Maybe even Skydrol?

Seems a coating like this, especially if it adheres more or less permanently, would have myriad applications in aviation. How many Captian's shirts would be saved every year?

How many A.netters immediately thought of AF when they read the title?  That does look promising, but would it add a lot of weight to the aircraft as paint does?

Wondered that, myself. It occured to me that this stuff could probably replace the top coat of paint, and there wouldn't be any dirt to add drag and weight.

The mind kind of boggles when you consider the possibilities. One use that everybody will applaud is in the lav.

A bit off topic, but what if you coated a submarine with this stuff?
