Repels gaseous state matter in order to reduce effect of conductive heating/cooling
I don't know how this could work.
Something to do with the boundary layer and surface energy.
I don't have a clue about surface chemistry.
Well...a hyperaquaphobic, if it still worked with gaseous
water would push away a good portion of the air..perhaps
creating enough flow to keep the rest
of the air at bay?
Perhaps one could do it with static electricity?

Ion wind, search youtube or wiki.
||Hydrobead is successful in repelling water using fine
hairs like that of a lotus flower. Maybe something
similar can be employed here.
