[Ars] New nanotech promises nothing will ever get wet—so how should it be used? - Page 9

post #81 of 97
I hate to break it to you guys but the abrasion resistance of this stuff is really bad so it is limited to non contacting stuff like bathroom mirrors. They even say not to touch the shoes after you coat them or risk it wearing off and they said it also has a milky finish so it's not exactly transparent. The price definitely needs to come down before it really takes off especially if it needs to be reapplied often.

It would be amazing for LN2 overclocking. so much easier to deal with than vaseline.

True true. I wonder who's going to try it first?

It really depends on how it works at those extreme temperatures. At -0 temps it may not work at all. It may just flake off. Who knows...

"It's potentially dangerous to the point that a user should use gloves and goggles, it can survive temperatures between -30 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and abrasions may impact performance."
