Super hydrophobic coatings have been all over the internet recently, but have you ever noticed that they all seem to be demonstrated on white shoes and white shirts? If you’ve tried out these new technologies you may have found for yourself that the reason for this is that they leave a white filmy layer on the surface.
That is, until you try Nanex’s AquaShield water repellent nano-coating, which claims to be “THE truly transparent water repellent nano-coating”. In the video below you can see a real first; super hydrophobic coatings on shoes of all colors, even a close up of a pair of black suede shoes with not a trace of white.
Nano-coatings are thin spray on films so small that you would need a microscope to see them, one-billionth of a metre thick to be exact. AquaShield uses this technology to create super hydrophobic surfaces that cause any water based fluid to ball up and try to roll away from the surface. It literally scares water away!
