AN APPROACH TO THE SHIPBOARD ICING PROBLEM

Deals with criteria and performance standards for a coating to which ice will not adhere, specifically with extrinsic factors which affect ice adhesion, due to the environment rather than to the properties of the ice and substrate: the types of bonds formed between molecules of ice and those of the substrate; number of bonds of each type per unit area; flexibility of the bulk substrate relative to that of ice; method of test; purity of the water; interfacial area; temperature; age of the ice-substrate joint and rate of stress application. Tabulated data for ice adhesion to 41 compounds are given. Materials which show deicing properties are the Dow Corning Corp. silicone resin XZ-8-3057 and duPont's FEP Teflon.
