Re: Super hydrophobic coating product

That was my first thought, RainX beware. They don't have a translucent application yet is the answer.

Edit- There you go, transparent would be the proper adjective.

Rain-X already has something to be worried about...Aquapel.

Aquapel on my windshield from last May is still holding its own. Not like it was at first application, but really, after 9 months...its got rain-x beat by 8 months!

I would like to see this on raingear, umbrellas, (if food safe...inside peanutbutter jars, syrups, honey...), paint containers, caulkguns, ... anything that has some kinda material that is resistant to removal-expulsion...
Might be good in automotive applications (doubtful of cylinders due to heat...but maybe oil pans or other liquid passages), outside of cars or underneath, wheel wells...
Tarps, roofing, gutters... lots of opportunities

I read once that certain nano-gear was banned from swimmers and competition. I think they had zero resistance in water...wonder how hulls could do with this (if it doesn't wear off)...
