Say Goodbye to Moisture with Ultra-Ever Dry

November 23, 2014

Introducing Ultra-Ever Dry a new waterproof coating that completely repels almost any liquid it comes into contact with. 

 

Suited to a wide variety of applications, Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating and uses proprietary nanotechnology to coat an object and create a barrier of air on its surface. This protective barrier repels water, oil and other liquids unlike any coating seen before. 

 

Applied in two parts, the bottom coat bonds to most materials and acts as a consistent material for the top coat to bond to while inter acting with the top coat to self-assemble the surface into a nano-textured surface. 

 

Once applied, the protected surface creates patterns of geometric shapes and billions of interstitial spaces that trap and hold air creating an “umbrella of air” on the surface of the coating. There are high points in the texture that only allow the water droplets to touch approximately 2-3% of the coating itself. The rest of the water droplet rides along the layer of trapped air. 

 

Ultra-Ever Dry creates a solid/liquid contact angle of 160-175 degrees. Well-known windshield water repellents are closer to 110 degrees and are only hydrophobic. A superhydrophobic contact angle allows for the self-cleaning properties associated with Ultra-Ever Dry. Oleophobic refers to the ability to repel oil and other hydrocarbons.

 

Once coated and treated, users will be able to use less water for clean up and applying the coating will be a great step towards preventative maintenance and reducing ongoing cleaning costs.

 

Ultra-Ever Dry can be applied with a spray gun and finishes up to a translucent white sheen. A single coating will last anywhere from 12 months in direct sunlight and outdoor conditions before a top-coat re-coating is needed. Indoor and protected outdoor applications put longevity at approximately one to two years.

 

Applicable to industries such as marine, construction, concrete, electrical and transport and will adhere to almost any material such as steel, aluminium, galvanised metal, plastic, leather, fabric, canvas, wood, concrete etc. The coating can be applied to and will bond to smooth surfaces, but sanding the surface will improve adhesion.

 

Ultra-Ever Dry can be used to treat the underside of an industrial truck to reduce splashing of mud and concrete and aid with clean up. It could be used in milking sheds to help reduce the amount of water needed to wash down. Or to simply protect electrical componentry in outdoor pumps and switches from moisture and corrosion.

Ultra-Ever Dry can be used to coat anything you want to be self-cleaning when it rains or easier to clean, anything that needs to dry immediately after it rains, any metal for corrosion protection, coating anything you do not want ice to form on or be easily removed from, coating anything you do not want bacteria on.

 

Ultra-Ever Dry can be used on a wide variety of daily applications, such as: boots & footwear, nuts, bolts and other hardware, bricks, concrete trucks and pumps, stairs, railings & catwalks, clothing / apparel, engines, building supplies, tools & equipment, machinery, paint equipment, electric motors, air stripper trays, paper mill wet section equipment, work vehicles, off road vehicles, water proofing and water resistant coating for concrete, the list goes on!
