HZO, Inc., a global leader in world-class nanocoatings that safeguard electronics, electrical products, and critical applications in an ever-changing market, announced a strategic alliance with Dymax. The partnership will extend HZO's portfolio by adding 3,000 formulations to its existing coating solutions, facilitate joint product development, and accelerate market reach through Dymax's global sales channel.
Dymax is one of the world's leading manufacturers of rapid light-cure adhesives, conformal coatings, potting compounds, and complementary dispensing and curing equipment. These products are used across various diverse industries and applications, including medical device, consumer electronics, automotive, and aerospace. Among the innovative products in the Dymax portfolio are special protective coatings and potting compounds that cure in seconds under UV LED or broad-spectrum light. This technological advantage enables increased production throughput while simultaneously reducing processing costs.
The partnership will directly address product requirements based on trends in IoT adoption, edge computing, ruggedization, electronic miniaturization, and lightweight devices, as well as help manufacturers rethink how they produce and protect their offerings. By 2030, it is estimated that over 100B electronic devices will be connected around the world, in addition to the countless number of stand-alone electrical products. These products will be deployed into some of the most challenging environments and mission-critical situations, from autonomous cars and satellites to health wearables and smart meters.
"Quick-cure conformal coatings from Dymax and next-generation nanocoatings from HZO, delivered through a single source, will accelerate market entry, streamline procurement, and enhance product performance, delivering a better, more durable offering," said Rich Holder, CEO of HZO. "This partnership aligns with our core strategy of delivering a complete customer solution and builds on years of working together serving some of the biggest brands in the business."
"HZO's leadership in thin-film sub-20-micron solutions will help meet our customer requirements for twenty-first-century device protection," said Jason Maupin, Chief Commercial Officer of Dymax. "The agreement provides for the production of new formulations, including sustainable alternatives, that will drive the alliance to the forefront of innovation."
