superhydrophobic spray

Ross Technology Corp. is a company from Austin, Texas that has been making high quality custom steel products since 1962.

about three years ago they needed a better way to reduce corrosion on the steel products they make, when they couldn’t find something suitable, they developed something on their own.

the product they developed is NeverWet – a silicon-based spray-on coating that repels water and heavy oils.

metal corrodes when it comes into contact with a liquid, so Ross engineers set about coming up with a coating to keep liquid away from the steel. what they ended up with not only kept steel dry, but could also be applied to many different surfaces and materials.

NeverWet products will be available to consumers in early 2012. register at for first notice.
