    Rust-Oleum Stops Rust 18 oz. NeverWet Multi-Purpose Spray Kit

    http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/300/d0/d0c957a0-3b08-4a7d-8102-eaeac18d11db_300.jpg

    Here's a video of the hands on demo:

    Has anyone heard of this particular product?

    I know there has been a lot of internet exposure about these sort of methods, but this seems to have hit retail stores and consumers can buy it now.

    It's only $20 USD, and available in HOME DEPOT store..

    My real question is is the OCAU community interested in a bulk purchase? Also can you even ship Aerosole cans overseas easily?

    Saw a demo of this stuff a while ago, looked pretty impressive. Not sure how this retail stuff compares.

    From what I can find its the same stuff, just in spray can size for the consumer market (as opposed to the 44g drums factories or big businesses buy).
    Cheers,

    Serious? My first thought was to coat a PC with this and drop it in a 44gal drum haha. Water cooling on the cheap.

    Cooling would suck, the same barrier that prevents the parts getting wet would mess up heat transfer (likely there would be a trapped layer of air over everything). I doubt it works properly for complete immersion anyway.

    May I ask how you got it shipped over?

    Perhaps I can buy a kit from you?

    Or if you share how you got it shipped, I might even ship a bunch to myself and just resell them or pickup to the OCAU community.

    A Few comments from the post on gizmodo:

    Posted this on the Kotaku article as well.
    Ok so here is a few facts.

    It washes off with soap, and other chemicals like oils (eg natural skin oils) and solvents can eat away at the coating.
    It's only available in the US at the moment (At Home Depot)
    You can not use it on your skin. The MSDS makes it seem very similar to spray paint. So don't inhale etc.
    It does not dry clear. It's frosty, so windscreens, glasses, phone screens etc are out.
    People have used it on things like black shoes and boots. It leaves a frosty white residue. So dark items of clothing a probably not a great idea.
    The product recommends to not use it on electronics. This is probably because it's not proven to work on it. It could react with certain other materials, it could damage your phone more than protect it - use at your own risk.
    It repels water. It will not make you float, it will not make your boat or surfboard go quicker.
    Also it comes off with friction, so any surfaces that are "high traffic" or get folds or wrinkles like shirts are no good.

    Realistically I think it has more industrial uses for corrosion protection and waterproofing than home uses.
    And for the most part, there are already products that do similar things for windshields, shoes etc...

    I was very excited for this, and it would be fun to play around with, but after reading more about it my enthusiasm was diminished.

    how much did it end up costing you per kit?

    how well did it work?
    does it stand up to UV rays or just flake off (like i have read elsewhere?)

    anyone know how good Ultra ever dry is?
    and if its better against UV resistant?
    and available in aust?

    well thats all i needed to see, if it comes off quite easily that rules out my uses.

    I was thinking as a dirt deterrent for the car, perhaps on the interior as well to keep mud and stuff from sticking.

    but by the sounds of it, it'd be soaking up that dirt in no time. would like to see some real uses if it's only a short term thing.

    So Scotchgard may not be quite as repellent but still remains the most practical.

    NeverWet

    re someone's earlier question. Did you find a supplier of NeverWet [liquid repellent] in Australia?
    OR have you found a reliable overseas supplier?

    As I am trying to get some, I hope you can help me.
    Thanking you,

    Pat Ferguson, Queensland.

    not on electronics?
    I've seen a video instruction/demo (I think by president) of the product being used on an iPhone, inside, and out, then drops in water while it's on, and it still works
    Ahh ...

    so i just got one from a supplier her in Aus.
    Home depot bought them all so thats why they arent on the shelves here.

    Australia will have them next year at your big green warehouses. :)

    arch: how did you go with coating your toilet bowl?

    Yeah, but put that phone in your pocket for a week... Is it still going to remain never wet?

    I'd like some for the Oil drip tray.. should make it faster to empty, and no layer of oil in it after.

    I really think spraying it all over an iphone is a bit retarded idea though. Way to potentially ruin your phone and make it look like arse when it starts peeling off randomly.
