19 Dec Nano Liquid Screen Protection – A Great Bundling Opportunity for Mobile Device InsuranceReading Time: 3 minutes
One of the most impressive and hotly talked about mobile innovations brought to market in the last few years was Nano Liquid screen protection. This invention promised to protect your fragile phone screen from, well, almost anything. Naturally, this sparked videos galore of bold YouTubers beating their new iPhones with hammers, throwing them down concrete stairs and even crushing them under the wheels of a truck. Defiantly, the victimised phone screens survived. Clearly, Nano Liquid screen protection does a great job – although damages are still possible and we don’t recommend following the YouTubers bravado!
What Exactly is Nano Liquid?
Nano-liquid can also be called ‘liquid glass’ – as it is pure Silicon Dioxide suspended in a solvent that hardens when it dries on a surface such as a screen. It was initially developed and used by aerospace engineers as a surface hardener. Apart from its strength and being universal to any screen dimension or shape, Nano Liquid is super lightweight, easy to apply and totally touch responsive. It’s almost unnoticeable with its excellent transparency and doesn’t cause those pesky air bubbles that ordinary screen protectors do. Oh, and it has antibacterial properties too! You can watch the application of this miracle liquid on a phone screen on youtube here.
Why is Nano Liquid So Strong?
Unlike what our human eye can see, glass is actually not smooth at all. At the molecular level, it’s an undulating surface of mountains and valleys. This makes ordinary glass vulnerable to abrasion as well as providing points of weakness that cause the glass to shatter under stress. Coating glass with Nano Liquid fills in these grooves creating an even surface at the nano-level – essential for superior durability and strength.
How Does This Invention Affect Mobile Insurance?
As if the video proof wasn’t enough, companies such as CrystalTech Nano are further bolstering their claims of indestructibility with inbuilt warranty cover. Their protection bundle, which costs €49.99, guarantees a €100 payout towards screen repair if the screen somehow manages to break within a year. Not only does this solidify trust with the consumer, but it opens up business for telecom providers and insurance companies.
Mobile operators can present these bundles to all their customers – allowing them to offer insurance cover to prepaid / pay-as-you-go consumers that are normally excluded from such opportunities. For mobile operators and their partnering insurance companies, this opens up a profitable new revenue stream. The CrystalTech Nano bundle has proven successful for both Vodafone (Ireland) and Telefonica (Spain) and is set to roll out across the rest of Europe imminently.
Once liquid protection becomes the norm, gone will be the days of the dreaded iPhone spider-web-screens! Customers that are currently paying for costly repairs or purchasing countless amounts of ill-fitting screen protectors can choose a failsafe one-off solution. In the worst case, it will protect their screen for a whole year; in practice, the screen defence lasts much longer than that. Without question, an offer like this is a fantastic way to gain customer loyalty and this is an opportunity that mobile operators shouldn’t miss.
