Hermes, C.,J.,L., Sommers, A.,D., Gebhart, C.,W., and Nascimento, V.,S., 2018, A semi-empirical model for predicting the frost accretion on hydrophilic
and hydrophobic surfaces, Int.
For all the hydrophilic
compositions (Exp-III, IV and V) the catalyst paste was identical.18
Less inflammatory cell deposition occurs on hydrophilic
IOLs compared to hydrophobic ones.
Results reflect available evidence supporting better performance and safety when using hydrophilic-coated catheters in intermittent catheterization and that catheters are reimbursed at the same level, irrespective of having a hydrophilic
or non-existing coating.
Increasing applicability of hydrophilic
coatings for varied end users, technological advancements, and growing demand for hydrophilic
coatings in the regions such as Asia-Pacific are the factors expected to drive the growth of the global hydrophilic
coating market during the forecast period.
[sup] Until date, there are mainly four types of IOL materials: Hydrophobic acrylic, hydrophilic
acrylic, silicone, and PMMA.
Hydrophobic sphere (such as the sphere coated with soot) typically forms cavities, whereas hydrophilic
sphere (such as an already wetted sphere) does not.
2002 found that hydrophilic
treatment of fin surfaces caused up to 20% degradation in the heat transfer performance.
Various medical devices (such as catheters and guide wires) need hydrophilic
coatings to reduce friction for maneuvering through blood vessels.
The inverted cup test is appropriate for monolithic hydrophilic
films or PTFE films and is designed to measure the amount of water or perspiration that is absorbed, because hydrophilic
nonporous films "breathe" by absorbing water or perspiration.
