Abstract:

Silica-Based coatings having excellent water- and oil-repellent properties and good weathering stability have been deposited onto glass surface by a simple one-step dip coating technique. To achieve ultra water repellency and super oil repellency, the chemical composition of SiO2 nanoparticle employed as surface roughness enhancer and trichloro(1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorooctyl)silane employed as surface-energy reducing substance was varied. At the optimum synthesis condition, the coating exhibited very high contact angles of 173.2, 146.7 and 147.6 degrees for water, ethylene glycol and seed oil, respectively. The achievement of excellent water- and oil-repellency is also described based on the presence of air trapped in micropore of the coating in addition to its high surface roughness and low surface free energy. The coatings have good weathering stability based on natural and accelerated weathering tests indicating feasibility for practical use.
