Abstract

original image

Trockene Filme: Durch Elektrospinnen wurden Filme mit großen Wasserkontaktwinkeln (166.7°) und kleinen Gleitwinkeln (4.3°) hergestellt. Diese Filme zeigen eine ausgezeichnete superhydrophobe Cassie-Bereichs-Stabilität: Im Bild ist ein selbst nach uniaxialer Belastung mit 400 Pa nicht benetzender Wassertropfen zu sehen.
