2. How long will Ultra-Ever Dry coating last? Answer: Environmental conditions will affect duration and these can vary. Abrasion is the leading cause of reduction in the superhydrophobic coating’s life. Under non-abrasive, static conditions, you should expect to see many years of outdoor service. Indoor applications will exceed that of outdoor applications.

It does look really cool. It's pricey so I guess it will boil down to how it resists abrasion to determine if it's worth it or not. Would be an awesome undercoating if it can hold up.

It doesn't sound like a good idea for items that you would regularly wash though Craig

Posted on this just a bit earlier. Looks like their marketing campaign is working.

Inside door channels? Inside frame rails instead of Waxoyl?

I want to put this on my hood right where all of the water collects when I'm on the highway driving in the rain, and see if that inch of rain still pools there. On the boots would also be good, for when the water inevitably comes out on my feet while I'm driving.
