In the Namib Desert of Africa, the fog-filled morning wind carries the drinking water for a beetle called the Stenocara.
NEI Corporation announced today that it has introduced NANOMYTE® SuperCN Plus - a functionally graded coating that imparts superhydrophobic properties to the underlying substrate while providing
When water strikes a surface, sometimes it spreads evenly while other times it beads into tiny droplets. Studying this behavior can lead to improvements in many applications.
The wetting model is a classical problem in surface science and biomimetic science.
Superhydrophobicity is one of most important interfacial properties between solids and liquids.
By Xu, Jing Liu, Xingbo; Bright, Mark A; Hemrick, James G; Sikka, Vinod; Barbero, Ever The reactive wetting behaviors of MSA2020, an Fe-based superalloy, and 316L stainless steel in contact with a molten Zn-Al alloy were investigated by the sessile drop method.
New study paves way for using nanofluids in cameras, microdevices, and displays
By Hwang, Chin-yin Hse, Chung-yun; Shupe, Todd F Abstract This study examined the effects of a compatibilizer on the wettability of birch plywood and polyolefins. The compatabilizer was a low molecular weight emulsion type maleated polypropylene (MAPP), Epolene E-43.
