    NeverWet

    Awesome technology watch the videos specially on the electronics.

    At Ross Nanotechnology, we have developed a super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils. Any object coated with our NeverWet™ coating literally cannot be touched by liquid. Any liquid placed on this coating is repelled and simply rolls off without touching the underlying surface. Not only is this amazing to see, but it solves a myriad of problems.

    I have loads of uses for this, not just as conformal coating... Price? availability? those are my only real questions

    im just a little confused on how this applies to watercooling. wouldnt this product interfere with the thermal characteristics of a liquid?

    This would be great for coating mobos and circuitboards, so if you have a leak it wouldn't short anything.

    yeah its called vasoline.... we've used it for many years on phase and LN2.
    Guys like Gautam, have a system down to where cleanup is even easy for them when they cake on the vasoline.



    sorry i had to say it...


    This product is FAIL for us tho.... without any hydrophillic interaction with water you cant do heat transfers.
    And with water being naturally non conductive until you get it contaminated... well, dont contaminate your coolant instead of spending god knows how many dollars protecting your other EQ and possibly hindering heat transfer though the coating.

    Meh... reminds me of tony and his journey with graphite..
    He learned very quickly how much hydrophobic material SUCKS in our hobby. :X

    I don't see how this is any different from the silicone gell and other grease we already slather onto the boards when doing LN2 cooling?

    How the hell is this product different from conformal coating(<link), a product which has been on the market for quite a while now?

    This stuff is different because it actively pushes the water off... their term "superhydrophobic". In other terms, vasoline would insulate a board, but the water would sit on top of the vasoline. If this stuff were applied (which would be very hard, considering you can't figure out where you've applied it), the water would more actively be repelled. This isn't a viable solution, however, because it doesn't search for the edges of the board, it would probably end up repelling the water underneath a PCI slot or something.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.

    My thoughts where to put this on top of conformal coating and benching ln2 with the board slightly slanted bottom up?

    Put it on the windshield and you've got RainX
    Put it on your clothes and you have... whatever product already does that.
    Put it on ice-blocks in Minecraft, and you have a track to throw stuff down :P

    You're searching for goretex I believe.

If this stuff were applied (which would be very hard, considering you can't figure out where you've applied it), the water would more actively be repelled. This isn't a viable solution, however, because it doesn't search for the edges of the board, it would probably end up repelling the water underneath a PCI slot or something.
    Silicone gell + angle the board does the same thing.

    Would there be any advantages in coating the inside of tubing with this stuff?
