Most surfaces are designed to work under dry conditions.
Water is often detrimental to materials when their surface becomes penetrated by moisture:
- Metal surfaces corrode and wood degrades.
- Electrical equipment (motors and switches) arc and fail.
- Clothing and other surfaces fail to insulate against weather.
- Cardboard packaging wilts and fails to protect its contents.
Neverwet provides a solution to these problems with NeverWet® superhydrophobic water-resistant coatings. NeverWet® water repellent spray coatings have remained under seawater for over a year and reemerged completely dry. When dirt and dust accumulate on one of our treated surfaces, water quickly flushes it away. The water is repelled by our coating, and the dirt is attracted to the water. More than just water resistant, our coatings maintain their superhydrophobic characteristics even under extreme conditions like high pressure spray.
