HIREC® / Super Hydrophobic Water Repellent Coating Series

Super Hydrophobic Coatings for Antenna, Radome and Dish Applications

HIREC® is a super hydrophobic water repellent coating material (similar to paint) developed by NTT to protect its critical telecommunications equipment from snow, ice, and rain interference. The coating creates a contact angle of 150 degrees between the surface and the water droplet, virtually eliminating the problems of rain fade and rain, snow, and ice attenuation. This technology has been developed into several products that can be used in a variety of ways, and we are working on creating more.
