Subic firm revolutionizes smartphone screen protectors

A newly-established company in Subic Bay Freeport Zone is set to revolutionize the smartphone screen protectors market with the introduction of a new technology.

NanoFixIt Ventures Inc. recently launched NanoFixIt Titanium liquid screen protector in the local as well as global markets, targeting the latest smartphones and other electronic devices.

“We want to establish NanoFix It synonymous with liquid screen protector,” says  Kris Helgesen, president of NanFixIt Ventures.

Helgesen says NanoFixIt  has created a patented product using nanotechnology to form a unique mix of Nano scale organic silicon (SiO2) and highest quality anti-bacterial Titanium that will penetrate and seal any electronic glass surface and make it ultra scratch resistant.

This form of liquid glass coating has no glues or adhesives and bonds to the surface as a result of the quantum forces involved to form an invisible protective layer that is 500 times thinner than a human hair.

The world of electronics is changing so fast that the producers of the traditional plastic or other screen protectors are struggling to keep up. When Apple’s iPhone 6 came out, there was no screen protector for it as nobody really knew what it would look like. When Samsung released their curved models the same challenge occurred.

NanoFixIt Titanium is considered the world’s strongest liquid screen protector which is now finally in available in the retail market.

“To apply the product you simply put one pea-size drop on the glass, rub it diagonally and vertically for 30 seconds covering the whole surface. Let it dry for 60 seconds and buff the glass until it shines,” says Helgesen.

The NanoFixIt Titanium technology is produced in the USA and bottled and packaged in the Philippines for worldwide distribution.

“NanoFixIt is continuously developing new products to ensure we are the No. 1 brand and choice for liquid screen protection for your electronics devices.  We aim to be the No. 11 screen protector,” he says.

The Subic Factory, according to Helgesen, is capable of producing two million sets until the end of 2015. It targets to produce five million sets by 2016 and 10 million sets by 2017 valued at $300 million.

Under the SBMA policy, the company is mandated to export 70 percent of its total production, says Helgesen.

The company invested $15 million in the Subic operation. And this money went to capital expenditures and operating costs complemented with 40 workforce.

Apple Inc.’s launch of its latest smartphone, equipped with 3D Touch features that sense pressure on the display, marks the end of the traditional screen protector products. The new iPhone 6s features 3D touch technology, the next generation of multi-touch that senses how much pressure is applied on the display.

In addition to familiar multi-touch gestures such as tap, swipe and pinch, 3D Touch features peek and pop features, which bring a new dimension of functionality to the iPhone experience.

With 3D Touch, iPhone 6s responds with subtle taps that enable users not only to see what a press can do but also to feel it.

The new iPhone 6s is expected to make 3D Touch a basic feature among new smartphones, as other main manufacturers will likely follow Apple’s lead and introduce 3D Touch-enabled smartphones in future releases.

The big question, however, is how users will protect their expensive 3D Touch-enabled smartphones without covering the original screen with a plastic or glass screen protector.

Initial tests carried out by the research and development team of NanoFixIt show that the traditional plastic and glass screen protectors, when applied to the 3D Touch screen, either completely prevent the effect of the new 3D Touch or greatly reduce its effectiveness.

NanoFixIt says the answer lies on NanoFixIt Titanium - the revolutionary nanotechnology liquid screen protector considered as the world’s strongest liquid screen protector.

NanoFixIt Titanium boosts many benefits such as enhanced vividness of the screen (HD effect), enhanced quality of the camera and pictures taken, reduction of finger-marks and smudges, anti- bacterial effect and even repels water like the leaf of a lotus flower.

“In the context of the new Apple 3D Touch screen launched with IPhone 6s and 6s Plus, NanoFixIt Titanium is the only screen protector which does not derogate from the functionality of the new 3D Touch screen,” NanoFixIt says.
