Researchers led by Hadi Ghasemi, Bill D. Cook Assistant Professor of mechanical engineering at UH, have created a durable silicone polymer coating capable of repelling ice from any surface.

Work Has Implications for Aircraft, Power Transmission Lines and More

 

Icy weather is blamed for multibillion dollar losses every year in the United States, including delays and damage related to air travel, infrastructure and power generation and transmission facilities. Finding effective, durable and environmentally stable de-icing materials has been stymied by the stubborn tenacity with which ice adheres to the materials on which it forms.
