Water Resistant Electronic Gadget
Water Resistant Electr  
Dear Aviva

Technically, Electronic components viz Integrated Circuits, Transistors, Resistors, capacitors etc are susceptible to Damage
if the electronic gadgets are dipped in water. Isn't it ?.

What is the technology the electronic gadgets manufacturers are applying to manufacture water resistant electronic gadgets viz watches, mobile phones etc ?.

Are they using Special Glass coating or any other material for
waterproof ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Dear Prashant S Akerkar,
There are 2 ways to seal electronic devices:
1. Water proof packaging meaning the plastic or metal package is sealed using a rubber
  gasket or a water proof glue.
2. The device is filled with a silicon based paste like RTV  
  ( or epoxy glue.

Best Regards,
