Plasmaguard is the world's first halogen free ultra-thin (50 nanometers to 5 microns) conformal and flexible waterproof barrier layer. Compared to the alternative, halogen free Parylene, it has better adhesion and is a thinner, faster, easier, and  more cost effective process. Emerging environmental regulations will make halogen free waterproofing necessary in consumer products.

Based in Belgium, Europlasma manufactures systems and provides processes for waterproofing electronics, PCB's, textiles, footwear, and other products. Examples include critical parts of cellphones, earbuds, hearing aids, fitness devices and other wearables, drones, parts of outdoor speaker or security systems, or other small parts sensitive to water, moisture, sweat, saltwater, etc. It is also used for parts of medical devices.
