Flexible and oil and water resistant membranes and surfaces

This technology is the fabrication of omniphobic surfaces using a sequential initiated chemical vapor deposition process. Technology Description This technology is a novel method for the fabrication of omniphobic surfaces. A sequential initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) process, shown in Figure 1, was developed that involved three steps: (i) adjustment of pore size and porosity of the substrate, (ii) assembling of reentrant structures, and (iii) engineering surface energy. Altogether, these steps produce surfaces with special wettability through a semi-continuous process. Resulting omniphobic surfaces are flexible and porous and show superior performance in both static and dynamic wetting characterization tests. Arpi Siyahian asiyahian@nutechventures.org 402-472-1783
