Plasma Nano Coating Could Increase Your Drone’s Lifespan

The good news for any drone enthusiast is that plasma nanocoating can enhance performance of the components within drones and increase their lifespan.

Having invested in aerial assets, drone professionals are obviously interested in keeping their drones working longer. Because of delicate electronics, drones are vulnerable to water and other environmental factors that can ruin them. It seems that plasma nano coating may be the solution to the lifespan of drones. Whereas waterproofing methods add weight and thereby reduce battery life, plasma nano coating does not have the same effect.

As drones continue to grow in popularity in unprecedented ways, and as drone technology becomes more sophisticated, the expectations of individuals, industries, and businesses also continue to rise. The thirst for innovation will never be fully satisfied, as it should be. After all, that is why innovation does emerge in the various sectors of society.

Large-scale implementation of delivery drones are slowly emerging, to the surprise of many individuals and businesses, such as Amazon.

Commercial drone deliveries are still hampered by minimal flight time and thus limited range. The other obvious need is reliability, especially since most deliveries will take place in urban settings. Because this involves large numbers of people, any lack in reliability may not only be embarrassing, but hazardous. At this juncture, drones are still quite vulnerable to changing weather conditions, so this is another limitation that makes drones vulnerable.

A new development in drone technology to ensure that the manufacturers and operators of delivery drones can guarantee that their fleets are safe and reliable, is the development of plasma nano-coating technology. The first benefit of nanotech in drones is improved performance of the components within.

While this technology is new in its application to drones, it has been widely used in the consumer electronics industry, which most of the populace has already been benefiting from, due to the plasma that is used to bond an invisibly thin, ultra-light layer of polymer to the surface of the electrical components, as well as the protection of smartphones, wireless headsets, etc.

The microscopically thin coating barely adds to the weight of the drone, and the graphene in these batteries increase the storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries by up to 50%, and lightens the weight and helps to increase the flight time.

Utilizing high-tech solutions, like nano coatings, are too important to ignore. This is why companies are already investing heavily in drone technology to secure a viable place, even dominance, over a rapidly emerging market.


Nanotech is a big part of the modern world, and it is also the best approach for a more capable, and longer-lasting drone.

Nanotech not only means smaller forms of technology, but new materials, to improve performance. The intersection between nanotech and drones, is being used in the drone industry to make them more durable, reduce weight, extend time-of-flight, and make the larger drones function more effectively.
