Gentoo® Coating Technology
Approximate minimum stocking order: $15,000.
A clear, super-abrasion resistant, smudge-proof, self-cleaning hydrophobic coating.
Gentoo is a unique and cutting edge technology that is a clear, durable, abrasion resistant, hydrophobic coating that has a very low sliding angle, offering it self-cleaning or easy-to-clean properties. It also is an excellent anti-corrosion, anti-graffiti, anti-smudging and chemical resistant coating. Some testing has been done on leather, boots and gloves with promising results.
Important notes about this product:
Gentoo can be dip and flow coated or it can be painted on by brush or roller. It can be sprayed on, but it has limitations and will not provide a cosmetic appearance in most cases.
The product is two-parts. Part A will ship with a nitrogen gas blanket in the top of the container to keep moisture out. If you do not use all of Part A, you need to purge the air from the container with nitrogen to allow the Part A to have a shelf life. Part B does not require nitrogen. A two hour mixing time is required. You will have 24 hours of pot life to use the prepared Gentoo.
There is a minimum of a twelve-month shelf life.
The products ship as hazardous materials and you need to be sure of the following:
Do you need to register the chemicals as an importer for them to be brought in?
Are there exemptions that allow you to get started by selling up to a certain amount before you have to register?
Since we want our international distributors to stock and ship locally, you will need to understand your country’s regulations or the UN regulations for shipping hazardous liquids.
Are there any storage restraints in your country?
You may order a smaller trial size containers or 1- gallon bottles to try before placing your initial order.
Pricing and part numbers are not available for Gentoo at this time. If you indicate an interest in being a Gentoo stocking distributor, we will contact when it is available. The expected date for Gentoo to be in stock is July 2016.
IMPORTANT: Gentoo ships as a hazardous material and costs more than normal freight. It is shipped via a third party packaging company for proper crating and shipment. Be sure to get freight quotes and the total cost of packaging air or ocean shipments so you have a good idea of the total landed price of the product.
