Superhydrophobic clothes: preparation and characterization

Document Type : Research Paper


A superhydrophobic surface is coated on the surface of a cloth by MTCS (methyltrichlorosilane) nanoparticles and then, it is modified by SiO2–m–FTCS (1H,1H,2H,2H-Perfluorododecyltrichlorosilane) nanoparticles. This surface is characterized by SEM(scanning electron microscopy), and FT-IR (Fourier transform-infrared microscopy) and also its contact angle is investigated in various conditions and an optimized condition is identified for industrial utilization.
