One team investigated encapsulation of 3rd generation photovoltaic devices to ensure a good lifetime on exterior exposure, and the other team worked on hydrophobic coatings
to provide a self-cleaning surface to the solar cells.
Typical examples include lubricious hydrophilic coatings or hydrophobic coatings
to facilitate implant delivery, or antimicrobial coatings to reduce risk of infection.
Many scopes don't have such coatings, but there are sprays on the market to provide temporary hydrophobic coatings
, though they must be reapplied after a thorough lens cleaning.
Water drop contact angle is used while measuring textile fibres having various hydrophobic coatings
Advances are also being made in nanocoatings and super hydrophobic coatings
to enhance functionalities and extend the lifespan of substrates, thereby, lowering the use of raw materials and leading to cost and energy savings.
The two firms topped Lux Research's rating of hydrophobic coating
developers, and are strong targets for aerospace, sporting goods, and automotive industry players, which see hydrophobic coatings
Unlike other hydrophobic coatings
, Ultra-Ever Dry boasts an easy spray-on application and a high abrasion resistance, which--by minimizing corrosion, ice formation, and contamination--can extend the life of work gloves, building exteriors, motors, and machine parts.
