Home > Coatings > WX2100: Superhydrophobic spray cans
Super hydrophobic coatings with contact angles to water great than 150 degrees.  These coatings eliminate water-film formation during heavy rain and significantly reduce ice accumulation during freezing rain.  This family of coatings improve satellite reception in rain and snow.

WX2100 [5.5 Oz. Aerosol Can]

WX2100 is super-hydrophobic coating commonly used on marine and ground-based microwave antenna, radomes and other telecommunications gear. WX2100 provides over 150 degree water contact angle performance in extreme sun and rain for over two years. Under heavy rain conditions, Ka band ground stations using WX2100 report rain attenuation (rain fade) losses of only 0.2 dB compared to 10 dB losses for uncoated systems (Hughes Network Systems). Side by side tests between coated and uncoated DirecTV antennas demonstrate 15-20% margins in signal strength during heavy rain, i.e., when signal from uncoated dish drops out at 45%, the coated dish maintains operation at 60-65%. WX2100 also reduces snow and ice accumulation under most conditions. WX2100 is available in frosty white. Please contact Cytonix for bulk orders. WX2100 is a single-part, air-cured coating. The coating is rain resistant after 2-6 hours, substantially cured in 24 hours and is fully cured in 5 to 10 days. Surface temperatures should be between 32 and 95 degrees F. One can covers 5 - 7.5 square feet.
