oleophobic

oleophobic

Resistant to oil. An oleophobic coating helps repel much of the natural oil from the finger when touching the screen. Apple introduced its first oleophobic screen on the 3G S iPhone.

One product, iRecoat[TM] from Cytonix, is an oleophobic and hydrophobic fluorosilane coating consisting of a blend of perfluoropolyether silanes that is formulated to provide anti-staining properties (dirt, fingerprints, skin oils, sweat, cosmetics) and durability (resistance to rubbing, UV, weathering) to touchscreens.
This study may be considered as new, because there are no literature references for products that can impart both hydrophobic and oleophobic properties to wood, while any literature citation for the use of nanoadditives in the production of wood-based panels is related with the improvement of other properties than the studied ones, like the lowering of formaldehyde emissions (9).
Printing areas are oleophilic and hydrophobic, they attract ink and repel water, while non-printing areas are completely different--hydrophilic and oleophobic, attract water and repel ink.
Applying the fountain solution onto nonprinting areas enhances their oleophobic character and rejection of the printing ink.
Then it cross-links to form a nano-mesh structure, which has hydrophobic and oleophobic properties.
The screen is covered with a new oil-resistant, or oleophobic, coating, making it easier to wipe off fingerprints.
Units also offer features such as a potted lead hole, a shell flared on both ends, a stainless steel shaft slinger, a drip groove, and a hydrophobic and oleophobic breather vent.
Castano of the Autonomous National University in Mexico, a unique chemical reaction links two types of molecules that usually separate like oil and water: hydrophobic (hi-droh-FOHbik) molecules that repel water-based paints, and oleophobic (oh-lee-oh-FOHbik) molecules that push away oil-based paints.
Non-stick NEDOX coatings also eliminate the potential growth of mold and bacteria by creating a dense, non-porous surface that is both oleophobic and hydrophobic.
The focus of the analysis is on self-cleaning, anti-corrosion, anti-fouling and de-icing, but it also examines commercial applications for oleophobic and omniphobic applications.
At ABRAFATI, the company will feature advanced FluorolinkA solutions for important application areas: anti-ice coatings for aerospace with superior hydrophobic performance; aesthetic long-term automotive coatings with easy-to-clean, oleophobic and anti-fingerprint properties, where the use of PFPE as a low-content modifier, results in a significant reduction of surface energy.
