Abstract
Applying microinjection compression molding technology, a fast and flexible method is first proposed for the successive and mass replication of polypropylene surfaces with T-shaped micropillars in the present work. The water droplet on the titled surfaces grows in size to roll off due to gravitation effect. Interestingly, the roll-off angles on such surfaces are as a quadratic function of specified water droplet volume, meaning quantitative droplet collection and lossless transfer can be performed on the replicated surfaces. Meanwhile, self-cleaning behavior is preserved on the surfaces. Moreover, the robust Cassie–Baxter state on the replicated surfaces against...
