    way through the economy The drought has devastated the corn harvest in the U S as of August the USDA expected a corn crop that was at least 23 smaller than its already pessimistic outlook from earlier in 2012 leading to all time high corn futures prices on the commodity markets and higher prices at the grocery store of both corn and corn fed animal products steak chicken milk eggs bacon etc But it s not just food that suffers from a lack of water Non profit group Sustainable America does a stellar job of pointing out the interplay of corn and gasoline prices in America a problem caused in part by the high ethanol content in our gasoline 10 15 of each gallon of gasoline is comprised of ethanol With 45 of the nation s corn crop now going to ethanol production corn scarcity leads to ethanol scarcity which refiners pass down to consumers at the pump Anyone who drives to work can see this at play right now at their local gas station Yet ethanol isn t the only gasoline feedstock that is threatened by the drought The recent surge in domestic oil production up 3 5 year over year for two years running touted during President Obama s most recent State of the Union Address may be at risk as farmers and ranchers face off with oilmen in competition for scarce water supplies ranchers and farmers to water their crops and oilmen to use in the completion of their wells This year s drought is certainly beyond man s control but the practical ramifications of a water shortage should serve as a wake up call to policymakers and the public alike that America should address the water problems it can control and solve such as replacing our decrepit infrastructure and building smarter water systems to maximize the benefit of the water that we have The economic health of our nation depends on it NanoBusiness Recommends K L Gates Post Election Tech Webinar Weds 11 7 12PM ET Posted on November 9th 2012 in Uncategorized No Comments For those of us who are public policy wonks K L

firm Mr Clayson has served in numerous charitable civic and political key positions Chairman of the Utah Nanotechnology initiative board member of the Utah Technology Industry Council Chairman of the North Carolina WIRED Action Committee for Advanced Manufacturing and member of the Board of Directors of the Piedmont Triad Entrepreneurial Network He currently serves as Chairman of the Industrial Advisory Board for the Engineering Resource Center at North Carolina A T State University In our interview we discuss HzO s innovative nanocoatings technology its range of applications and the company s outlook for the year ahead and beyond We hope you enjoy the interview with Paul Clayson Steve Waite Director of Research and Strategy SW It is a pleasure to speak with you Paul We thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk about HzO Give us a little background on the genesis of HzO PC The genesis of the HzO technology began in Fairhaven MA A company that provides professional training for mariners began developing technology to make cellphones that could survive in water after an accident occurred with one of its students The concept was to find a way to protect the electronic circuitry in the device even if the circuitry was directly exposed to water That meant no gaskets seals plugs cases or ziplock bags After years of development a novel thin film nano coating was completed and applied through a chemical vapor deposition CVD process This process allowed the polymeric coating to surround every exposed surface in the electronic assembly and protect the assembly from failure by electrical shorting even from dendrite growth In 2009 ZAGG Inc a public consumer products company saw the product and acquired a controlling interest in the technology ZAGG spun off a separate privately held company called HzO assigned the technology to the new entity and continued development toward commercial launch In 2011 I was introduced to ZAGG and formed an agreement to separately capitalize the company We launched commercial operations in September 2011 and today HzO owns 100 of the technology SW What makes HzO s nanotechnology unique and effective at what it does PC HzO will change where people use their technology without fear of loss Our mission is that simple The HzO technology protects electronics from damage even when submerged for extended periods of time with the electronic circuitry fully exposed to water We regularly test electronic devices at one meter for 30 and even 60 minutes We have targeted as an initial market the consumer smartphone and electronics industry We have hundreds of YouTube videos that show HzO dunking smartphones tablets iPods and other electronics in water while still playing videos music or making calls and sending text messages In many instances we remove the back cover of the device so there is no question the electronics are exposed to the water While there are many market products that repel water HzO s submersion safe technology has gained very rapid global attention To get this novel coating formula to market we built a proprietary high throughput CVD system that produces volumes able to exceed the throughput of the world s largest phone and device manufacturers The combination of novel formula process and equipment constitute the HzO intellectual property We have filed 6 patents and 11 provisional on the IP in the US and in many other countries I believe that the HzO team now knows more about water failure on smart phones than any company on the planet When HzO technology is applied to a substrate angstrom sized particles in a gas state align in a 3 D matrix to create a polymer coating that is transparent and pinhole free with consistent thickness and universal coverage on all exposed surfaces We apply no coating to the exterior of the device so it never affects the look and feel The coating does not retain heat so circuitry does not sustain thermal damage We simply like to say that HzO provides protection from the inside out SW What kinds of applications do you see for HzO s nanocoatings PC Certainly consumer mobile communication devices are a huge and growing market Everyone is carrying their computer in their pocket today And because our computers are now with us everywhere we go they are exposed to damage by water through natural elements like rain and sweat and human accidents Our research shows the number of devices falling in toilets when skinny jeans are loosened is astounding Further research shows that over 65 of water damaged devices involve a submersion event And by the way the communications market is equally as large in military commercial first responders and a host of other market segments HzO will enter the mobile laptop market as well Additionally we are currently doing applications for massive markets like consumer appliances think dishwashers washing machines refrigerators kitchen appliances bathroom appliances etc Other areas include medical devices