HYDROPHOBIC... WHAT IS THAT??

Product Characteristics

Starts at $799

Water on Ceramic coated surfaces sits as an almost perfect sphere. Water beads "glide" over these surfaces like mercury droplets, with almost no surface friction.

 

See Ceramic Coatings/Self Cleaning page

 The contact angle of water on a surface is the angle of the leading edge of a water droplet on the surface as measured from the center of the droplet.

 

A surface with a contact angle of 180 degrees would mean that water sits on it as a perfect sphere. Hydrophobic surfaces are measured between 90 degrees and 180 degrees. Right-Center is an illustration comparing the contact angles of common hydrophobic surfaces.

In short this page demonstrates how water on a Nano Coated vehicle will roll off and take dirt with it to ensure a much longer clean surface.
