In this study, new fluorinated silane system was prepared by adding hydroxyl terminated Fluorolink D10H oligomer to 3-isocyanatopropyltrietoxysilane. The obtained silane system was independently composed with 3-Glycidyloxypropyltrimethoxysilane and 3-Glycidyloxy-propyltriethoxysilane. Then the prepared two different coating solutions were applied to glass surface by spin-coating method. The chemical bonding between groups in system was investigated by FTIR analysis. The elemental composition of coatings was determined by using EDX analysis. Their structure and surface properties were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, contact angle measurement and UV-vis spectrophotometer. The amounts of fluorine on the coatings prepared with IPTES-D10H-GLYEO and IPTES-D10H-GLYMO were 33 and 34 %wt, respectively. Transparent coatings with smooth surface and uniform thickness were obtained. The coatings had nanoscale roughness. The contact angles of coatings for water were range from 103A degrees to 110A degrees, and for n-hexadecane were range from 59A degrees to 62A degrees.
