COATINGS TO PREVENT OR REDUCE SHIP SUPERSTRUCTURE ICING, PHASE 2: LABORATORY TESTS

A series of tests carried out to evaluate various coatings for their ability to prevent or reduce spray ice and to identify the preferred coating in terms of the minimum bond strength with accumulated ice are discussed. The tests investigated variations of ice bond strength with a number of coatings under realistic ice accretion conditions for ships at sea. Results of tests to correlate bond strength with mechanical de-icing efforts are also reported. Coating preferences are noted, and recommendations are offered to assist in making decisions regarding practical applications. For related document, see AN 9326.
