Just came across an interesting new nano-coating called NeverWet from Ross Nanotechnology. With a contact angle over 160 degrees, water and other fluids glide right off. The coating is applied via a spray or dipping process and can last for 2 years or more. They have offered applications from pipes that resist corrosion to anti-bacterial surfaces. Some neat stuff. What could you use it for?
Perhaps an anti-bacterial toilet plunger?
