Superhydrophobic coating fabricated by electrophoretic deposition using polydimethylsiloxane-based organic-inorganic hybrid materials and ceramic powders
Superhydrophobic surfaces have important applications in daily lives as well in various industries. In this study, composites with superhydrophobic surfaces were fabricated from polydimethylsiloxane-based hybrid materials and ceramic nanopowders by electrophoretic deposition. Under different appropriate conditions, such as the amount of a particular component, the composite possessed a three-layered hierarchical surface. The fabricated composite films comprising three-layered hierarchical structures exhibited contact angles greater than 160 degrees and contact angle hystereses as well as sliding angles less than 5 degrees.
