One of the special features of some of our coatings is that they give surfaces water repellent properties. The term water repellency is used to characterize materials on which surface liquids can "pearl". Low surface energy leads to poor surface wettability.
Surfaces with a contact angle with water greater than 90° are said to be hydrophobic. A small contact area between the surface and a liquid reduces the ability of a substance to form a film, which promotes desired properties such as ease of cleaning or prevention of ice formation.
Examples of potential applications:
- Winter sports equipment and facilities
- Equipment and installations for the refrigeration industry
- Dishes and antennas
- Sensors / probes
- Railway and aeronautics industry
