View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Disclosed in this specification is a method for coating a substrate to prevent dewetting. A suspension of nanoparticles is deposited onto the substrate to produce a nanoparticle layer. The nanoparticle layer is then coated with a monomer. The monomer polymerizes on the nanoparticle layer to produce a polymeric layer.
