Beltsville, MD, June 03, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Cytonix Corp. announced today the on-line availability of a new product, WX2100™ that significantly reduces weather-related satellite TV reception problems. One easy spray on application of WX2100™ to a microwave satellite dish antenna significantly reduces weather related satellite TV reception problems for 10 years or more and provides consumers a low cost solution to the number one satellite TV consumer complaint, rain fade.
Rain, snow and ice covering a satellite dish contribute to interruptions of TV reception. Together with atmospheric precipitation, this loss of signal is commonly referred to as “rain fade”. In heavy rain, a film of water can accumulate on the satellite dish resulting in poor video, loss of color and/or sound and in some cases the picture may drop out all together. Ice and snow accumulations on the dish can block reception long after precipitation has stopped. On a dish coated with WX2100™, the rain beads up and rolls off, and snow and ice do not adhere, allowing the signal to get through.
According to the latest national survey, satellite subscribers are more subject to weather-related woes than cable subscribers (Consumer Reports, November, 2005). Indeed, the number 1 complaint of satellite TV subscribers is weather-related satellite TV outages. Just when you most want to watch TV — during inclement weather or the crucial final minutes of the big game — you totally loose TV reception. This is an even bigger problem for high speed satellite internet reception. Most satellite broadband systems operate in the Ku band, which is more susceptible to rain fade than the Ka satellite TV band.
WX2100™ brings together the toughness of high-performance urethanes and the most advanced fluoropolymers to produce a super-hydrophobic, lotus effect nano composite that provides superior and enduring performance long after other hydrophobic products have failed. WX2100™ technology has been used successfully at commercial satellite and local network installations and with military ground and marine systems - where a clear signal is vital.
