Abstract : The rin spray apparatus ws modified to permit evaluation of rain repellent formulations applied during rain conditions. Means were provided to deliver the rain s ray and the spray of the repellent solutions simultaneously. The use of surfactans incorporated in acidified dimethyldiethoxysilane did not improve repellency during rain conditions. The use of Ti in ester form alone and in conjunction with slane and silicones makes possble the formation of coaings on glass under ain conditions which permit visibility, but have shot life.
