New Coating Repels Ice from Any Surface
Researchers used a new theory in physics called stress localization to create a durable silicone polymer coating capable of repelling ice from any surface. The new material uses elastic energy localization where ice meets the material, triggering cracks at the interface that slough off the ice.
The material can be used on any surface, and it is not only mechanically durable and unaffected by ultraviolet rays – important for aircraft, which face constant Sun exposure. Testing indicates it will last for more than 10 years, with no need to reapply.
