Liquipel was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2012 Thomas Edison Awards using Europlasma's breakthrough, nanocoating technology platform. Liquipel obtained an exclusive retail license for the Nanofics technology in the United States and non-exclusive retail licenses in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia. The Nanofics technology has been sub-licensed by Liquipel to LQP Asia Limited for Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, and to Vita Group for Australia.

Fung Yu Group and its partner Hydrowarriors (http://www.hydrowarriors.com) based in China currently market the Nanofics technology for handheld electronic devices under the brand name "Hydrowarriors" and have an exclusive license for the retail market in China and Macau, as well as a non- exclusive license for the retail market in Hong Kong.

Europlasma's Managing Director Filip Legein comments: "as the true pioneer in nanocoating technology, we are happy to see that 15 years of intensive R&D by the Europlasma team has resulted in a growing number of markets and applications, such as air filtration products, functional textiles, medical devices, and now handheld electronics. In handheld electronic devices it has become clear that the end customer is willing to pay for additional protection against liquid damage. It will be interesting to see how fast the retail market will drive the manufacturers to adopt the technology on a wider scale. This has created a steep growth in demand which Europlasma is able to meet with a reliable technology platform, running on industrial scale of equipment."

Europlasma is expecting to announce new retail partnerships for handheld electronic devices in Europe and other regions soon.
