A Visual Comparison

These images show a water droplet contact angle comparison between a smooth surface (#4 stainless steel, left) and a micro textured hydrophobic surface (Rigid-tex® InvariTone, right). In contrast to conventional stainless steel surfaces, a hydrophobic surface repels water. The micro textured surface is preventing the water droplet from fully wetting the surface, making it easier to clean.
