Anti adhesive

Very often it is the aim of a plasma treating to create a high surface energy to improve bonding or coating of a surface.

The exact opposite is another important application for plasma technique

A surface which an extremely low surface energy is water-repelent (superhydrophobic) and self cleaning.

Superhydrophobic surfaces can be produced by coating by plasma polymerisation in a low pressure plasma.

ultra hydrophobe
Hydrophobe and ultra hydrophobe coatings by plasma polymerisation create anti adhesive and selfcleaning surfaces.
