Liquipel Wins Edison Award

Company's Watersafe Treatment Process Earns Silver at Prestigious Ceremony

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2012) - Liquipel was excited to announce today that the company won the Silver Award for Enhance Functionality in the Material Science category at the Edison Awards in New York City on April 26 for its revolutionary process that makes smartphones and other mobile devices watersafe.

The Edison Awards have been recognized as America's innovation awards that take the time-tested characteristics of innovation from earlier visionaries and write a new chapter in American innovation history. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison, whose extraordinary new product development methods garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents and made him a household name across the world.

"We are absolutely honored to be recognized among this extremely innovative group of individuals and companies," said Kevin Bacon, Liquipel's co-founder and president. "True to the spirit of Edison and the awards, we are not only pioneering new technology but also effectively marketing the technology to make it consumer and manufacturer friendly."

That same night, Liquipel was one of a select group of invited companies asked to demonstrate at the Pacific EDGE regional conference in Los Angeles. The meeting is a combination of the world's highest regarded executive conferences and the influence of the YPO-WPO network, and included 1,600 C-level decision-makers.

Using the latest advancements in nano-coatings, Liquipel's patented and patent-pending process creates a liquid-repellant coating that is 1,000-times thinner than a human hair but will last the life of the device. It not only exceeds cell-phone manufacturers' requirements but actually creates a new category for water-safe electronics.

The protective process can be introduced to fully assembled devices or integrated into the manufacturing line itself. The device is placed in a temperature-controlled vacuum chamber into which the proprietary formulation of Liquid repellent particles is introduced in a vapor form. Ionized particles are then introduced, which decompose, polymerize and bind the formulation to the device at the molecular level. Thirty minutes later, the process is complete.

Liquipel is virtually untraceable and will not affect nor compromise the look, feel and performance of the device.
