Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating that claims to completely repel almost any liquid. Objects sprayed with the two-part system, which consists of a top and bottom coat, become impervious.

Gloves dipped in mud come out clean, and boots don’t get covered in wet concrete. If applied to a smartphone, it could be fully submerged in a glass of water without being harmed.

Ultra-Ever Dry uses nanotechnology to coat an object and create a barrier of air on its surface, which repels water, oil and other liquids. It’s superior coating adherence and abrasion resistance allows it to be used in all kinds of applications where durability is required, and it should last for many years.

The bottom coat takes around 20-30 mins to cure and it requires 5-10 mins for the top coat. Once it has been applied, the working temperature range is from -34°c to 149°c. Ultra-Ever Dry is said to work with almost any material including steel, aluminum, plastic, leather, fabric, wood, and concrete. You can check out the product video below to see it in action:
