Glass substrates were spin-coated with a perfluoropolyether oligomer based organic-inorganic hybrid material, and prepared by the sol-gel process. Contact angle analysis and atomic force microscopic analysis were carried out to characterize the surface of the prepared coatings. All systems exhibited strong hydrophobic and oleopophobic characteristics. The wettability behavior was found to be almost independent of both molecular weight and functionality of the fluorinated oligomer. The low values obtained for the contact angle and surface tension indicate that surface segregation of perfluoropolyether segments is likely to take place within the network. On the basis of these results and the high quality of the obtained coatings, these materials could be used as functional coatings to impart water and oleo-repellent characteristics to glasses and other similar substrates.
