Simone Maraini, CEOBy 2020 there will be over 30 billion IoT devices, surpassing the human population by 5X, and growing to 75 billion by 2025. In addition to influencing societal behavior, the technology is driving innovation across multiple markets, from automotive to manufacturing. To guarantee the longevity of these IoT components, manufacturers that include electronics as part of their solutions must ensure their capacity to withstanding the harshest of environments— rain, salt, chemicals and more. HZO, a global leader in world-class protective nano coating solutions, helps ensure that these devices stand up to the harshest conditions, protecting the IoT infrastructure of tomorrow.
To achieve its mission, HZO has pioneered a Spectrum of Protection™—a suite of protective coating solutions applied directly to sensitive circuitry, specially engineered to the protection needs of a wide variety of electronic designs.
“The nano-based materials in our Spectrum of Protection are designed to perform on a molecular level, offering superior protection to electronic devices against a wide variety of hazards,” says Simone Maraini, CEO of HZO.
Additionally, for electronic devices operating under continuous environmental exposure, submersion or extremely corrosive environments, HZO utilizes proprietary coating approaches based on Parylene: a robust microns-thin coating known for its liquid and dust protection and outstanding dielectric properties. As a result, the Company’s Spectrum of Protection™ helps its clients achieve greater device durability and longevity, with fewer returns and higher customer satisfaction.
HZO brings together people, process, capital equipment, and material science to create unique solutions to meet real-world protection requirements, which set the company apart from other solutions. HZO’s protection process is a customer-driven approach, partnering with its clients through every step of the manufacturing process from engineering consultation and production ramp-up, to defining the bill of processes and quality checkpoints.

“HZO is a one-stop shop for every electronic device or IoT manufacturer’s need for protective coatings,” says Maraini. HZO’s solutions are ideally suited for the IoT industry, protecting everything from sensors and circuitry, to the most microscopic components of IoT devices, in ways other protection methods can’t compare.
The Company’s unique IP and value-bound innovations position it among the top players in the market, attracting numerous tier-one brands and manufacturers to its portfolio. For example, in 2016 Dell with a goal to enhance its offering in the ruggedized tablet market enlisted HZO to protect the internal circuitry of its flagship offering. To this day HZO supports the vision of this world-class leader while providing the quality and scale to help ensure it can meet market demands. More recently, HZO partnered with the smart home company Netatmo, a household name throughout Europe, to protect its outdoor security camera, a critical component in its IoT chain of solutions.
Envisioning a promising future, HZO is continuing to expand its Spectrum of Protection™ to offer additional coating solutions tailored to the specific requirements of its clients. The need for protection in electronics has never been greater, especially in IoT, automotive, consumer and industrial markets. HZO is poised to be the forefront provider of this protection.
