May 16, 2014 - Designed to resist liquid absorption or wetting, TECHSPEC® Hydrophobic Windows utilize proprietary hydrophobic surface that causes liquid to form droplets on contact, rather than be absorbed or spread across surface. Anti-reflective coatings provide less than 0.4% reflection per surface from 425–675 nm. Available in 7 models from 5–75 mm diameter, windows exhibit contact angles of greater than 107° and maintain contact angles of greater than 100°, even after moderate surface abrasion.
