Package 14: Surface Modification Processes
Water repellents or self-cleaning surfaces are some interesting examples of modified surfaces using nanoscale coatings. Variety of coating materials could be applied to modify surfaces to obtaining specific surface properties such as super hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity, corrosion resistance, and antibacteriality. The surface modification educational package could be used to apply specific coating on materials surface to obtain specific surface properties.
