Hydrophobic - Producing water-repellant surfaces • Low pressure plasma systems
Hydrophobic is the physical property in which a molecule will repel water. One property of a these types of molecules is it tends to be non-polar. With plasma treatments, you can increase the water resistant tendencies of materials. You can also decrease these tendencies to make a material hydrophilic. These desired effects can be achieved through the use of one of our low pressure plasma systems.
