Introduction

Testing different hydrophobic coatings by measuring contact angles.

Searching to find the best hydrophobic product that’s released to the public.

Tested Oakley, Rain-x, and Ceracoat Ceramic products.

Background Liquipel advanced waterproofing for

phones.

Intriguing properties of the lotus flower.

NeverWet coatings for all materials and waterproofing protectants.

Common everyday advantages regarding hydrophobic materials such as electronics, building materials, and automobiles.

Procedure

1. Set up contact angle apparatus.2. Treat slide with one coating of solution. 3. Put slide on apparatus.4. Use dropper to put one drop of water on slide.5. Measure contact angle.6. Add layers and measure

contact angle until there is a total of five layers.

7. Repeat process with same solution on another slide.

8. Repeat with all other solutions recording data.

Ceracoat Ceramic Nanotechnology

A hydrophobic spray available for many different types of materials.

Ceracoat harvests the use of nanotechnology to repel water, dirt, and other liquids from a verity of materials

Oakley NanoClear Lens Cleaner

Oakley’s unique hydrophobic coating makes lenses immune to moisture buildup, and that’s just the start, anti-smudge technology repels oils and contaminants that can corrupt your vision in the hear of competition

Prevents moisture buildup Fights smudges and repels

contaminants Makes it easy to keep lenses

clean

Rain X Original Rain X is a glass treatment method that helps

dramatically improve visibility in any conditions involving precipitation such as rain, snow or sleet. Rain X works by repelling these liquid obstacles before they have had a chance to bond to the glass and limit vision.

Rain X is made up of special polymers. This emulsion formula of polymers reacts with the pores in glass, creating a surface that can no longer accept precipitation. Because of this, water droplets do not stick to the surface, but instead, gather together in droplets, and roll off the windshield or other glass surfaces.

Page 9: Hydrophobic Coatings

Rain X Anti-Fog Anti-fog agents, also known as anti-fogging

agents and treatments, prevent the condensation of water on a surface in the form of small droplets which resemble fog.

Anti-fog treatments work by minimizing surface tension, resulting in a non-scattering film of water instead of single droplets, an effect called wetting.

Anti-fog treatments usually work either by application of a surfactant film or by creating a hydrophilic surface. 

Rain X uses ionized and acidified alcohol and silicone-based compounds to prevent beading and reduce surface tension.

Conclusion

The maximum contact angle was 86 degrees by Rain-X Original. It reduced contact between the slide and the water the best making it the most hydrophobic product we tested.

Rain-X Anti-Fog reduced the angle and made it immeasurable (essentially completely flat on the slide)

Page 15: Hydrophobic Coatings

Improvements

Test more products.

Test angle at which water starts to slide.

Test at a larger variety of temperatures and conditions.

Test effects on different materials.
