SGI launches ‘Repel’
Repel is a super hydrophobic (water) and olephobic (oil) treatment that will repel most water- based and some oil-based liquids. Repel uses nano technology to coat an object and create a surface chemistry and texture which allows water on surfaces to sit as an almost perfect sphere. Water beads “glide” over surfaces like a skate gliding over ice, with almost no surface friction. Repel has vastly improved adhesion and abrasion resistance allowing it to be used in applications where durability is required.
