Preparation and Characterization of Superhydrophobic Polypropylene Surface with Excellent Self-Cleaning Property
A superhydrophobic polypropylene surface was obtained by a facile method. The water contact angle and sliding angle of the superhydrophobic polypropylene surface were 157±1.8ºand 1.6º, respectively. When the superhydrophobic polypropylene surface was contaminated, 99 % contaminant particles were removed from the superhydrophobic polypropylene surface by artificial rain, showing excellent self-cleaning property.
