If the claim for this stuff is true I can see all kinds of possibilities for it of course they don't mention cost.

Man I can think of 25 things I could use that for.
The first one would be to get that river bottom ground in western Wisconsin to scour my plow instead of sticking.

That is amazing. This stuff could really change things in our lives. The first thing my wife asked (A Nurse) is if it is toxic?

Funny thing is I wondered the same thing. In one of the video clips there is one guy in what looks like a decontamination suite and respirator while the scientist is in just normal clothes. I'm looking forward to it's release for sure.

I could have missed something, but how long does an application last?

It looks like an awesome product. I too am curious though to the lifespan and durability over time per application.

I don't believe that the video mentioned a exact "lifespan" of the product, but there was mention that it's far more durable than anything else on the market.

I don't believe the mentioned cost or the exact lifespan as Caseguy mentioned. Can you imagine how durable you could make a GT or implement using this stuff and maybe truck bed liner?

It would be awesome if it will stand up to the abrasion of a plow moving through the dirt! At one point in the article they mentioned "thousands of rubs" referring to wiping an airplane down between flights. I have the notion that it wouldn't take long to grind it off of a plow share. Some of the toughest coatings that have come along thus far have been put on and they still come off in the dirt. Let's hope that this one is different!
I was thinking that it would make a right dandy undercoating...especially here in the rust belt states!
