OilSlip-GE is a durable hydrophobic coating formulated for water repellency, oil repellency and chemical resistance. GE provides over 100° water contact angle performance for many years. GE is low gloss and transparent. When GE is applied over colored devices the original color is largely retained. GE is a one-part coating formulated for brush or roll application. The coating is water resistant after 4 hours and is fully cured in 5 days. One gallon covers ~200 square feet. Samples are for academic and industrial research use only.
Size: 125 ml Application method: Brush or roll-on Drying time: 4 hours Water contact angle: >100° Color: Transparent
DESCRIPTION: OilSlip-GE is a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating. Coatings have excellent UV, weather and pollution resistance and can be expected to maintain >100° contact angles to water for many years.
DIRECTIONS: Surface should be clean, dry and free of oils and detergents. Priming metal or plastic surfaces with UV resistant acrylics or polyurethane-alkyds is recommended. Two-part gel coats should be lightly sanded. Stir the product carefully just prior to use. Surface and ambient air temperature should be 55-75°F. The coating should appear immediately after brush-on application. Clean up immediately with acetone or mineral spirits. Shelf life of unopened product is 12 months. Coating will be light rain resistant in 30 minutes, substantially cured in 24 hours, and full coating properties will be developed in 7 to 10 days. Exposure to UV and heat (120°F) will facilitate cure. If heavy rain is expected within 12 hours, cover loosely with polyethylene film.
