Simplism Crystal Shell, one step ahead
We have released a variety of product line up for the iPod nano (5th), and the striking new product among them is Crystal Shell for iPod nano (5th).
When we designed our bestselling Crystal Shell for iPod nano (4th) last year, we made a special mould so that it will not leave lines called "mould line" on the case, which you often see on the polycarbonate hard cases in the market.
We successfully designed our beautiful Crystal Shell as clear as possible with no mould lines.
However this year, we knew that our competitors would also release similar products when the new iPod nano model is released. So, we wanted add one more twist to make our Crystal Shell stay one step ahead.
Polycarbonate is impact-resistant material and is transparent that makes iPod in the case look nice and clean, however on the other hand, the biggest problem when you use polycarbonate hard cases is that the case gets scratches as you use it, and the case itself will no longer look as clear as it used to be.
This was the hint for one more twist that we were looking for.
We tried several different materials to seek for the answer to make a polycarbonate hard case that doesn't get scratches. However, if we changed the material, the case was not as clear as it used to be, and was not as strong as it should be. Then, we came up with the idea to give a special coating over the polycarbonate that prevents cases from getting scratches.
As the result of trial and error, we finally released Simplism Crystal Shell for iPod nano (5th) with this special coating called anti-scratch coating.
We tested to rub both non-coated polycarbonate case and anti-scratch coated case against the pearskin finish plastic.

Though this special coating doesn't guarantee 100% scratch free, you can prevent most of the scratches you may get during normal daily use.
This anti-scratch coating process requires high technique (and costs) and is very difficult to maintain the same quality coating.
It sure makes Simplism Crystal Shell stay one step ahead, and we hope you can enjoy your iPod life with this beautiful clear protection.
