Petition / Problem
Obtain hydrophobic stainless steel
capable of promoting drying and
repelling unwanted food stains.
Search and selection of coatings that persist to abrasion and resist high temperatures, selection of the application method and performance of resistance tests.
5 coatings were chosen, which were subjected to different resistance tests to test the durability of the coating. To check the durability of the coating, the contact angle of a selected liquid and the surface were measured before and after.
