Anti urine coating applications are suitable on walls and in alleys especially there where public urination is a problem.

The technology behind pee repellent paint

Anti pee paint is a superhydrophobic coating with oleophobic properties. This means that only does the surface repel water but is also immune to oils and grease stains. Such a coating is possible only on basis of nanotechnology, which allows forming an invisible (transparent) barrier with repellent properties. Anti urine coating does not let the urine soak in to the surface and also protects the surface from any other stains.

When there is a chance to get urine on one’s pants and shoes, taking a leak in public is suddenly not so tempting.
