    NeverWet is not recommended for use on clothing. Rust-Oleum NeverWet will adhere to most fabrics, but dries to a flat milky haze with a chalky feel. Test in an inconspicuous area before applying to the entire surface.

    Can NeverWet be applied to glass?


    Yes, but the glass will no longer be transparent. NeverWet dries to a Flat Frosted Clear color, therefore, it should never be applied to windshields or automobile windows. NeverWet will work on any glass that you want to have superhydrophobic properties, but don’t need to see through.

    Can Rust-Oleum NeverWet be used on surfaces that are continuously submerged?


    Rust-Oleum NeverWet relies on a layer of air to form the superhydrophobic coating on the surface of the object. For this reason the product is not recommended for surfaces continuously submerged in water or liquid.

    NeverWet is formulated to work specifically with water-based liquids. Liquids containing oils, detergents, or solvents will remove the Top Coat and reduce the superhydrophobic properties.
