A New Surface Coating for Prevention of Icing on Airfoils 2007-01-3315

New icephobic paint has been developed for the purpose of preventing the icing of the airfoils of aircrafts. The basic characteristics of the paint in terms of icing prevention were examined by an optical method and a load test. The water contact angle is so high-150 degrees-that high water repellency can be obtained as expected from the design. The adhesion strength of the ice formed on this coating is decreased to the lowest value as compared to all paints ever developed. The results from the icing wind tunnel test carried out in conditions similar to what aircrafts encounter show that the paint contributes to fuel and weight savings due to the effective use of deicer.
