MetadataShow full item record
Methods of reducing pollution problems in power lines systems are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, the method comprises applying Lotus Effect materials as a (superhydrophobicity) protective coating for external electrical insulation system applications. Further disclosed are methods of fabricating/preparing Lotus Effect coatings. Selected inorganic or polymeric materials are applied on the insulating material surface, and stable superhydrophobic coatings can be fabricated. Various UV stabilizers and UV absorbers can be incorporated into the coating system to enhance the coating's UV stability. Other aspects, features, and embodiments are also discussed and claimed.
