    Rustoleum just released a new paint called NeverWet. It not only makes stuff waterproof, it actually makes it water repellant. And it comes in a nice easy spray can. Could really make waterproofing an enclosure so much easier. Here is the youtube clip...

    Hi Josh, hopefully it will be available in the U.K before too long, I think it looks like a very useful product indeed!
    If they decide not to release it over here I might be persuaded to let you send me crate.... :-"

    it is currently on the shelf at walmart. IT IS NOT MEANT FOR CONTINUOUS CONTACT WITH WATER. Also is you ever scrub the surface it is applied to, the top coat must be reapplied. over time the top coat will be needed to be reapplied if the water fails to bead, or run off object. is also a warning label stating the chemicals are known to the state of California to cause birth defects .

    Have you checked out the MSDS for it?

    I wouldn't trust that around any animal. I recommend only using products that are food safe. I wouldn't be surprized if it leeches chemicals into water sources.

    While I wouldn't use it for a pool or water feature, I imagine it would be fine if your only goal is to keep the wood from rotting. Should work about the same as any of the other chemicals we use (Polycrylic? anyone check an MSDS on that?) I wouldn't eat off of either of them.

    It is generally a good idea to scrub or sand any surface you intend to pint/stain/seal. Just makes a better finished product.

    I might get some to treat the canopy I use for shade when I go flying rc aircraft, but I doubt I'll find a use for it with the critters. It's not really a permanent solution for them due to the occasional need for reapplication. Still a very neat product though.

    Ya, admittedly the more I see on it (various reviews now that its been out for a few days) the less likely it is to have any applications for the enclosures. Oh well!

    I think I would use it on the outside of the out door enclosure to keep the dog pee and rain off of them but definitely wouldnt use it on a fully contained enclosure. Maybe even on the outside of the tortoise house...
