Interesting.  I need clothes sprayed with this stuff the next time I go to that all-you-can-eat barbeque joint!

This has most certainly a geocaching application... I think.

Very cool!   Just think of the applications!

 

KeyResults was wondering if you could spray on paper and still write on it. Make your own write in the rain paper!!

I was thinking about that, but you'd probably have to use pencil only.  The paper would repel any ink!

It is a 2 part spray process and does not really dry clear. It may be cheaper to just buy all weather paper. UV light kills it really fast.

Tim, do you mean UV kills the waterproof paper or the never-wet coating?

 

Agreed there are some really interesting options.

According to reviews, UV kills the never-wet coating over time.  It's more of a one-time or temporary use thing than a permanent outdoor waterproofer.  It also dries to a milky white haze.  Also, one $19 kit will cover about 15 square feet of space, or about 23 - 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper.  That works out to $0.82 per sheet of home-made waterproof paper (not counting the cost of the paper itself).  A 200 sheet pack or Rite-in-the-Rain paper costs about 15 cents per sheet.

Yes, UV kills the never wet coating.

This is a really cool product but the part that bothers me was that they violated their own safety standards in almost every demo.  This stuff is bad for constant skin contact and not recommended for electronic use. What did they do? Put it on a white shirt and shoes (it dries white) and then on an iphone. The MSDS for this is pretty scary and I would be very careful what you use it on.

Not sure how that last post came out the way it did but... Yes, UV kills the Never-Wet coating pretty fast. While it works, it works well though.

As I said earlier, it is not clear when dry so take that into consideration when using it.
