Neverwet super hydrophobic coating is a state of art innovation that repels any liquid substance. The coating has strong forces of cohesion between its molecules that keep them attached together, preventing the slightest mixture with molecules of other liquids. Unlike other similar products, adhesive forces that would attract molecules of other liquids have been reduced to minimum. The scientific success innovation is the reason as to why liquids falling onto a surface coated with neverwet super hydrophobic coating will roll off leaving behind no traces.
How does it work?
A scientific approach is considered to create a molecular contact angle of the coating from between 90 degrees and 180 degrees. Most substances such as water would sit and stick onto a substance with a contact angle above 180 degrees. Contact angles lower than 180 degrees but above 90 degrees raise the repelling properties between contacting substances and greatly undermines frictional forces. This leaves the droplet falling onto the coated surface with no option but to increase cohesion amongst its molecules and rolls over the surface.
Uses of neverwet super hydrophobic coating
1. It prevents corrosion when coated over metallic surfaces and alloys. Metallic corrosion results from the oxidation process of the metal involving water and oxygen. When then water molecules in the moist atmospheric air are prevented from reaching the surface, corrosion is avoided.
2. The strong cohesive forces between the molecules of the coating ensure that dirty waters and any other substances like oils, roll over the surface without making it dirty. The product is the first of its kind to offer such properties. The surface is always clean and dry.
3. The product destroys bacteria that fall on it. However, environmentalists are likely to raise voices but people are protected from falling sick. It is a suitable coating for hospital items and scientific research labs, where a high degree of hygiene is required.
