Fabrication of Super-Hydrophobic Film on Tinplate’s Surface by a Simple Casting Method in Material Engineering and its Application
A simple, cheap and environmental double thin super-hydrophobic composite film was prepared on the surface of tinplate by a simple casting method. The contact angle and sliding angle were measured by an optical contact angle meter. And the major factors that influenced the super-hydrophobic effect of the composite film were studied in our work. The results showed that when the melting temperature was 120°C, the weight radio of PP and PP-g-MAH was 1:4, the drying time was 24h, the dosage of ethanol was 0.4ml, the composite film showed a satisfactory super-hydrophobicity and its water contact angles reached a maximum value of 156.6° while the sliding angle reached a minimum value of 2°. Because of anti-oxidation, moisture-proof and anticorrosion performance of super-hydrophobic tinplate, it has potential practical applications in packaging material engineering.
