    ...toxic nightmare?

    What is this stuff and how gnarly is it?

    Impressive video but who knows what the long term value is or if it is generally safe to apply or be around.

    More info here

    Various volatile solvents, proprietary polymer, silica

    Don't breathe aerosols if spraying, or the vapors, but I suspect once dry it's not bad

    It is a two part product. To bad you can only by 1 Gal. or 5 Gal. For 1 gal. of the top coat $405 and 1gal. of bottom coat is $235. It is expensive but would last you a life time. I wonder what the shelf life is?

    I'll volunteer my waders for a test.

    I wonder if this stuff could be used on felt wading boots to help with transfer of invasive species problem?

    Hydrophobic nanotechnology is in development and testing for coating outdoors wear and waders.
