Rust-oleum NeverWet... Anyone try this out on any electronics yet?

They say not to use it on electronics but then they show a video of them water-proofing an iPhone with it which is interesting but it might not be tap water or water that was in a cooling loop for 6 months lol.

Says it can treat 15 square feet... A bargin compared to paying to have it shipped to another company treated and then sent back.

Anyone have any insight if this stuff is useful for water cooling and safe for electronics?

Hmm wonder if this is the same stuff the mit student came up with, I remember seeing the ketchup bottle video. Pretty cool, try it on your motherboard and let us know what happened =)

Could be... it was designed a long time ago but just finally released by teaming up with rust-oleum.

If someone confirmed that it worked I would do it just as a protection but I would bank on that stuff working. Nice to have a water proof board incase a leak happens a big difference from running water over it and not damaging it.

There is already a board that you can run water over problem is no video cards yet to my knowledge.

I'm sure it works but the question is how long will it last (heat from components, break down over time) and is it conductive

Good questions... like I said they did show them using it on an iphone but that doesn't mean jack. They also showed the iphone being submerged in water which also doesn't mean jack because they did not specify what type of water it was. So the water could have been distilled water.

Kind of why I was wondering if anyone had any more info on the applications of this stuff.

People who wonder about how long it lasts bring usually bring up the issue with it being applied to fabrics since the fabrics will be flexed, stretched, rubbed, and washed.

If this stuff does work for electronics it would be great especially for people who buy a water repellant motherboard but not a water repellant video card or other devices.

Personally if my GPU isn't safe I think I could care less about my motherboard. The GPU costs more and is actually more likely to get water on it than my motherboard (in my case not sure about everyone's case).

I am not willing to be the test rodent for this one.

Although I would be willing to test it on an old 939 board and NVidia 7800GTX the test findings may not be relevant because who knows as to whether or not the older tech stuff is more or less sensitive to water. Plus how much water plays into the issue as well... I wouldn't expect to be able to submerge something but if someone was able to prove it could withstand as much as the new water repellent motherboards could it would make me feel a lot better about the chances of a leak happening...

Closest test I saw was with Pcper.com trying it on a Raspberry Pi. The effect of the water literally rolling or bouncing off is surreal.. but unfortunately they couldn't get it to work after. Have a feeling it was the Neverwet itself that had something to do with it more than the water since you could see all the water pooling together and running off immediately. Unfortunately he didn't mention testing it before actually pouring water on it so can't be sure.

I can see this could come in handy when doing sub zero cooling biggrin.gif
Will see if I could get a set to Norway for some testing, have a computer or two that would do well as test subjects rolleyes.gif

How come so many people forgot what was taught in grade school or middle school science about testing things.

If you could just spray anything you wanted that dried on things we could just lacquer our motherboards.

Personally I don't trust any waterproofing demonstration done by a company trying to sell something unless they specifically say that it is water from tap, ocean, lake, river, etc. So the iPhone test they did is bogus to me.

Maybe I will try it on a smartphone. I have a box full of old android phones. But personally that still doesn't prove to me that it is fine for a motherboard I don't know enough about how that stuff is made to say that there isn't something on the motherboard that would be more easily damaged than what is in a phone. Same reason I wouldn't think testing it on a 10yr old motherboard would be enough to convince me either.
