All Spraying Processes for the Fabrication of Robust, Self-Healing, Superhydrophobic Coatings




The spraying method is developed for the fabrication of mechanically robust and self-healing superhydrophobic coatings, which comprise highly porous and rough polyelectrolyte coatings preserved with low-surface-energy healing agents. These coatings can repetitively and autonomically restore superhydrophobicity in humid environments. After depletion of healing agents, superhydrophobic coatings with dual healing agents can regain their self-healing ability by re-spraying fluoroalkylsilane.
