Abstract:

In this Phase I, MMI will explore a novel anti-ice coating formulation for aircraft structures. MMI will demonstrate the use of a nanoparticle polymer composite system modified with inorganic materials that would prevent ice accumulation and accretion on various substrates e.g. aluminum, steel, titanium and carbon composite materials by creating superhydrophobic surfaces on the substrates. This coating formulation will provide: & #8226;
