Self-Cleaning/Non-Wetting Coating for Corrosion Protection of Metallic Structures

Description:

This invention is a novel two-step electrodeposition technique to fabricate superhydrophobic metallic coatings. The method has been demonstrated with a superhydrophobic copper coating with multiscale surface features. A thermodynamic model has been developed which supports extending this invention to other metals.
