A facile two-step dipping process based on two silica systems for a superhydrophobic surface

Author affiliations

Abstract

A silica microsphere suspension and a silica sol are employed in a two-step dipping process for the preparation of a superhydrophobic surface. It's not only a facile way to achieve the lotus effect, but can also create a multi-functional surface with different wetabilities, adhesive forces and transparencies.
