New Rust Proofing?

I saw this article while learning things on the internet... Not super jeep related, but anything that prevents water and dirt from hitting my metal body seems like something worth looking into. Just thought you guys might be interested in the future of rust and corrosion prevention.

P.S. It is also UV resistant!

From a chemists point of view, this is pretty legit. The health concerns raised in the comments section though is also very real. For the exact same reason you need a respirator when you sand blast, aerosolized SiO2 can cause immense damage to your lungs.

but handled properly and IF its as plyable as they say, this could be the new coating of the future for frames and tubs, although i doubt it handles flying rocks and debris as well as a good thick layer of POR-15 or the like. Keep in mind they were talking about a layer only a 100nm thick. A pebble could pretty easily break through that small of a layer of what is essentially glass.

1985 CJ7 Project
Phase One : 5.3L Vortec/4L60E, Moser axles for AMC20, Twin Stick'd Dana300 - Completed
Phase Two: Bedliner, Rollcage, Seats, BESRK Rear Bumper w/ tire swing, Soft Top, and a few other goodies - Mostly Complete
Phase Three: Waggy 44 front, Scout D44 Rear, 4.56's, ARB's (F/R) SOA with YJ Springs, 35x12.50x15 BFG MT - Not Even Close to beginning

Also a mostly rust-free 1970 Scout 800A That I'll get to start working on someday...

From what I've been reading about it though, they're looking at somewhere around 8 bucks a can - with that price I wouldn't be surprised if they started spraying it at car washes and the like...
