      Prayers for a longtime Member   11/05/2017

      The Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today and her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. I made a topic in the "Cabin" I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

New Rustoleum Waterproofing Product

18 posts in this topic

Just read about a new product from rustoleum called Never Wet .

Looks very interesting, wondering how this would work for waterproofing some of our cams and hunting items.

A spray that totally repels water :D

Looks like it may be for more porous surfaces like wood, etc. Might have some applications for us, but takes three coats, the reviews are average and it does not dry clear. Not so sure on this one, most things we use are already water proof/resistant due to being plastic, other than the goop type sealants/glues and seals. IMO. Might have missed something though. It would do for gear I'd think.

I saw that stuff a while ago, extremely hydrophobic. I think it'll work since I think most moisture that gets in out builds gets there through capillary action via leaks and/or delta atmospheric pressures.

 

Thanks for the link for the sale of it! I'll buy some to try.

Just finished ordering some since I had a Home Depot Gift Card. I'll post some results when I get it in. Thanks again Buckhunter1, I thought this stuff was years away!

"Had" to buy some other things that related to smoking meat to fulfill the requirement for free shipping but that is the sacrifice I'm willing to make to help out fellow

Here's video on the future of waterproofing, Nano technology, way above my pay grade!

Looks like I'll be trying this on my boards, "It prevents corrosion when coated over metallic surfaces and alloys. Metallic corrosion results from the oxidation process of the metal involving water and oxygen. When then water molecules in the moist atmospheric air are prevented from reaching the surface, corrosion is avoided."

That was my first thought as well mike. No moisture could get to the board if its waterproof like in those vids. I'm going to pick some up to try as well the next time I'm in the HD area.

It would also work spraying around the seals of the case I would think.

Was thinking the same things.

I've been spraying a light film of Fluid-Film on my aio boards. Works great! Haven't tried it on the seals cause it

smells like a little Lamb :blink: protect's electronics very well.

 

FLUID FILM's woolwax formulation is classified as non-toxic and non-hazardous http://www.fluid-film.com/products/

I've been a huge Fluid Film fan since I bought my tractor 5 years ago. Absolutely the best product protecting outdoor metal items minus the stripping, priming, and painting of them.

 

Never thought about it for boards but it does have potential. As long as it's not conductive, and apparently it's not per Buckhunter1's experiments. The main ingredient is lanolin. It does not evaporate like WD40 and leaves a nice coating on the surface.

 

We buy some remote telemetering devices for the reading of gas meters that are hard to get to like in basements and in a field occupied by an enraged bull, and they have this viscous gel poured over the boards which protects them from oxidation.

 

Without giving too much away, Gunboy53 and myself are looking into this product for a potential new board.

 

Anyway, my order of Neverwet was canceled because the warehouse was out indefinitely through Home Depot.

 

I'd like to see someone on here try this product if they have access to it. I'd think that it would probably be permanent if sprayed on the board.

 

 

As an aside, Fluid Film works great on work boots and work gloves. Try it!
