Superhydrophobic polymer surfaces: preparation, properties, and applications
(Smithers Rapra Technology, 2016)
Surface properties have critical roles in determination of the durability and overall performance of polymeric materials for applications in many fields. Recent investigations on naturally superhydrophobic surfaces such ...
Simple processes for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces
Two simple processes; spin-coating, and doctor blade coating of silica/polymer dispersions are described for the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer surfaces. To demonstrate the versatility and broad applicability of ...
From superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic: tunable wetting of polymer surfaces through the use of fumed silica
A simple process and a general method was developed for the preparation of polymeric materials with controlled surface wettability. Method is applicable to a wide range of polymeric materials, thermoplastic or thermoset. ...
Influence of coating method on the formation of superhydrophobic silicone-urea surfaces modified with fumed silica nanoparticles
Effect of the coating method on the formation of superhydrophobic polydimethylsiloxane-urea (TPSC) copolymer surfaces, modified by the incorporation of hydrophobic fumed silica nanoparticles were investigated. Four different ...
