Abstract: A hyperbranched polymer based on one or more repeating units of an ABx type monomer, wherein A and B are functional groups and x is greater than or equal to 2, wherein A reacts with, or substantially reacts with, B, wherein B is fractionally functionlized with a plurality of functional groups comprising a first functional group comprising a C6-C30 alkyl chain attached to the repeating unit through a carbonyl group (C═O) via an ester linkage, a second functional group comprising a partially fluorinated or perfluorinated C3-C20 alkyl chain attached to the repeating unit through a carbonyl group (C═O) via an ester linkage, and a third functional group comprising substantially one of a stabilized radical source attached to the repeating unit via a C0-C6 tether, or a 5 to 8 member chloroamide heterocycle of carbon and nitrogen that is attached to the repeating unit via a C2-C6 tether.
