Abstract

Flat films of methyl methacrylate-alkyl methacrylate copolymers were prepared, and static and dynamic hydrophobicities (water contact angle, sliding angle, contact angle hysteresis, and sliding behavior) of their surfaces were investigated. Surface segregation of alkyl methacrylate moiety was not obviously observed. It was revealed that the softening point of the polymer seriously affects dynamic hydrophobicity (sliding angle and sliding behavior of a water droplet) on these surfaces. If the softening point is over r.t., the sliding acceleration increasing with an increase in the water contact angle (WCA).
