Liquid-Armor screen protector by Dynaflo Corp.
$19.95 at Amazon.com
So far, I’ve had pretty good luck protecting the screens on my digital devices from scratches. Those thin plastic screen protectors work pretty well. But I recently learned about another option--a spray-on coating that claims to use super-strong nanoparticles to defend against screen abrasion. So how could I resist?
Liquid-Armor comes in a little spray bottle--enough to coat about 50 screens, according to the box. You also get a soft reusable cloth for applying the stuff. Just clean off the screen, spray a little Liquid-Armor onto the cloth, and wipe it on. It takes about 10 minutes to dry and a day to reach full hardness. And because it’s a liquid, you can use it on all kinds of video screens--phones, tablets, desktop monitors, TV sets.
I didn’t want to scar my iPhone or Android phone for life, so I sprayed Liquid-Armor onto the screen of an old BlackBerry, and later took a knife to it. I managed to carve one small scratch onto the screen, but it took some effort. Liquid-Armor fended off every casual attempt to carve up the glass. It’s surely strong enough to deal with most accidental injuries. And according to the manufacturer, each application should last about six months.
For a quick, effective alternative to one-size-fits-all screen skins, Liquid-Armor is worth a look.
