About this project
What is Impervious?
Impervious is an invisible waterproofing spray designed for smartphones and tablets. Using our specially formulated nano-technology, Impervious protects your devices from liquid damage and scratching. We have developed an easy to use application package that is available for purchase when you donate!
Impervious is an invisible nano spray (1000x smaller than a human hair) with superhydrophobic-properties. When applied externally to your device, Impervious protects against spill damage and screen scratching.
When fully applied (outer+inner components treated) Impervious is classified as (IPX 7). This protects your devices against accidental submersion and can withstand (1) meter or (3) feet of water for up to 30 minutes (however we do not reccomend this.)
What Makes Us Different?
Impervious is absolutely different from every other hydrophobic spray. We have made sure that our formula will not damage or leave a residue on your device. Users of other hydrophobic products have complained that it leaves an opaque film on treated surfaces and is simply removed by scratching. Other hydrophobic treatments on the market are also derived from water which will not work with electronics since water destroys electronics. Impervious is a non-water based solution that dries invisible to the treated surface. Impervious is also semi-permanent (lifespan of up to 3 years) where as other products require re-application in short time periods.
Water-resistant kits for any smartphone or tablet.
Impervious is a preventative solution, we do not recommend submerging your device in liquid. By spraying the outer components of your device we are ensuring that any liquid can be spilled on your device and not damage it.
* The 29.00 pledge gets you the spray bottle which can be applied to the exterior of ANY smart phone or tablet. There is enough in this bottle (8ml) to fully treat (1) smart phone or small tablet.
This spray bottle kit is easy to apply and allows any liquid to spill all over your device without damage. The speakers and camera will not be affected. Impervious does not damage your device when applied.
Impervious leaves no sign of residue and will appear to be completely invisible when instructions are followed. If you do not follow our application instructions properly you may leave slight residue on your screen. Our easy application video will soon be available on our youtube channel for customers and will guide you through this process.
iPhone 5, 5s and 6 full waterproofing kits
When fully applied (outer+inner components treated) Impervious is classified as (IPX 7). After being applied your device can be submerged in (1) meter or (3) feet of water for up to 30 minutes (however we do not recommend this).
*We do not recommend using this product as a waterproofing treatment so you can take pictures underwater. If you accidentally drop it in the toilet for example, your phone will be safe from water damage.
Fully treating your device requires that you take off your screen, we will be selling an iPhone 5 / 5s treatment package that will include a tool kit to do this after our initial roll-out of spray bottles for exterior treatments.
*The 39.00 pledge gets you a full waterproofing kit for your iPhone 5 5s, or soon available iPhone 6.
Note: We currently do not offer full waterproofing kits for other smartphone devices.
Impervious leaves no sign of residue and will appear to be completely invisible when instructions are followed. If you do not follow our application instructions properly you may leave slight residue on your screen.

Impervious has a semi-permanent lifespan of 3 years (longer than the life of most devices) and is environmentally safe.

Early Stages- Development
Experiments with different phones and formulas!
We started this project experimenting with different superhydrophobic chemicals and applying them to all types of devices before settling on the current formula and application process.
Our testing stages for cell phones are now complete and ready to market our first spray bottles.
This is where we need your help!
With your support we can...
1. Get proper packaging.
2. Properly market online through strategic keyword marketing and advertising.
3. Invest in more production to have a larger supply on hand to meet the growing demands of the market.
4. Develop new products and packages that encompass a wider range of applications.
Thanks for your help!
Risks and challenges
Package Design & Production:
We have package designs completed & will order once completed with our crowd sourcing. Our packaging company will need (2) weeks for completion. During this period of time, the packaging company will build a prototype that will need to be approved. Next, they will fill the order within (1) week. Totaling (2) Weeks Time.
We Currently have 1,000 units in bottles ready to ship minus the shipping boxes and labels. This will take (1) weeks time to fulfill an order size of 1,000.
After this initial 1,000 it will take 2 weeks to get product made and delivered to our facility. We then will need time to fill the bottles and this will take another week or two depending on the order size. We have personnel that will volunteer their time to ensure the fastest turn around time for all of the processes.
We will use many sources that include Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube along with others. We will focus our attention on people that have iPhones that are looking to protect their devices. We have a list currently of key words that will be targeted along with many SEO tools that have been implemented into our website. We will be putting up new videos frequently to keep the content unique.
The risks and challenges:
We need to have boxes made to properly package Impervious.
We also need to have supply of Impervious so we don't fall behind on orders that are placed by customers.
We also need to stay on top of customer service which will be handled by Zendesk, an online provider.
We also need to get the word out about this revolutionary product, so please share with as many people as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
