Mobile devices are at constant risk from exposure to spilled liquids or sweat. Connector corrosion protection is a key feature when producing water-resistant mobile devices. While gaskets can waterproof the interior, metal contacts in the connectors exposed to liquids can quickly corrode — leaving the device unable to charge. As devices move toward faster charging capabilities, this issue becomes more acute.
Xtalic uses proprietary alloys and multilayer coatings to protect mobile device connectors from corrosion. When compared to standard gold or equivalent products, the Xtalic solutions can extend the life of smartphones by up to 30x when exposed to immersion, spills, and sweat.
