I was looking for a conductive hydrophobic material if there is one? If not why? I was researching and I found some material about laser etching on metals that causes superhydrophobicity but that I don't think will work if I wanted a curved surface since its roughness would be smoothed out I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

  • $\begingroup$ What's the point? Typically people would just take some conductive material and cover it with some hydrophobic material. $\endgroup$ May 30, 2017 at 5:44

  • $\begingroup$ @airhuff thanks that works great! Sorry forgot to reply. $\endgroup$ Jul 3, 2017 at 13:29
  • $\begingroup$ @IvanNeretin I needed the outside of the material to be conductive as well $\endgroup$ Jul 3, 2017 at 13:30
