Rash Guard- “A means to prevent a rash.”
In this case, the rash I’m referring to are scratches and scuffing that can occur on the all so delicate aluminum band of the iPhone 5. As you know, the iPhone 5 utilizes an aluminum band rather than stainless steel. This is one of the reasons why the iPhone 5 is so light. Aluminum also allows the band to be anodized in a black finish or silver for the white iPhone. But this comes at a price, as aluminum is a very soft metal, compared to stainless steel. Being specialist in the area of precision machined aluminum and anodizing, our design team realized early on that the iPhone 5 would be very quick to show wear from every day use, even if a protective case is used. Although our cases provide extreme impact protection, we wanted decrease the chances of micro blemishes to the aluminum band caused by fine dirt or grit or UV rays that can fade the black anodizing.
It’s extra protection for your iPhone 5 when using an Element Case or any other case, especially if you take the case off periodically.
Rash Guard II now in Black and Silver-
The first Rash Guard we offered with the Sector 5 FE was clear and fingerprints tended to show through the special material, so we added little tabs to make the application easier. But the thinness of the material made it difficult to remove the tabs without distorting it. Now we’ve changed to a thicker material in black and silver to match your phone. It’s much easier to install. Orders shipping next week will include both black and silver version of the Rash Guard II.
We will offer the new Rash Guard II for sale soon on our website, and additional colors will follow.
