This video seems to have gone viral,  so what do you think ?

 

 

 

If genuine i think this stuff is incredible, ok its not cheap but i would imagine it would stop rust occuring? it would have a multitude of uses and if nothing else will keep things clean, according to the info in non abrasive areas it will work for many years, i think i would spray my car with it, would never have to wash it again...

Looking through the MSDS on it, spraying it on with a gun would be about the same as spraying paint. Nothing overly toxic about it. Most of the chemicals used in it are harmful at a level that would be controllable with a very well ventilated area, or spraying outdoors. Gloves, respirator, and eye protection.

 

If using a respirator, you'd want one with a black labeled filter, for organic vapors. Some may have a gray stripe, which means it filters out particles also.

$150 for a quart. Well, one quart of bottom coat, and one of top coat. That will do 37.5 square feet according to them. While it says it does not hold up as well in an abrasive surface, I would skip using it on a mower deck. The top coat layer of that has silica in it. Granted, it's only 2-4 % of the total in the bottle, but still something to keep in mind.

 

I want to spray all the valleys on my roof with that stuff.

From their website:

 

10. What color is the superhydrophobic coating?  
Answer: The standard product is a translucent white. We do not have a transparent formula at this time.  Custom colors are available upon request, minimums may apply. It is recommended to try the superhydrophobic coating in an inconspicuous area first if color is important.

While watching the video, my wife says, "I want that for my (motorcycle) windsheild".

BUT, it is a "translucent white", and may not work on a windsheild.

That sure is neat looking .  Thanks for sharing.

 

Gonna have to look into how it holds up over time and the elements.

I found on their website what their score was doing an abrasion test, but I have no idea on how to read the score:

 

 How abrasion-resistant is Ultra-Ever Dry SE 7.6.110?  
Answer: One of the breakthroughs for this product is its abrasion resistance. The proprietary material provides more abrasion resistance than previous superhydrophobic materials, registering a result of 110 on the Tabor Abrasion Method (ASTM D4060-10). If abrasion is a concern, testing is recommended. If the superhydrophobic coating is removed due to abrasion, it can be reapplied by re-spraying.
