Re: New bottom coating perhaps?

Here are the thoughts that ran through my mind as I watched the video:

Hardness rating? Brittleness? How clear is this actual coating? If we put it on glass, what are its refractive properties? How does it filter natural light? Is it transparent to UV? Depending on the answers, coating windshields might be a good answer. How about coating eisenglass?

Granted, it is hydrophobic and oleophobic, but what does it react with, and what are the byproducts? Does it release aerosols 1. when applied, 2. after application and curing? If so, what are they? Is this stuff that is safe for humans to be around indoors?
