A robust superhydrophobic fabric was achieved by depositing a stacked polymer film composed of a poly(1,3,5,7-tetravinyl-1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane) (p(V4D4)) layer and a poly(1H,1H,2H,2Hperfluorodecylacrylate) (p(PFDA)) layer. The polymer film was deposited by initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD), a solventless process that allows conformal coating of the stacked polymer film on various micro-structured substrates. The two polymeric layers most likely formed a covalent bondingdoi:10.1039/c2py20963b fatcat:tjzs2rxmarb4zns3v6x36cwtsi
