You can get the same effect for your dish using Pam (cooking spray)

You'll hear the same thing from reviews on Amazon. I began considering this product a couple of months ago, but what you state seems to be true on pretty much any application. It won't last long, won't withstand cleaners, and can't hold up to abrasion.

Not too many practical applications.

pseuno isn't wd-40 flammable? would it not matter after it dries? I'd worry about spraying the exhaust pipes. how about silicone spray?
i like the i idea of treating the undercarriage for winter and trails.

hair2831 If you wanna make your undercarriage easier to clean after a wheeling trip, just spray it down with WD40 before you hit the trails. Works great for me and easy to do.

It truly is an interesting product....I just have not figured out a decent use for it yet.

Can't put it on shiny parts
No real good use on clothing
Defeated by soapy water

I wanna like it....

If you need it to only work for a short time, its fine. I dunno, its kinda not ready for primetime based on my experience. I wouldn't put it on something I really care about. I have thought about spraying it on my hiking/fishing hat so the rain doesn't get in. But even in that case, I haven't actually done it.

I really think they went to market too early.

Rico1111 Bought 2 packages yesterday and sprayed my entire undercarriage also lighting connections/wiring. Then the last thing i did was strip out the foam seals on my soft top and applied new weatherstrip treated with this stuff. The untreated used to soak up water then lean into the jeep. All in all easy peasy. But as was stated. This stuff has a bluish tint haze. Do if this bothers u dont do it!

Gkarshens Very interested in trying this out. Thanks for starting this thread!

coastiejohn A reviewer on home depot web sight posted a pic of a black mail box he did and it looked milky blue. Even with the discoloration I will coat my winch.
06-21-2013 10:25 AM
paleh0rse Since it goes on with a cloudy haze, I wouldn't want to use it anywhere that is easily visible (unless the surface is already white, of course).

If anything, I'll try it on my under-carriage.

paleh0rse I looked into this stuff a few months ago, and the company that invented it claimed at the time that they're close to perfecting a fully transparent version with the same level of effectiveness.

If they ever do release a clear version, I'm going to cover my whole damn Jeep with it!

Lusus_Naturae I'm wondering if this is a commercialized for public version of Ultra Ever Dry. I looked at UED a few months ago and thought about ordering it through my company because it's commercial use only - this looking like it might be promising if it holds up.

Here's a link to UED - they use the same gloves demo, and work boots demo in their video too. Ultra Ever Dry - Waterproofing Coating - Industrial - Tools - Clothing

I think you're missing the point - I'm not interested in it for corrosion resistance.

I'm interested in it because less crap sticks to the truck which means there is less for me to wash out later.

I already have an undercoat - what I want to do is make it easier to clean.

$3.99 for some flat black to spray the underbelly. I always have a few cans and its no big deal to spray and inspect underneath.

This one is for 'multi material' as I remember on the box (its in the garage).. I am not aware of a fabric version that is available to the public.... If so, yes, I'd want that.
