Neverwet spray coating keeps clothing dry

Postby KeyserSoze » Nov 12, 2012 12:08 am

This product seems like it could be a godsend for cavers. Can you imagine being able to take a dip through a water passage and come out of the water with completely dry clothes?

"At Ross Nanotechnology, we have developed a super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils. Any object coated with our NeverWet™ coating literally cannot be touched by liquid. Any liquid placed on this coating is repelled and simply rolls off without touching the underlying surface. Not only is this amazing to see, but it solves a myriad of problems."

Unfortunately it is not available for retail purchase currently.
This signature is really funny

Looks neat, but any coating will quickly wear off in a cave.

I agree with Scott that it would not work well in a cave environment, but I would love to spray it on the rain flap of my tent.
