NeverWet Faqs

    How abrasion resistant is Rust-Oleum NeverWet?

    Rust-Oleum NeverWet is resistant to normal wear and tear; however, with excessive abrasion or if applied to a walking surface, the superhydrophobic properties will be quickly diminished. In many situations, the superhydrophobic action may be reduced, but the remaining Top Coat and Base Coat still provide protection to the coated surface.

    Superhydrophobicity can be restored by scuff sanding the object to remove the residual Top Coat, and then recoating the object with Base Coat and Top Coat

    Are coated items “breathable”?

    The breath-ability of a coated item is dependent on how heavy the Base Coat is applied.

    The lighter the Base Coat, the more breathable the item will be. If a continuous, heavy film is applied, the surface will not be breathable.
