What actually happens to the phone after contact with water?

22/06/2020

Your phone works best when its surroundings are extremely dry and sterile. Electronics manufacturers strive to produce device covers and covers as accurately as possible. However, there are still places where water can get into the facilities very easily. These are, for example, charging ports, headphone ports, microphone ports, or speakers.

Some products have these ports equipped with a plastic or rubber cover, but they are not waterproof. The moment the water gets inside the device, there are a few seconds or minutes left, when through various slits and holes it gets into the inner circumference, where it causes the most damage. It is primarily damaged by water and secondarily by moisture, which evaporates from the water and gets everywhere.

Therefore, we still say that the most important thing is a quick response‼ ️ First wipe the device surface, then try to turn it off as soon as possible and remove the battery if possible. Then we wipe it thoroughly from the water, every slit and port where we can get, or blow with our mouths every hole where the water has entered.

Be careful not to use the hairdryer, as it could heat up the glue when drying and warming the air, which would loosen the joints and water could get inside the device more easily.

Our + SRAW packages use VCI technology to protect metal components and tin joints. We also use a natural absorbent that absorbs all the moisture from the device. Traces of corrosion and oxidation mostly remain on damaged equipment, as we have already published in our research in one of the previous blogs 🧐
