Superhydrophobic coatings, while not a new technology, is only just coming into the public eye and becoming commercially available. Water Armour is one of the first retail products to feature superhydrophobicity. What does that mean for you? The possibilities are nearly endless! Visit our Technology page for more information on how it works!
Why should I care about superhydrophobic technology?
The capabilities of superhydrophobic products are nearly endless. They repel water and resist fogging. This also means that ice and frost will have a hard time adhering to the surface (Applications:car windows, electrical lines, boats, walkways). Since bacteria needs moisture to grow, it will also help prevent their growth (Applications: bathroom, kitchen). Water can wear down surfaces over time due to abrasion, but since the water does not actually touch the coated surface, it is protected (Applications: roofing, boats, cars, plumbing). It can also help prevent the rotting of wood and the rusting of metals (Applications: decks, patios, and other outdoor structures and furniture). Since dirt, grease, grime, and other debris sits on top of the coating, it is easily cleaned with a splash of water giving them a self-cleaning effect (Applications: cars, decks and patios, kitchen, bathroom, walls, furniture). Even heavy soiling is more easily cleaned. Electronic components sensitive to water are also protected since the water cannot actually touch them (Applications: computers, phones, calculators, and other electronics that risk coming into contact with water).*
