Rustoleum Never Wet---Mistake or not?
Has anyone used this product? Opinions?
I hope I didn't just make a big mistake. Not yet sure but will be soon enough.
I saw this new paint advertised and bought the two part spray to treat my satellite dishes for TV & Internet. Here in the north east when I get wet snow it sticks to these roof top dishes and cuts my signal off. In years past I always try to do something to guard against this happening. Tried car wax, tried Pam cooking spray, tried Rain X and nothing so far has worked well. Sometimes I have to climb the roof in nasty weather to clean the face of the dish to get the signals.
Never Wet is advertised as a hyperbolic coating that is supposed to shed water much the same as Rain X on our windshields, which works great!
Both of my dishes are now coated with this 2 part spray application and I am a bit worried. The coating is listed as Clear/Frosted and I was expecting a very slick shine that water would roll right off of. Instead, the finished look and feel after following the directions to the letter is a rough sandpaper finish that sure does seem like water, snow and ice will cling right on to. Hope I am wrong and this product performs as advertised because I will be screwed if it doesn't.
Have you used this stuff? Used it on satellite dishes? If so, what are your findings?
Just so you know, I would not recommend this paint anywhere on a TW for any reason. Even if it works fantastic at keeping water off surfaces the finished look is rather ugly and I don't see any way of applying it to look good.
