More than 800,000 views in 48 hours - New coating repels almost any liquid

Really neat stuff!

Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating that will completely repel almost any liquid. Ultra-Ever Dry uses proprietary nanotechnology to coat an object and create a barrier of air on its surface. This barrier repels water, oil and other liquids unlike any coating seen before. The other breakthrough associated with Ultra-Ever Dry is the superior coating adherence and abrasion resistance allowing it to be used in all kinds of applications where durability is required.

Because it's "proprietary" and they don't reveal what the nanosubstance is, I'm wondering if it's the first commercially patented form of graphene oxide, which has similar hydrophobic abilities. I've been following the studies of graphene since I first became aware of it -- a near-miraculous material with some really exotic properties.

invisible hand of the marketplace to guide us. If there's any problem with it, a few people will get sick, maybe become debilitated for life or possibly die. Or maybe it'll kill off some biosphere that didn't really look all that important (at first). But hey, the rest of us will just stop buying it, the company will go out of business, and problem is solved. No need for big gov't liberal EPA to upset the apple cart too soon before a healthy profit can be made for the original investors before the business can be dumped onto somebody else who can be the scapegoat for when it all falls apart..

21. Hadn't heard until I read your post. Here's the Wiki....

Scotchgard is a 3M brand of products, a stain repellent and durable water repellent applied to fabric, furniture, and carpets to protect them from later stains.

The original formula for Scotchgard was discovered accidentally in 1952 by 3M chemists Patsy Sherman and Samuel Smith. Sales began in 1956, and in 1973 the two chemists received a patent for the formula.

In 1999, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began an investigation into the class of chemicals used in Scotchgard, after receiving information on the global distribution and toxicity of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), the "key ingredient" of Scotchgard. The compound perfluorooctanesulfonamide (PFOSA), a PFOS precursor, was an ingredient and also has been described as the "key ingredient" of Scotchgard. Under USEPA pressure, in May 2000 3M announced the phaseout of the production of PFOA, PFOS, and PFOS-related products.

3M reformulated Scotchgard and since June 2003 has replaced PFOS with perfluorobutanesulfonic acid (PFBS). PFBS has a much shorter half-life in people than PFOS (a little over one month vs. 5.4 years). In May 2009 PFOS was determined to be a persistent organic pollutant (POP) by the Stockholm Convention.

The podcast has some professionals who are kind of on the pro-nanotech bandwagon, and not enough questions are fielded, but it's still a pretty decent listen. The first part of it has the author reading a good deal of her essay. Also, that site usually has great input in the article's comments section.

Attended a lecture by Philip Morrison from MIT in the 70s. The big worry then was The Bomb.

70. Familiar, but not entirely clear...

Since scientists have kept upping the number of presumed planets, does that mean the odds are increasing?

Anyway, reminds me of something Terence McKenna said in regards to the way we've been burning through resources so rapidly:

"The problem is, energy can be used to destroy as well as build. So as the human enterprise has moved toward greater and greater power, and ability to manipulate the environment, the stakes in the cosmic game have risen. And now what we have is approximately $100 billion sitting in the center of the crap table, and one roll of the dice more and we’re going to either win it or lose everything. Because intelligence, if we fail, will never again reach the kind of levels on this planet that we have reached.

Why? Because we have extracted all the available metals near the surface of the Earth; an evolving species following after us will find the Earth strangely depleted of usable materials, down to the 1500-foot level; and so intelligence coming beyond us will find it just does not have the resources to make the leap to technical civilization. So it’s beginning to look like a one-shot deal."


I think the "one-shot deal" he was talking about was an intelligent, technological species leaving the planet and exploring the cosmos (and/or surviving, for that matter).

That lecture must have been something. I wasn't familiar with Philip Morrison, but it seemed like he was in the thick of it.

73. Great educator. Did a good series for PBS in the 80s. Died at 89 a few yrs ago.

The Drake equation is a long series of terms starting with the number of stars in the universe times the average planets per star times the average percent of planets with liquid water and on and on.

But the two terms that really whittles the number down are the average planets with life that develop technological civilizations and then the final term is the average duration of such civilizations. With a 15 billion yr. old universe, if you're only around a hundred years or so, the odds of two civilizations detecting each other becomes vanishingly small.

39. Yikes!

"Because nanoparticles are so small, they can slip past the body’s various barriers: skin, the blood-brain barrier, the lining of the gut and airways. Once inside, these tiny particles can bind to many things. They seem to build up over time, especially in the brain. Some cause inflammation and cell damage. Preliminary research shows this can harm the organs of lab animals, though the results of some of these studies are a matter of debate."




This paragraph is not inspiring confidence in me.

Like how some of our habits upset key bacterial balance (and here), and just how effective tending to/restoring that bacterial balance/diversity can be in treating illnesses.

I can't help but wonder if it has already happened.

A cursory glance at the FAQs leaves me with the impression that the product is less than safe for direct human application.

22. Are there environmental or safety concerns during application or after the coating has dried?
Once dry, there are no known environmental concerns. The coating has been found to be safe for use in nonfood
contact areas of food processing plants. The coating meets FDA and USDA regulations for those types of applications.
When applying the coating, we recommend using gloves and avoiding skin contact as it will dry out the skin.
Goggles for eye protection and respirators with P100 pre-fi lters and organic vapor cartridges are also recommended
during the spray-on application.

47. Too bad the military didn't snap this up and make it a national defense secret....
