Nissan Implements Scratch Shield Tech with iPhone Cases
Have you ever heard of self-healing paint? Well, if you drive a new Nissan, you're more familiar with it than you know. In fact, it's technology that Nissan has perfect on models like the Murano, and after spending years perfecting it, they've recently expanded that technology to something that has nearly nothing to do with vehicles.
What we really mean to say is, imagine if you dropped your beloved iPhone, face-down in your driveway. What is it that you expect to see when you pick it up? Scratches. And lots of them. Right? Well, with the Self-Healing iPhone case, you won't have to worry about it anymore.
Made from ABS plastic, the case itself is coated with a scratch-shield finish. It's more durable than regular phone cases, and it provides a better surface for gripping. So, you're less likely to drop your phone in the first case. But, just in case you do get a minor scratch on it, it will heal itself.
How's it work? Well, it's more scratch-resistant to begin with. But, the outer coating is made from polyrotaxane, a chemical structure that is gel-like and able to reform itself in case of damage. Like we said, Nissan has used this on their models for years, keeping the paint looking as shiny and new as the day the car was driven away from the dealership. Imagine if your phone could look that good after two years of abuse?
Sounding pretty cool, right? Well, you'll have to wait a bit, as the cases have only just gone into prototype testing. Which means, by the time they hit the market, they'll be even better than they already are.
In the meantime, we invite you to come see the technology in its original application in the Connell Nissan showroom at 2850 Harbor Blvd Costa Mesa, CA 92626. A member of our team is always happy to answer your questions, arrange test drives, and give you a tour of all of the innovations Nissan has made in the last few years.
