Without giving away our proprietary “recipe,” we want to let consumers know the reasons behind NeverWet’s popularity.
What is NeverWet?
Our sprays and coatings add superhydrophobic and oleophobic technology to surfaces. Superhydrophobic means something that fears water, or greatly repels water. Oleophobic means something that fears oil or greatly repels it. The combined superhydrophobic and oleophobic properties of our product makes it highly useful for protecting items from water, dirt, grime, and dust.
Superhydrophobic products force surfaces to repel liquids by forming a contact angle. The liquid not only forms into droplets on surfaces protected with NeverWet, but those droplets also roll off and carry grime away with them. This can extend the life of products from umbrellas and shoes to commercial-grade fabrics used by designers globally in many industries.

There’s a reason we’ve been around for decades! Yes, NeverWet technology does work. Well-known brands like Totes, BearPaw, and Dockers trust us to help protect their products.

The magic is in science and yet, it’s not any more mystical than knowing how the lotus naturally repels water and dirt. It repels water and keeps dirt with a combination of superhydrophobic and oleophobic properties (see explanation above).
Can You Use NeverWet On Glass?

Can You Use NeverWet On Leather or Suede?
Yes, Extreme Fabric Water & Mud Repellent is a one-step, superhydrophobic, liquid- and stain-repelling treatment designed to keep fabrics such as leather and suede dry longer. This product is a clear spray that is a fluorine-free water repellent.

Is NeverWet Breathable?
Regarding commercial fabric applications, yes. NeverWet Fabric Mill DWR, used at the textile mill level, is known to keep outdoor clothing like ScentLok Taktik rain gear dry while allowing moisture to pass through. This is especially important for hunting and outdoor apparel that needs to allow body heat to diffuse for the wearer to maintain comfort.
The breathability of a fabric depends on the proper application of the base coat.
Is NeverWet Safe On Skin?
The US Environmental Protection Agency has deemed NeverWet safe. However, it should never be applied directly to the skin. Proper application is on products in need of protection from stains and moisture.
How Long Does NeverWet Coating Last?
Sun exposure and other environmental conditions impact the longevity of our coatings. Abrasion can also threaten its efficacy. On average, items in outdoor conditions will maintain water-repellency for 6 months; indoor items will maintain repellency for about one year. Reapplication is recommended at the first signs of degradation.
Can I use NeverWet on My Cellphone?
No. NeverWet products should not be used on electronics, including cellphones.
