Re: Super hydrophobic coating product

Believe me, I'm not rushing out to buy any. You also bring up many valid points. To play devil's advocate here though. Back to the coils. What if this product surpasses its predecessors. If it does such a good job repelling water that water won't have a chance to stick to the coils?

I hear you on the longevity issue as well. Believe they address that as well discussing abrasion vs the coating, interior vs exterior application, etc.

Just because it's a hydrophobic surfaces doesn't mean it won't freeze. Ask anyone who lives in the north who uses Rain-X if they still have to scrape frost on their windows. If the coils are cold enough, there's a chance that the droplets will still freeze, regardless if they are "sticking" to the coils. And once that starts, the accumulated ice will just grow and grow.
