Micro Arc Oxidation on HTC One S Phone

Originally designed for use on satellites and race cars, the Micro Arc Oxidation process starts with aircraft-grade 6000-series aluminum. 10,000 volts of electricity hit the metal, almost like lighting strikes, causing a microscopic transformation which creates a super-strong ceramic case that is five times stronger than aerospace aluminum.

Wicked cool.

    Hi Warren – Looks very very cool but I think it ran into chipping issues once it made it out to market.

      Hmmm… Very interesting. I was wondering about that. The coating couldn’t have been so thick as to resist a really significant gouge.

      Thanks for the comment.
