and make required modifications.

  • Process documentation and product delivery

    Our team then drafts a detailed document of the entire process and ship the units back to the client for additional testing.

  • Engineering and production consultation

    In some cases, we will work with companies to help modify the engineering of their products in order to optimize the coating process and ensure exact performance standards.

  • Production support

    HZO will be on hand during production to offer any support needed to ensure a swift and quality manufacturing process.

No other company provides this extensive consultative approach from design to finished product. Contact us today to start your product evaluation.
