This new to me product seems amazing.. Not sure how I'll use it yet, but really slick!

Re: Waterproof

Wow, I am thinking they should formulate that into a car wax, it would make cleaning and maintaining a breeze!

Re: Waterproof

Pretty amazing stuff, I hope it becomes cost effective or at least affordable,
imagine what that could do for your wetsuit or even boat hulls, no drag or friction.

Re: Waterproof

Seems that I have seen this before, pretty pricy and maybe needs a reapplication after a year.

Re: Waterproof

Cool stuff, since it uses nano technology. Have used car wax called nano wax, did a pretty good job.

Dan I have been using pure silicone from dive gear on the LT's compartment gaskets for a long time. They are still in great shape.

Re: Waterproof

Neat stuff.

So what happens if you coat the inside of a drinking glass (all surfaces) with this product? Does the water "hover" inside the glass because it's so superhydrophbic?

A very interesting material albeit a bit pricy! However, if and when the transparent version becomes available sounds like it would be great on the windscreen and helmet visor to keep rain from accumulating. Also, how about a coating on the front of the bike for Florida Love Bug season. Maybe the Love Bug guts would just slide right off! Wouldn't that be great? How about on the wheels maybe the brake dust wouldn't accumulate. Probably lots of other possible applications. OH yea, did I say it's pricy?
