NeverWet

It speaks for itself:

Ross Nanotechnology's NeverWet superhydrophobic spray-on coating - YouTube

OOOOH, what I would do with a can of that...

I think I would coat my entire bike, minus the rubber, and all my gear.

Think of the possibilities:

1) Rain gear that you put away DRY after a rainstorm
2) Bugs won't stick to your visor and water literally won't stay on it.
etc.

Although I wonder what would happen if you sprayed this in somebody's eyes?


And I'm sure there are 'other' applications, but those are best left to the imagination .

What would be reasonably priced? We're talking 100% waterproof motorcycle gear....... as an all weather rider that is really valuable.

They said mid-2012 was when it would be available.

I signed up as an investor contact as well, if these guys ever do an IPO, I want to be on top of it.

First thing that pop into my head, textile jacket, backpack, tankbag, boots. Not sure I'd try it on leathers... there's a review on HD that said it turns black leather into a dark blue.

Report back soon. Would love to see how this stuff works on helmet visors, riding gear, and car windshields. I wonder if you can get a true fog free visor from spraying it on both sides.

I'd think twice about applying to clothing, can't imagine it's breatheable. There's a reason Gore-tex rocks, you could end up soaked in sweat with this stuff.

Not to mention the industrial appliations. This stuff would be awesome to coat my mill table. In fact, I'm going to pitch it to my boss. See if I can get him to buy some.

The rustolem variety seems to not be clear once cured. Homedepots website says that its frost clear.

The Chive has a video by neverwet.

They took an iPhone apart, coated the internals and ports, then dropped it and left it in water, and it still works.

So my neverwet should be arriving today.

What are some things you guys would use it on? keep in mind it has a frosted finish, so glass, and glossy paint is a no go, at least for me


bike related or non bike related.


shower tile would be perfect. never have to clean the shower or grout again

You could apply it to the inside of your tale bag, if its not already water proof.

Great idea. My tank,tail, and soft saddlebags all have water proof covers that can be put on when raining.

So my buddy picked some up from Home Depot and this was the result. I don't think I will be using this as expected.
