The Global Market for Ice-Resistant Coatings and Surfaces

The Global Market for Ice-Resistant Coatings and Surfaces

Coatings and surfaces that can delay ice formation (anti-icing) and facilitate rapid, facile removal of ice buildup (de-icing) are essential in a wide range of industries. Ice accretion on airplanes, ships, solar cells, wind turbines and power lines is a significant physical and economic hazard. When ice accumulates on the exposed surfaces of airplanes it can result in an increase in drag, decrease in lift, and reduced visibility. Ice loads on marine structures affect safety and performance in in ice-covered regions. Ice accretion on wind turbines, particularly turbine blades, can severely impede aerodynamic performance, resulting in reduced power output.
In recent years there has been major technological and materials developments in Ice-resistant coatings and surfaces, with new coatings developed with greater durability and ability to withstand different environment conditions.
