Title: Waterborne hydrophobic cleaning and coating composition

Abstract: Waterborne hydrophobic cleaning and coating compositions of this invention are prepared by combining one or more silicone ingredient, with water, and at least one solubilizing agent capable of making the silicone ingredient miscible in water to form a homogeneous mixture. Optionally, cleaning and costing compositions of this invention can include volatilizing agents, to reduce application time, and colorizing agents, to provide a desired composition color. The silicone ingredient can be selected from the group of silicone resins, silicone oils, and mixtures thereof. Preferably, the silicone ingredient comprises a functional group that is capable of forming a bond with a chemical group of the underlying substrate. Preferably, the solubilizing agent is one that is selected from the group consisting of organic solvents, alcohols, ketones, acetates, ethers, esters, aromatics, and mixtures thereof that are soluble in water and that are capable of cleaning a substrate surface. Coating compositions of this invention are capable of simultaneously cleaning, preparing a substrate surface, and providing a protective thin-film hydrophobic surface thereon at ambient temperature without conducting a multi-step process and without having to use special equipment.
