Has anyone tried dry water?

This technology looks pretty interesting.
Maybe it could replace surfactants.


  • Hey Perry,

    sorry for my newbie-questions.
    I looked your video and find it super interesting.
    But when I think about dry water, powdery water comes into my mind. The formula, where water is dispersed in really small droplets to be 'encapsulated' in silica.
    When i search dry water in google i can also just find this version.

    But I also found a related video about 'super hydrophobic coating', which could have been covering the finger that had been put in the water in the video.

    I would like to think about if it could be an alternative for surfactants, but as I am not sure what this technic is about I wanted to ask you if you have a link to read something about the technic you wanted to discuss?

    Thank you!

    Oh yeah sure I have tried it. First trip across Lagos lagoon in my speedboat. Ran aground. A fishing family came past in a log canoe. The old guy chuckled at my predicament and said in Pidgin English, "Dry Water!"

    Must be a Dupont product
  • That would be the best occlusive for dry skin ever.

    But how the heck would you get it in a cream?
