Ultra-Ever Dry

Ultra-Ever Dry is a liquid-repellent coating that acts as an astonishingly powerful shield against water and water-based materials. At the nano level, the spray covers a surface with an umbrella of air so that water bounces right off. Watch for an exciting two-minute kicker. In the TEDtalk above, you can watch Mark Shaw explain the science behind Ultra-Ever Dry and demonstrate the effectiveness of this hydrophobic nanotechnology.
