It is Europlasma’s patented and patent pending plasma coating technology platform, used over 20 years by a worldwide renowned customer base for the coating of filtration products, functional textiles, medical devices and consumer electronics.

The Nanofics 120 family of coatings are highly liquid repellent and have proven to be well suited to splashproof and corrosion protect wearable and portable electronics, used in an active lifestyle. The Nanofics 120 can be applied on component level, PCB or even the whole device, and is typically used to reach water ingress protection levels up to IPX4, and salt mist corrosion protection for at least 48 hours.

Building further on the same Nanofics® 120 platform Europlasma scientists and engineers have now developed and patented a new ultra-thin coating system which allows electronics to survive full water submersion while powered on. Devices with their internal electronics protected by Nanofics 120 S now can reach IPX7 or higher. The ultra-thin Nanofics 120 S is said to perform more than 10.000 times better than traditional Nanofics 120 during water submersion. Compared to parylene the 120 S coatings have much lower wettability, and will not easily crack because they are flexible, and they adhere well to different substrates.
