Coatings and speciality products company PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) on Monday announced the availability of the easy-to-use hydrophobic coating kit for operators of general aviation aircraft, to temporarily restore windshield rain repellency
in the field.
can be conveniently expressed by the contact angle [theta], defined as the angle between the tangent to the curved water surface at the point of contact with the solid surface and the plane of the surface on which the drop is resting, measured through the water (Fig.
may be a factor contributing to erosion and runoff into the lake.
The effect of burn severity on both soil total carbon and soil water repellency
was significant for both study areas (Table 2).
Tokyo, July 11, 2011 - (JCN) - Teijin Fibers, the core company of the Teijin Group's polyester fibers business, has developed a new stain-resistant polyester fabric that offers, for the first time, both water absorption to eliminate stickiness and oil repellency
to resist oil-based soiling.
Although solvent-based coatings had better water repellency
performance on CCA-treated and untreated wood, there was no significant difference in water-repellent effectiveness (WRE) between water-based and solvent-based coatings on ACQ- or CA-treated wood.
In addition, it exhibits a unique ability to recover water repellency
after contaminants are deposited on its surface.
