Neverwet should have many boating applications

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

One of you dry racers should give it a shot.

Now, if only they could modify it to work as bottom paint. Boats would really slip through the water! Even heavy displacement tubs.

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

I wonder how good it is for keeping bird droppings from sticking to canvas. It might be a better water replent for dodgers.

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

I wonder how slippery it is once applied. It would be neat to put that on the topsides to make clean-up easier.

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

Maybe I will try it on the bottom of my RIB. Always looking for something to make it go faster and keep the growth off without using anti-fouling paint.

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

Sorry, it's not gonna turn a "heavy displacement tub" into a rocket ship...

From the FAQs:

Quote:

Can Rust-Oleum NeverWet be used on surfaces that are continuously submerged?

Rust-Oleum NeverWet relies on a layer of air to form the superhydrophobic coating on the surface of the object. For this reason the product is not recommended for surfaces continuously submerged in water or liquid.

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

"developer Ross Nanotechnology licensed the product to Rust-Oleum, which recently started selling the spray for $19.97 at Home Depot."

No, really, copyright laws expressly allow you to post this stuff directly.

Scotchguard look out!

Re: Neverwet should have many boating applications

This is a similar product geared more toward large scale applications. The videos are pretty interesting to watch.

The first video is from a TED conference and gives you some background on the technology.

Ultra Ever Dry

This is pretty amazing stuff but its not cheap at around $63/qt for the primer and $106/qt for the top coat.

But think about ways to use this stuff. As a coating for canvas, on isinglass, as a coating for your deck instead of wax, as a coating inside your head and holding tank...

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
