In this study, fabrics having a superhydrophobic and superoleophobic surface were prepared by a wet-chemistry coating technique using a coating solution containing hydrolyzed fluorinated alkyl silane and fluorinated-alkyl polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane. The coating shows remarkable self-healing superhydrophobic and superoleophobic properties and excellent durability against UV light, acid, repeated machine washes, and severe abrasion.
