Coating engine components with hard carbon reduces friction to almost zero – a development that could save billions of liters of fuel worldwide every year.
Current available superhydrophobic modification techniques that utilise mussel-inspired polydopamine (pDA) to construct hierarchical structures require the addition of nanoparticles or the usage of a high concentration of dopamine.
In a paper, sol-gel-based transparent easy-to-clean (ETC) coatings are fabricated using organic-inorganic hybrid precursors and fluorinated silane-based hydrophobic surfactants.
A moth’s eye and lotus leaf were the inspirations for a superhydrophobic glass coating that holds potential for solar panels, lenses, detectors, windows, weapons systems and other products.
Chinese researchers have investigated self-roughened superhydrophobic coatings for continuous oil-water separation.
Clear, durable anti-smudge coatings with a thickness of up to tens of micrometers have been prepared through a graft-copolymer-based approach from commercial precursors.
Nanoparticles are specifically adapted to the particular application by Small Molecule Surface Modification (SMSM).
A team led by researchers from University College London (UCL) has developed a new paint that makes robust self-cleaning surfaces.
A surface coating sets new standards for personal protective equipment (PPE).
During the last decade, self-healing of concrete has attracted so much attention in the research community as a promising tool toward more durable and sustainable infrastructures.
