LONDON, 11 JUNE 2013 – Techjacket, a London based company dedicated to delivering innovative products that enhance and protect our digital lives, today announced the launch of the UK’s first and only hydrophobic nanotechnology protection for smart phones, available for customers via a walk-in and postal service.
The WaterShield™ treatment uses cutting edge technology to transform every surface of a device, so that it can repel liquids and oils. The process manipulates the coating at a nanoscopic level and bonds it to the surface permanently and invisibly, creating a permanent protective layer 1000 times thinner than a human hair on every surface of the phone, inside and out.
Unlike other waterproofing technologies or ruggedized devices, the coating maintains the look, feel and functionality of the phone without affecting the intricate internal electronic components, and by keeping the phone free from corrosion, enables the safeguarding of data on the device.
Water damage is the second biggest threat to our digital mobility, but whether water damage is caused by getting caught in the rain or as a result of an accidental spillage, with Techjacket’s WaterShield™ technology, a smartphone will continue to operate.
Marc Regan, Founder of Techjacket said, “We are very proud to be launching the UK’s first and only nanotechnology protection for smartphones, and we are working with our partners to apply this patented technology onto tens of thousands of electronic devices. We are very much looking forward to expanding our service outside of London, to every major city in the UK.”
Today, Techjacket can protect smartphones including the Apple iPhone 5, 4S & 4, and the Samsung Galaxy SIII, SIII mini & SII, and will be looking to expand this to new devices over the coming year. At present, customers can enjoy the same day walk-in service at the Mac 1 Computer Repair Shops in Central London, located in Mayfair, Covent Garden and Spitalfields, but for those outside of London, Techjacket can also provide a postal service whereby the phone is treated on the same day, and sent back to the owner with next day delivery.
