Water is necessary for life here on planet earth. However, this nourishing element also has a knack for submerging cities and causing massive damage. It can rot wood, rust anything metallic and was responsible for roughly $108 billion of damage during Hurricane Katrina. Though many of these destructive processes seem inevitable, water has just recently met its match.
A product named Ultra-Ever Dry, developed by NeverWet LLC and distributed by UltraTech Int., has the power to make almost any surface entirely waterproof with a simple spray from a can. Mark Shaw, CEO of UltraTech, is confident that for next few decades, most of the major breakthroughs in the marketable tech world will be based on nanotechnology, the field of science behind the Ultra-Ever Dry. So, how does it work?
