Ummm, substantially more expensive than any piece of equipment Kinko's currently has, Maybe one per major city.

And I believe the major components have to be treated prior to assembly for the process to be effective. Given the difficulty of disassembling a cellphone (especially an iPhone, designed to be difficult), this doesn't seem like a starter.

But it might be an interesting device to have in a community "maker shop."

This already exists. LiquiPel does it and they are in the process of opening mall kiosks. This would not necessarily be prohibitively expensive if it is priced as an add-on with a reduction in the cost of  insurance  or a reduced deductible.

Dave P - not only are the florines nasty, but nano-materials themselves are of questionable safety.

I know, let's coat things that we handle every day with our bare skin (some people every few minutes) with something of unknown biological activity.

If you dump your phone in the toilet, learn the lesson and be more careful next time.  For me, I have 99% alcohol handy in my home to dry out any electronics that get wet.

Sorry 3drob, this was not meant as an ad---I actually tried this on my niece's phone and I meant it to be a reply regarding apresher's comments about the cost prohibition in commercial cell phones---he's right, so only spend the extra money after the fact if your phone gets wet.

Actually, it depends on what brand you get. Careful shoppers look at the water-resistant Lenovo products. The keyboards even include special gutters to deflect the water from internal parts. Google and YouTube are your friends here. Some of the techniques have been patented.

Immersion damage? A much more interesting result would be if this process were found to be effective against the growth of tin whiskers, , the guaranteed-to-fail manufacturing process using lead-free solder foisted upon us by non-technical do-gooder Europeans.

If this process were found to be effective against the growth of tin whiskers, we could suddenly have phones and cameras that would again last longer than three years and cars that would not suddenly engage in fatal wide-open-throttle acceleration.

ic78man08 - this is not the appropriate venue for commercial adverts.
