Investigation of the Hydrophobicity Transfer Property of Polymeric Insulating Materials through Artificial Pollution Layers
The paper presents and discusses a procedure to apply a defined artificial pollution layer on insulating material specimens in order to evaluate the hydrophobicity
transfer of these materials. The thickness of the artificial
pollution layer, the influence of the climate during storage
and the surface roughness on the hydrophobicity transfer
have been investigated and are discussed.
