Clear coating developed for the military has incredible potential for solar, wind and other alternative sources of energy.
Traditional hydrophobic coatings are clear and abrasion resistant but do not shed fluid easily. Superhydrophobic coatings are generally great at shedding water but are not clear, and are easily removed. Whether it’s abrasion resistance, oil repellency or visual clarity, conventional coatings have their limitations.
Jacksonville, FL - May 29, 2017 ‐ UltraTech International, Inc., leaders in the environmental compliance industry have recently added Gentoo coating to their product line. This advanced, clear, hydrophobic coating combines features and properties never seen before in a coating. Watch the video on our webpage.
Gentoo is a clear coating that not only repels water but most oils and solvents as well. It is also able to withstand significant abrasion without sacrificing performance.
