Abstract
Four polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) coatings with different surface free energies have been prepared and applied to smooth and roughened aluminum plates to form hydrophobic and superhydrophobic surfaces. Their surface wettability in terms of water contact angle (CA), sliding angle (SA) and water droplet impact dynamics was studied under an ambient (50% relative humidity, RH at 25 °C) and three different condensing environments (low, highly and...
