Review on self-cleaning materials and its applications in industries

Dr. Meera Deshmukh and Rashmi Dongare
Materials which possess property of cleaning dust from their surface are known as self cleaning materials. Natural surfaces like butterfly wings and lotus leaves also exhibits self cleaning property. Due to its tremendous application in industry now a day’s researchers have attracted towards research on self cleaning materials. Though self cleaning materials are currently used, its market has high potential in nearest years, and will become largest category of smart materials for its revenue generation. With the advances in development and economy, problem associated with industrial pollutants becoming more serious. All these pollutants, dust, debris settles on exterior part of walls, which decreases its aesthetic looks. Majority of self cleaning material surfaces fall under two categories: Hydrophilic (in which water spreads over the surface forming the thin film) and Hydrophobic (in which water drop roll off quickly on the surface). In present communication we will try to elaborate present status of self cleaning materials and its applications in various industries.
