UltraTech International, leaders in the environmental compliance industry, have added Gentoo Coating to its product line. 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. 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. Gentoo has performed well in many automotive applications including corrosion resistance, backup camera lenses, vehicle windows, dirt/mud deterrent, and more.
