Hydrophobic coatings I

Hydrophobicity phenomena are present in nature; in the leaves of plants such as Nelumbo nucifera (lotus), in the wings of butterflies, or in the legs of water striders. It is also a leading surface property for corrosion protection, as hydrophobic surfaces are water and aqueous electrolytes repellant, anti-icing, bio-corrosion and anti-fouling [1]. These properties can… Continue reading Hydrophobic coatings I
