Levron Aerogel Super Hydrophobicity

In this experiment super hydrophobicity of Levron is shown. Water contact angle of Levron Aerogel is 165 degrees. It means that Levron Aerogel heat performance will not be effected by water or humidity. The super hydrophobic effect is active up to 650 C. The structural properties were investigated by measuring density, SEM micrographs, and BET analyses.

In this experiment we see that the hydrophobic effect is not reduced by mechanical impact. Levron Aerogel easily and quickly adhered to hand. The hydrophobic effect continued until the hands were washed with soap or a similar cleanser.
