The Adherence between a Superhydrophobic Coating and the Surface of Aluminum Alloy


Article Preview

A superhydrophobic coating was prepared on the surface of aluminum alloy. The adherence and the hydrophobicity were observed by adherometer and optical contact angle meter, respectively. The affection of silane coupling agent KH550 was also investigated by the analysis of FTIR. The result indicated that the coating owns satisfactory adherence and the hydrophobicity. The treatment of KH550 increases the polar of the surface, which is responsible for the superior adherence. A similar micro-nano structure is mainly attributed to the hydrophobicity. When the density of PP-g-MAH is 1.7 % (mass ratio), the coating shows an optimum super-hydrophobicity and its water contact angles are at range of 163.0-163.9°.
