Originally developed to keep military jet fighter canopies clean and free of rain, dirt and debris, the Gentoo coating from UltraTech International, Inc. has performed well in many other applications including corrosion resistance, camera lenses, windows and more.
The advanced, clear, hydrophobic coating recently added to the UltraTech lineup combines features and properties never seen before in a coating, the manufacturer said.
Traditional hydrophobic coatings are clear and abrasion resistant, but do not shed fluid easily. Superhydrophobic coatings are generally great at shedding water but are not clear, and are easily removed. Whether it’s abrasion resistance, oil repellency or visual clarity, conventional coatings have their limitations. Gentoo changes that.
Gentoo is a clear coating that not only repels water but most oils and solvents as well. It is also able to withstand significant abrasion without sacrificing performance.
