Modifying of Ceramis Surfaces
Patent 17061/TUB

This invention enaböes the inertion of various material surfaces for improving their resilience against soil and wear.

Benefits
  1. Formation of hyper-hydrophobic surfaces on a variety of different materials
  2. Formation of hyper-hydrophobic surfaces on a variety of different materials
Possible Applications

Medicine technology, Micro electronics, Industry, Chemistry, Medicine

Background

The inertisation of material surfaces plays a large role for medicine technology, large glass areas, areas strongly overloaded by dirt, and for surfaces with strongly reduced friction.

Technical Description

The presented methode uses functionalized perfluorized bonds. The so produced inert surfaces show extremly low surface energies, are resilient against deposition of substances or cells, and offer very low friction coefficients. Interactions with other molecules like proteins, cells or different substances are reduced to a minimum. On the molecular level is a fast decline of the electric field above the material surface. The specific molecule structure creates an additional lotus effect. The combination creates the targeted hyperhydrophobic surfaces.
