Nissan testing ‘self-cleaning’ car prototype which uses Ultra-Ever Dry technolog

A self-cleaning car prototype is being tested by automaker Nissan. The prototype makes use of a new technology called 'Ultra-Ever Dry,' which comprises a nano-paint coating that can repel dirt, oil, and debris.

The Ultra-Ever Dry nano-paint coating has been developed by UltraTech International; and it is technically called a super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint --- which means that it is capable of repelling both oil and water.

In a recent demonstration of the Ultra-Ever Dry nano-paint coating, Nissan showed how the paint prevented water and oil from sticking to the car's exterior. The protective coating has been proven to withstand extreme temperatures resulting from frost, sleet and rain. According to Nissan, the technology has been created to form a protective layer between the car's environment and the paint by stopping water from creating smudges on the car's exterior surface.

Though the Ultra-Ever Dry technology is still on probation, Nissan is reportedly planning to use the new technology on its Nissan Note passenger car in Europe, if the testing of the technology is successful.

Asserting that "the Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to take the stress out of customer driving," Geraldine Ingham - the chief marketing manager for Nissan Note - said: "We are committed to addressing everyday problems our customers face and will always consider testing exciting, cutting edge technology like this incredible coating application."
