A superoleophobic textile repellent towards impacting drops of alkanes


Artus, Georg R J; Zimmermann, Jan; Reifler, Felix A; Brewer, Stuart A; Seeger, Stefan (2012). A superoleophobic textile repellent towards impacting drops of alkanes. Applied Surface Science, 258(8):3835-3840.

Abstract

A commercially available polyester fabric has been rendered superoleophobic by coating with silicone
nanofilaments and subsequent plasma fluorination. The treated samples show outstanding oil-repellency.
They achieve the highest possible oil-repellency grade of 8, repel impacting drops of alkanes and show
a plastron layer in hexadecane. The oil repellency is shown to depend on the topography of the silicone
nanofilament coating.
