An organic-inorganic hybrid composite for use as a coating agent was prepared by mixing linseed oil with hydrophobic octylsilyl titanium dioxide particles having an average diameter of 35 nm (OSI-TIO2-35) in volatile silicone. The weight ratio of linseed oil with OSI-TIO2-35 was varied from 2:8 to 8:2 and the mixture was spread on a glass plate by dragging an applicator across it. After storing in the oven at 60 °C for 2 days, the composite having the weight ratio of OSI-TIO2-35 with linseed oil at 8:2 exhibited very high water-repellent properties having a water contact angle of 148°. Variation of the water contact angle during storage at 60 °C was monitored. It decreased by 10° in the initial 8 h and then increased by 45° over the next 2 days. Composites containing silicone resin, TMSS BY11-018, instead of linseed oil were also prepared. The sample having a weight ratio of OSI-TIO2-35 with TMSS BY11-018 at 8:2 also exhibited very high water-repellent properties with a water contact angle of 152°. The highly hydrophobic surface thus prepared by the coating and drying of those organic-inorganic hybrid composites was easily transferred to highly hydrophilic surfaces by calcination at 500 °C for 3 h.
