Pagination or Media Count:
This effort evaluates bioinspired coatings for use in a top-coat type application to identify those technologies that may improve decontamination capabilities for painted surfaces. This report details results for evaluation of variations on two slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces SLIPS produced by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory PNNL Richland, WA. Retention of the simulants paraoxon, methyl salicylate, dimethylmethylphosphate, and diisopropyl fluorophosphates following treatment of contaminated surfaces with a soapy water solution is reported. Wetting behaviors and target droplet diffusion on the surfaces are also discussed.
