Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO USE PLASMA POLYMERIZATION METHODS TO DEPOSIT HYDROPHOBIC FLUOROCARBON FILMS ON FACE SHIELDS TO PREVENT ICE AND FOG BUILD-UP. THESE WILL BE VERY LOW SURFACE ENERGY COATINGS, STRONGLY ADHERENT TO THE PLASTIC SHIELD. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EVALUATE A NUMBER OF FLUOROCARBON FILMS IN TERMS OF ADHERENCE, TRANSPARENCY, AND SURFACE ENERGY. OVERALL, THE USE OF SUCH FILMS REPRESENT AN IDEAL SOLUTION TO THE ICE AND FOG BUILD-UP PROBLEM IN THAT THE PROPOSED METHOD IS BOTH EFFECTIVELY AND RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE TO APPLY.
