Bioinspired Surface Treatments for Improved Decontamination: Liquid-Like Oil Repellent Coating
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 a surface treatment prepared by treating with an IPDI-PDMS liquid-like oil repellent coating. Retention of the simulants paraoxon, methyl salicylate, dimethyl methylphosphonate, dimethyl fluorophosphates, and 2-chloroethyl ethyl sulfide following treatment of contaminated surfaces with a soapy water solution is reported. Wetting behaviors and target droplet diffusion on the surfaces are also discussed.
