Micro and nanotexturization of polymeric surfaces may provide different functionalities, such as superhydrophobicity, self-cleaning or antibacterial capabilities. These surface texture properties are promising for many surface engineering applications. In this work, the replication of textures was carried out by liquid silicone rubber (LSR) injection moulding. LSR has a great interest in the medical industry due to its biocompatibility. These medical applications have interesting synergies with ...
