P2i’s patented technology employs a special pulsed ionised gas (plasma), which is created within a vacuum chamber, to attach a nanometre-thin polymer layer over the entire surface of a product.  Tests show that P2i’s patented nano coating technology can deliver performance benefits for a wide range of materials, including polymers, metals, fabrics, leather, ceramics, glass and paper.  Even complex, 3D objects incorporating several different materials can be treated successfully with the P2i process.

P2i has two consumer brands for its technology: ion mask™, for footwear, outdoor clothing and accessories, and Aridion™, for consumer electronics.  For industrial applications, the technology is covered by the corporate P2i brand.
