Active & ice-repellent coatings on rotor blades

Details

  • Description

Ice-minimizing coatings are technically relevant for numerous branches of industry, such as wind energy and refrigeration technology, as well as aviation, since tires for these systems not only mean increased material wear and energy consumption, but are also associated with an impairment of safety. Sustainable surface coatings, whose functionality and structure prevent or minimize icing, have been the focus of research for some time.
