Polymer Centre Research Highlight- Superhydrophobic Ski Bases

Prof Peter Styring at the University of Sheffield has developed a technology which could be used to improve the speed of alpine skis, by embossing the base of the skis to reduce water adhesion. Reducing the water adhesion (or increasing hydrophobicity) has been shown to reduce the friction experienced by the ski and hence increase […]
