I'm interested to know how long the coating will last until it needs to be re-applied...and under what conditions will it last longer or not as long..
Thank you for a very good question and welcome to our community. I would guess that the life of the Never Wet will depend on the conditions it is exposed to.
I live out on the West coast and I just sprayed the fabric cover to my iron tub fire pit with Never Wet. I am very happy with the results but how long will this last? We will have to wait to find out. Since my cover does not get a lot of activity, I would think that the water proofing will last longer than that of the bottom of a lawn mower. We will have to wait and see.
I applied the Never Wet to my cover on June 18, 2013. I will keep you posted on how is holds up. Before I applied the Never Wet, the water just soaked into my cover.
After I applied the Never Wet, the water just rolled off the cover. I was impressed.
Be sure to take a video of your Never Wet project and share it with us in our Project Library under "I Did This".
This has been another of,
you would think that Rust-oleum would have a definitive answer (based on conditions). I haven't seen any definitve answer to the question, anywhere on the internet
I applied the Rust-Oleum Never Wet to the cover of my fire pit and will the results were very impressive. I will monitor my fire pit cover and let you know how long the NeverWet application lasts.
I live out here on the West Coast and we do not get much rain in the summer. We do get plenty of sun and that may be an issue for the Rust-Oleum NeverWet product. I will let you know if any thing developes. As with any type of coating, Mother Nature has a way of wearing on it.
