Abstract:

Ice-shedding clearcoats are proposed based on transparent materials having large solid-solid phase changes. Phase I develops candidate coating formulations and evaluates their performance as military topcoats for aircraft. Tests are planned to demonstrate concept feasibility. These include of elimination of ice adhesion, compatibility with current coating systems, meeting technical performance requirements for aircraft, as well as environmental friendliness. Phase II further develops those novel coatings for aircraft by characterizing service life and determining service life protocols of the developed coating on panels as well as actual aircraft surfaces.
