Testing NeverWet

As many of you may have seen The Home Depot is starting to carry Rust-Oleum’s NeverWet, a liquid repelling surface treatment. NeverWet is a two part spray process that creates a hydrophobic barrier between the treated surface and liquids it comes in contact with.

We sprayed a variety of items to better give you all feedback on any questions you may have.

Now some of the observations we have made are as follows:


NeverWet works as advertised we tried it on everything from an umbrella to a sheet of stationary paper with a success each time. Water beads and rolls off treated surfaces as soon as it makes contact, behaving similar to liquid mercury. The surfaces were left completely dry to the touch as well!


You do need to be aware though that the product does leave the surface with a slight texture think around 200 grit sandpaper. The second coat also leaves a faint frosted effect that’s blue tinged on most surfaces, so be sure that before you spray something try a small out of the way section first.


All and all though we’ve found it to be a great product and well worth a try for those surfaces you want to protect from the damage liquids can cause. If you have any questions about the product fill free to ask and we'll do our best to answer them. Take care folks.
