Science Museum Purple Hydrophobic Sand
• Sand that never gets wet – even underwater
• Play, sculpt and create
• It’s sand – but it’s puttyWhat does Hydrophobic Sand do?
The hydrophobic ‘water fearing’ coating repels water, so the surface of the sand is always dry. Coating the sand with silicone changes the surface of the sand so that it cannot bond with water particles, meaning it stays dry even when tipped into water.
What can I learn with Hydrophobic Sand?
Hydrophobic sand is a great way to explore the properties of materials, which is part of the National Curriculum for Science at Key stages 1 and 2.
