Water Repellent Coatings
Water resistance is one of the most coveted properties in a number of industries, including Textile, Construction & Masonry, Furniture, Metals and Plastic.
The term ‘water resistance’ essentially implies impermeability to water. For example, treated textile fabriccan support a considerable water column without water penetration through the fabric. However, such behavior is often incorrectly associated with water repellency, which exhibits a lesser degree of water resistance.
Water repellency refers to water beading up and running off a surface, and is achieved by rendering the surface hydrophobic, making it resistant to wetting by water.Water repellent coating is one of the common methods of rendering a surface hydrophobic. The hydrophobic coating prevents the penetration of water into the pores of the substrate. Substrates such as textiles, metals, plastics, wood, bricks, masonry, concrete, tiles and stucco can be made water repellent.
At Bridgedots, we have an expert team for the development of water repellent (hydrophobic) and super-hydrophobic coatings for various surfaces. We offer customized research and development of water repellent coatings, tailored to your requirements.Our team develops hydrophobic coatings with various other specific, unique properties.
