Anti-Icing Coating

Ice accumulation is a serious concern in many applications such as aviation, shipping, communications, and power generation and transmission. At this time there is no coating available that prevents the build-up of ice. However, we have developed an economical anti-ice coating that in independent tests demonstrated a reduction in ice adhesion by a factor of approximately four in comparison to bare aluminum. The coating is projected to be relatively inexpensive and easy to apply. Potential uses include any application where even a relatively small reduction in ice adhesion is valuable and where a large surface area has to be coated.

The linked test results contains a brief description of the test procedure and a summary of the results. This testing was performed by the Anti-Icing Materials International Laboratory (opens in new window).
