    Protection for your non-water proof electronics

    Hey guys. I'm not really in RC much anymore, but after running across this stuff, I instantly thought of the Traxxas forums. This stuff looks great! http://junkee.com/someone-invented-m...g-us-out/14880

    Forget the electronics!!! Think of how fast a Spartan would go with this coating on the bottom!!!!! I'm buying some. I'll let you know how it works.

    Wow. Wonder if it resists nitro? Might just do the whole car.

    Water phobic chemicals have been around for a while. Never wet is a good one and you can get it at a few hardware stores. You can order industrial grade water phobic online but never wet should be good but it will only last as good as spray paint

    I researched the stuff and people say it doesn't adhere well, almost instantly wears off with any kind of movement or abrasion, leaves a weird white/silver milky color, and leaves the surface with a rough texture. I guess the inside of an ESC or RX would be ok but probably not something I want to put on the Spartan... or my clothes, shoes, furniture, phone, or almost anything else.

    There was a news article about that stuff on our local news... After washing a set of nice canvas sneakers they looked like they were shedding...

    If nothing sticks to it, how do you get it to adhere to where you apply it? Same problem with most non-stick coatings....

    It's a two part coating. The top coat is the hydrophobic one. I'd hope they made the base coat so that it adhered to any material as well as the top coat.

    I read some of the reviews and i'm not impressed at all. Real world use is better than any advertisement until its proven. For an RC boat I bet it would be the bees knees.

    I also read that UV does a number on it. Hmmmm

    I soaked mine for 24 hours, let it drip for 24 hours, and then reassembled and used it.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
