this stuff is actually pretty good. i haven't washed my wheels for probably a month now and it's held up pretty good against our current weather heh.

i just hate that it's a dinky spray bottle and costs $12.99

Depending on price, I would be interested... even if I have no real use for it.

I'm sure I'll find something to spray this stuff on.

I dunno about football or basketball...

But yah stick blades, or i would try it on the skate runners. So theres no snow build up on them and would work better on bad ice.

Or even just gloves and bandana during snowboarding...oh the possibilities. I need this stuff now.

I would use this and put it on dirty dishes so when the person tries to wash the dishes the water just falls off

This link states that "the instructions make it pretty clear that you arenít supposed to use this on electronics or clothing," but the box says you can use it on fabric, leather and canvas. So I'm not sure what to think LOL

so many possibilities. from what i saw in the video, for the shoes and clothing they used all neutral colours or white. i wonder if this stuff discolours anything?

especialy since the inside of the beer cooler cardboard box was kinda whiteish.

edit: just read the review it says exactly that. kinda ruins this for me.

I would trowel this stuff all over my work boots. That way I don't need to wear my stupid heavy rubber boots when I work out in the wet.

If you spray this on the hull of a ship or a submarine, will you decrease friction to notice a speed difference?

Kind of tempted to get some just to waterproof my goddamn umbrellas and backpacks. No more wet papers in the bag. Actually, might be a good idea for the inside. No more worries about spills.


Hmmm....

It dries frosted, not clear, and looks like it's really easy to rub it off


Skip to 2:24 to watch him peel it off with his fingers

after watching videos, it seems the coating can easily be damaged by touching it (oils on hand) or just by simply rubbing against it. Very fragile.

Sadly this "technology" is only good for one thing, informercials.

A couple years ago there was a long list of people who basically determined the product had no real practical application. It's very sensitive to temperature and has poor abrasion resistance. This is why it's marketed to consumers and is not being widely used in any major industry.

Give a can to CIC so he can do a proper science fair experiment. I will only believe how good this product is until he endorses it.
