The thermal degradation of silicones is exploited and engineered to make super-hydrophobic coatings that are scalable, healable, and ecofriendly for various outdoor applications. The coatings can be generated and regenerated at the rate of 1 m(2) min(-1) using premixed flames, adhere to a variety of substrates, and tolerate foot traffic (>1000 steps) after moderate wear and healing.
