    Super hydrophobic coating video

    I regularly visit a tech website and they had this linked up. Amazing stuff to see. There is a spot in the video where drops of water actually bounce.

    I want to coat the entire Jeep in that stuff. Pull in the garage after driving in the rain and it would be dry. It's like UQD on steroids!

    I had to edit your post due to unilateral forum rules, nothing personal.

    For those of you who want to view the video (It was harmless, and quite interesting.) You can copy and paste the remaining portion of the link into your browser and simply add "www." before it.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Wow! That was some amazing tech. I note that the Sandia Lab is owned by Lockheed Martin so, the mil applications seem obvious.

    Can I get my cars coated, now?

    Only problem... what happens when I get a scratch?
