U Mass team develops quick and easy coating process to make surfaces omniphobic 30 November 2015 Researchers at the University of Massachusetts have introduced a new method for making transparent, dirt-repellant coatings that can be applied very quickly and easily. The coatings repel both water and oily liquids and are stable at higher pressures and temperatures. A paper on their work is published in the journal Angewandte Chemie . Research into surfaces that repel liquids has been ongoing for decades. The first approaches involved coatings made with fluoropolymers (e.g. Teflon) and silicones. More recently, researchers attempted to mimic the micro- and nanostructured surfaces found in nature. However, liquids can still intrude into such surfaces at higher pressures, such as when drops hit the surface at high speed. It is often nearly impossible to remove oily residues fro...
