It's science at its mind-blowing best

CONCORD, ON, Sept. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - The product everyone is talking about has officially arrived in Canada at The Home Depot - Rust-Oleum® NeverWet. This remarkable new superhydrophobic coating protects all kinds of surfaces, repelling rain, mud, ice and other water-based liquids in dramatic fashion. You've never seen water behave this way before!

"At Rust-Oleum®, we're changing the way people think about water protection," commented Shelley Lebert, Brand Manager for Rust-Oleum®. "Not only is the breakthrough technology amazing to see in action, it also solves a number of problems around the home and outdoors. When you keep your stuff dry, it stays free of rust and mould as well. NeverWet is so cool we've coined a new word to describe it - SuperHydrophobicFantastic!"

When water hits a flat, untreated surface, it pools and just sits there like a deflated ball, causing the object to become saturated. But it's a very different story when that surface is treated with NeverWet. Creating a contact angle of up to 165 degrees - more than three times the contact angle of an untreated surface, and almost double that of the leading competitive product - NeverWet causes water droplets to form nearly perfect spheres. Like marbles of water, these spheres then glide or even bounce off the surface, leaving it clean and dry. And when water isn't allowed to sit, surfaces are protected from the harmful effects of moisture like rust, corrosion, wear, mould, ice, bacteria - and the list goes on.

NeverWet can be applied to almost any surface, including metal, concrete, wood, aluminum, galvanized metal, PVC, masonry, asphalt, vinyl siding, paper, plastic and more. It can also be used on fabric, leather and canvas. NeverWet even protects surfaces from thicker liquids like syrups, juices and other water-based condiments. Don't believe it? Try it for yourself and share your experiments with the NeverWet Lab:

NeverWet is applied in a simple two-step process:

1. Spray on NeverWet Base Coat and allow product to dry for 30 minutes.

2. Once dry, apply one or two coats of the NeverWet Top Coat and allow to dry again.

NeverWet applies clear and dries to a frosted haze. It can be exposed to water in as little as 30 minutes after the final application of Top Coat, and is fully cured in 12 hours. NeverWet can be reapplied when water no longer beads and rolls off the surface. One kit of NeverWet provides 10 to 15 square feet of coverage.
