However, to date, the mystery about how roughness induces nonwetting
behaviors is still not unveiled.
The ladle is manufactured out of OxyTron material that is nonwetting
to aluminum, eliminating the need to coat ladles during production.
Chapters include description of natural and metallic superhydrophobic surfaces, hydrophobicity of nonwetting
soils, superhydrophobic polymers, and applications of nanotextured surfaces.
Electrospray emission from nonwetting
flat dielectric surfaces.
There have been many reports of super-hydrophobic coatings based on the natural, nonwetting
properties associated with the lotus leaf.
The researchers used the "particle replication in nonwetting
templates" (PRINT[R]) technique developed in their laboratory to make the red-blood-cell mimics.
Destructive failure analysis confirms the intermittent open failures are classic HOP: nonwetting
between solder balls and solder paste.
The process, called Particle Replication in Nonwetting
Templates (PRINT), is in some ways akin to embossing, says Joe DeSimone, PhD, the William R.
In this process, mercury, which is normally nonwetting
, is forced into the pores of the sample under pressure.
The team achieved very high surface energy and a nonwetting
surface with a Dylyn coating, while making the coating electrically conductive.
, it comes out free of frozen metal, "ready to jump back in again.
In addition, the coatings have a high aspect ratio and nonwetting
properties on top of their broadband antireflection capabilities.
