Never wet coating

So I have been following the development of this product for about 2 years now and now they have partnered with rustolem to bring a 2 part coating system to market. As the owner of a black JKU it makes my man parts tingle at the prospect of coating the whole jeep in this. I have sent an email to the company to find out if it is automotive glass and paint safe. They have a video of them coating an iPhone so I can't I bet it could be used. At the very least as an undercoating it could do wonders for mud removal.

I just saw this on the chive! I saw its development earlier this year and I'm glad they made it into a spray paint. I think I'm going to tape off around my windshield and try it out. For $20 it cover 15sq ft so for $40 I should be able to coat the whole jeep some day also Coastiejohn I'm a fellow coastie.

I wonder how that would do on my boots. Stuff looks like scotch guard on steroids. Oh, and I'm also a Coastie.

As a boatswain mate I can think of hundreds of applications as long as it is clear. I ordered from Home Depot online so will start to play around with it on different stuff. I have an old pair of super boots I will try coating as well. then I will start underneath the jeep and try it out on a piece of glass in the house to see if it hazes.

Neat idea but bet your shoes would be nasty little swamps of sweat after a day of hiking.

Vid says it leaves a frosted appearance on whatever you use it on, so id say no windshields.

I sent an email asking about that. One of their vids shows them coating an iPhone in and out and the front glass looked like it had no haze. But it is also why I am going to play with it off the jeep first to see what it actually does.

If nothing else it would be a great idea inside your wheelwells and if you had a mud panel are on the rockers. I wonder how long it lasts.

I saw how they did the iphone. They opened the phone and sparyed the internals. Then with a q-tip soaked in the stuff they dabbed it into the ports.

Gore-tex shouldn't need it; it has its own repellent (DWR) that reconditions itself after washing and thorough drying (most people don't realize this, but Gore-tex actually benefits from regular cleaning.) If water still doesn't bead up and roll away after that, you can always get some spray-on DWR from most outdoor stores.

I might have to wash it then, I usually just get it wet in the rain and let it dry. I'm currently stationed on the great lakes so I don't have to worry about getting salty

Just saw the vid for this and I'm curious about it as well.
Friend is going to try it on his RC Cars. I can think of a few places I'd like to try it. Seats come to mind.

I've seen people try this on other forums, it rubs off fast. On one of the gun forums a guy put it on some mags just to see and it worked amazing at first, but they did not last long

This stuff is cool, but its not ready yet. Its a step in the right direction