automotive electronics aerospace and solar energy There are scores of other markets like hearing aids artificial limbs GPS exercise equipment performance racing recreational vehicles and freight and transport monitors Our primary business model is to license our technology to high volume manufacturers for installation at customer facilities However we also have installed our high speed equipment at our headquarters and we are doing application coatings jobs daily for customers who do not have volume which warrants an investment in machinery SW Are there any special challenges in bringing HzO s technology to market PC Integration of machinery and process into existing manufacturing equipment is not a trivial endeavor Adoption of HzO technology into consumer markets requires specifying HzO into production plans for the next generation of devices and working very closely with customer engineering teams In addition there are consumer device components like cameras that are not built to withstand water While our technology can protect the component electronics there can be other issues like condensation on a camera lens that requires additional engineering However we have been jointly developing solutions to those problems for over a year All can and will be solved in future devices Additionally automotive medical and other industries electronics usually do not require the same component redesign or do not have components attached We can bring these applications to market much quicker In addition there is an interesting market dynamic that is a minor challenge A water barrier protocol was developed in Japan several decades back that measured the ability of the case on a device to prevent water ingress inside the chamber holding the electronics The water ingress referred to as IPX standard standard assigns a numerical value to the ability to withstand everything from minor external water exposure IP1 to submersion at 1 meter for 30 minutes IP7 This system then allows device manufacturers to claim an IPX rating based on which testing level was met These IPX ratings are also known as waterproofing standards HzO enters the market and everyone is asking which IPX standard we meet with our technology The practical answer is all of them by performance The technical answer is none of them because we allow water ingress around the electronics with no resulting damage We cannot tell anyone we meet IPX standards This confuses technical assessment for manufacturers who want to know the IPX rating If we state we have waterproof technology it is practically true but technically incorrect Because we are changing the paradigm of water protection we have now developed a new testing standard called the WaterBlock standard which we are bringing to market with industry players This new testing standard will measure the ability to protect electronic assemblies even when directly surrounded by water We believe this will clear up some of the confusion surrounding existing industry standards In the future we expect to see a WBX rating for electronics water protection coatings Finally manufacturers have been hesitant to adopt HzO without demand from the carriers and retailers who are buying the devices because they will sell fewer devices if HzO is protecting against water damage However carriers and retailers not to mention consumers are growing very weary of being forced to pay the cost to keep loyal customers because the customer has a dead phone from water damage that is not covered under warranty Now that carriers and retailers see there is a solution they are driving the manufacturers to adopt HzO quickly SW The coming year appears to be a breakout year for HzO How do you see the company s prospects in 2013 PC First we see a strong growth path for coatings application jobs we are doing in house We see more and more inquiries weekly Second consumers will begin to see HzO on various models of phones tablets toys and other consumer products in 2013 Industrial and commercial applications will also be introduced HzO will enjoy a significant leap in revenue in 2013 but we expect a much steeper growth curve in 2014 and beyond We believe that while the first applications require long lead times everyone wants to be second to market We have planned to capture that ramp SW What does the competitive landscape look like for HzO Do you see the potential for a lot of competition in the future PC Every emerging technology must plan for competitive entries as time progresses it is inevitable To a degree that is good news for us Market expansion and adoption will lead to a bigger pie Currently there are competitive coating technologies using plasma and silicon based solutions Our biggest competitor is mechanical seals gaskets plugs and the like Both mechanical seals and external cases change the aesthetics of the device and in some cases the usability Consumers have been slow to adopt mechanical seals everywhere but Japan In addition if a port plug is left out or a case left unsealed water ingress occurs and the device still dies Whether HzO is used as stand alone water protection or as redundant protection with mechanical seals we win SW Looking out longer term how do you see HzO evolving over the next 3 5 years PC HzO will begin market adoption with a small number of consumer devices We will also begin with some commercial applications some of which are already on the market in emergency response automotive military and medical devices Once early adoption occurs consumer and user demand for the technology will increase very rapidly In three years we expect to have a large number of devices and multiple commercial and military applications using HzO and a growing brand focused on HzO and the WBX standard In five years we expect very broad use of HzO driven by market success and consumer demand and a widely recognized brand With time we eliminate the fear of using technology in environments exposed to moisture and change where people use their technology SW Do you envision HzO becoming a publicly traded company down the road and if not why not PC Not if I can help it Public trading brings so much cost regulation headaches and challenges but certainly it is an option Despite the negatives public trading can allow broad ownership and an exit strategy for current shareholders However HzO has the great opportunity to drive strong cash flow and pay significant dividends to its current shareholders We are building the business to make that a reality I also strongly suspect there will be large multinational companies that will want to acquire HzO We certainly will assess each opportunity at the correct time in our development SW Last question for you today Paul What are some of the key lessons you ve learned in working with nanotechnology PC Number one is to balance the need for long and strong research with the need to fund the research through profits from a commercialized product The
