LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC (Jacksonville, FL), today announced the new Life Proof™ Shields for tablets and smart phones. Life Proof™ Shields are the most effective and economical way to waterproof tablets and smart phones. The Life Proof™ Shield is the world's first, custom fit, waterproof phone skin with antimicrobial product protection. The Life Proof™ Shield is a form-fitted polyurethane skin that is light weight and durable, providing maximum waterproof protection in an unobtrusive design. Utilizing Silver Seal™ technology, the Life Proof™ Shield contains an antimicrobial, fungistatic additive which reduces the growth of mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria on the product's surfaces.
Smart phone and tablet devices have been proven to harbor harmful bacteria and viruses. A study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology warned that some 20 to 30% of viruses can be readily transferred from a fingertip to a glass surface, like that on a touch screen.
"Our customers are demanding germ protection for their cell phones and tablets," states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch. "We developed the Life Proof™ Shields for healthcare, but their unique waterproof characteristics also make them the ideal solution for active lifestyles."
Life Proof™ Shields are currently in stock and available from major resellers and distributors worldwide, starting at a retail price of just $29.99 US. The Life Proof™ Shields are among several new waterproof and antimicrobial solutions that Seal Shield LLC will be introducing at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, beginning January 7, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.
Seal Shield designs, develops and manufactures medical grade, infection prevention technology for hospitals and the home, including waterproof keyboards, mice, TV remotes, and the original Life Proof™ smart phone and tablet protection products. Seal Shield is a world leader in infection control technology, specializing in washable electronics and antimicrobial science. For more information please visit http://www.SealShield.com/
