Perfect Heat & Humidity HPF80 NanoBlock

HPF80 NanoBlock is a protective polymer film coating that is about 1/1000 the thickness of an average human hair. How can something so nanoscopic provide so much protection? It’s all in the way the coating is applied and how it adheres to the surface material. When HPF80 NanoBlock is applied, it forms a molecular bond with the host material so while very thin, it is also very strong. In a nutshell, nano coating changes the surface properties of the host material in a way that causes liquids to bead up and either roll off or be removed easily. The following visual shows how water beads up on a nano coated surface more than water on a non-coated surface. Without nano coating – or HPF80 NanoBlock – the water spreads out across the surface. Check out our examples below: The aid on the left is NOT nano-coated, while the aid on the Right IS nano-coated. You can clearly see a visual difference in the color of the shell.

The beauty of HPF80 NanoBlock is that it is undetectable to the eye and to the touch. However, while this coating is only nanometers thick, it provides protection even in the harshest conditions. To verify the hardiness of HPF80 NanoBlock,

65% of people with hearing loss are actually under the age of 65!

Having a Better Life with Hearing Loss
Hearing loss affects over 30 million Americans – and it’s not just a problem for the elderly. The majority (65 percent) of people with hearing loss are actually younger than age 65. There are more than six million people in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 44 with hearing loss, and nearly one and a half million are school age, according to the Better Hearing Institute.
Because hearing has a profound effect on quality of life,
it’s important to know how to recognize hearing loss, and what can be done about it.

Signs of Hearing Loss

Do you:
  • Have trouble hearing over the telephone?
  • Find it hard to follow conversations when two or more people are talking?
