DE-ICING AND ICE PREVENTIVE COMPOSITION AND PROCESS

The present invention relates to a de-icing and ice preventive composition in the form of a reversible gel-sol, for application to surfaces subjected to ice-forming conditions. More particularly, the present invention relates to a de-icing and ice preventive composition for application to metallic surfaces, especially horizontal and vertical electric power conducting rails used with any speed, rapid transit systems, 'people movers', or trains, exposed to climatic icing conditions without interfering with the sliding metal-to-metal or carbon-to-metal contact required between the track and power contact appliances, for example brushes, of high speed rapid transit vehicles.
