Liquid repellent surfaces

  • US Patent No. 9650518
  • Issued: May 16, 2017
  • Status: Active
Materials

A surface can be coated with a liquid repellent coating. Materials for making the liquid repellent coating (e.g., a fingerprint resistant coating) can be selected on the basis of surface energy considerations, such as a receding surface energy. The materials can include a polymer and a liquid repelling material, for example, poly(ethyl methacrylate) and a fluorinated silsesquioxane such as fluorodecyl POSS.
