SuperHydrophobic means Super Water Repellent. A superhydrophobic surface sheds water like drops on a lotus leaf.

Transparent Superhydrophobic Coating

The team is glad to present the new transparent superhydrophobic coating which was recently developed. Based on a simple idea, we use common and low cost materials to create a transparent superhydrophobic coating. Take a look at the result:

The procedure followed is fast and does not demand any special equipment.

The team continues the development of the coating and is looking for potential partners to support the further research and improvment of the coating.

Please do not hesitate to contact Panagiotis Manoudis for more information: contact information.

This would be awesome for those waterless urinals (I wonder how bad the splashback would be).

How transparent is your coating to mid-IR?

Hi my name is David Valasek.
We are establishing a new company to promote advanced materials to wider audience in USA.
Let me know more details about your transparent coatings.
Also some kind of pricelist on orders 200 and 1000 liters or more.
The material we are looking for should be completely clear.
Not visible on glass when applied.
We also need to know the durability of your product
thank David
PS:I`m writing using my personal email because our website is in process of redesigning.

How does it work with Spray Paint. I work for a city dealing with Grafitti. I would like to apply this to limestone. I was also wondering about removal. For example Putting is on a painted surface. At some point the surface will likely need to be re-painted how would that be achieved?
Thank you

The water contact angle of polystyrene is 90~95 degree, we want
to get super hydrophobic surface with water contact angle large
than 105~110 degree could your products can fit our requirement?

Are your products available for purchase and sample testing?
Durability, application, curing, applicable to porous and non-porous surfaces, hardness meter, response to wear & tear like wipers for example, temp at application, self cleaning?

If you folks ever develop a truly clear coating that can be applied to acrylic, please let me know. I ride motorcycles and this would be a really big bonus for my helmet’s visor and the windscreen of my bikes.

Hello Mr Manoudis,

Will you make your super-hydrophobic coating product (the one that uses common and low cost materials) available for commercial use?

Try to partner with Seaspecs. They need a coating like this. I would buy them.


July 30, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Kommenter: I’m looking for the superhydrophobic coating product just like yours. Can you provide some detail information and spec (include: anti-scratch, anti-fog, transparency, durability) with price.

I want to sell your product, but before i want to try.

I tried the Never Wet and i’m not satisfied.

So how much is it to try the product ? I’m from Montreal.
