  • Patent number: 8815378
    Abstract: The invention relates to a transparent or semi-transparent substrate having, over at least a portion of at least one of its surfaces, a photocatalytic coating based on titanium oxide and characterized in that the coated surface has a luminous reflectance less than that of a non-coated surface of the substrate. The invention also relates to methods for obtaining a substrate of this type and to uses for this substrate.

    Abstract: Articles having a hydrophobic coating are provided. More specifically, the articles include a substrate, a primer layer of acid-sintered silica nanoparticles, and a hydrophobic hydrocarbon layer attached to the primer layer. The hydrophobic hydrocarbon layer is formed by reaction of the primer layer with a silane compound having a reactive silyl group and a hydrophobic hydrocarbon group. Due to the presence of the primer layer, the silane compounds can be attached to variety of substrates. The articles typically have surface that is easy to clean, smudge resistant, and fingerprint resistant.
