NeverWet Spray makes any surface super water resistant...

RATE THIS! +0
Posted in Science on 14th Nov, 2011 06:05 PM by APM

We’ve all heard of water proof or water resistant clothing, but generally that involves a special material that is lined into the fabric.  Gortex is a good example of this tech, which is both waterproof and breathable.  But that’s costly and not all that practical.  And while you can spray your shoes with a “water proofing” it will never equate to the same benefits as Gortex.  So what’s your resolve?

 

Ross Technology’s has developed a 100% waterproof spray called NeverWet.  But it’s not just waterproof, it’s superhydrophic, which as the name suggests, makes whatever you spray the chemical on impenetrable or nonporous to liquids of any type.

 

Now we don’t know what would happen if you submerged the item sprayed with NeverWet, but as you can see from the above video it completely prevents the liquid from squirreling its way into the fabric’s crevices.  Pretty damn impressive, right?

 

We can’t help but wonder what would happen if you sprayed this onto your skin?

A psychiatrist is a pihcysian who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelor’s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency pihcysian for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee. Reply

I vaguely remember acdtaeniclly walking into a dessert tasting event at a hotel in NYC. It was spectacular, for you pay $30 and eat all the desserts you want by an amazing pastry chef. Now I can’t remember for the life of me which hotel it was. Does anyone know? I thought it was the Ritz Carlton but I don’t think it is. Reply
