Abstract

The facile creation of a super-amphiphobic coating surface with bionic microstructure was discussed. The two easily synthesized polymeric materials, poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and fluorine-end-capped polyurethane (FPU) were captured for the coating. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to observe the microstructure of the polymer surface obtained by castings. It was found that the coating film prepared from a FPU/PMMA mixture had a rough micro-nano binary structure (MNBS), that was, every micro-papilla (300-700 nm) on the polymeric surface.
