Coatings World: One Surface Energy Doesn’t Fit All

By April 28, 2016 Uncategorized

Anti-soiling surfaces provide improved light transmission, material protection, or aesthetics in a number of applications. Surface energy is the most commonly used property when describing anti-soiling coatings. Traditionally, hydrophobic (low surface energy with water contact angles above 90°) coatings have been the primary solution for achieving anti-soiling properties. For example, Drywired has been working on anti-soiling coatings for building materials…
