    Hi guys,

    Recently, I am trying to coat a material, which is dissolved in toluene, onto a hydrophobic surface. But it is hard to find out a hydrophobic material, which is also immiscible in toluene. (e.g. polystyrene is hydrophobic, but dissolves in toluene)

    Therefore, I wonder if anyone knows which material satisfies the requirement in my case.

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks, Polytetrafluoroethylene is really a good option for my experiment, and I have some PTFE thread seal tape.

    Thanks.
