Liquipel’s New Skins Protects Smartphones From Physical Blows

August 13, 2013 - Written By Cory McNutt

If you are like most people, your cellphone is your constant companion that never leaves your side no matter where you are or what you are doing. Dropping them has become commonplace, in fact, every worthy smartphone that arrives on the market is given the old “drop test,” to see how much damage there is to the phone when dropped from different heights, with special emphasis on the glass display.

Dropping your smartphone in water, be it the toilet, sink or swimming pool, or even spilling your coffee or drink on it is an everyday occurrence; and for that problem you can spend $60 and have Liquipel coat and protect selected devices with the most popular models, such as, Apple, Samsung, HTC, and Motorola covered. The video below is hilarious and worth watching.

That is great for liquids, but what about protection when you drop your phone; if you do not use a case, what do you do? Now the same company, Liquipel, has just announced a new product called “Skins,” a $15 treatment of “high-impact film” that will prevent not only scratches, but also helps dissipate the force of an impact that can lead to the display being shattered.

Liquipel Skins

Liquipel Skins are created in a four-layer process and act as literal shock absorbers for smartphones while also maintaining a smooth, glass-like surface. The film itself is a hybrid of many of the best components found within other protective materials. The top layer is an incredibly durable polyurethane that stems from military uses. To complement the abrasion resistance, there is another layer that adds the strength and rigidity necessary to keep corners from peeling.”

Liquipel claims that with both technologies applied to your device, you can live that carefree life we all strive for…go camping, fishing, rock climbing, hiking, etc. without fear of damage to your device. Even a trip to and from work, as well as an office environment, can prove to be a worthy advisory when it comes to protecting your device. The full-body coverage skins are currently available online at Liquipel’s website for the iPhone 4S and 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4, with other models being released in upcoming months.

Let us know in the comments if this Skins treatment is something that you would find useful.  This last video combines both the Liquipel and Liquipel Skins treatments.
