Abstract:

Final report on work done in developing a deicing coating to facilitate removal of ice accumulations on shipboard on development of ice adhesion theories and on development of methods for evaluating ice adhesion. Developed coating XZ-8-3057 polysiloxane type effective but short-lived 2-3 weeks because of degradation by solar-radiation absorption. Shipboard use is recommended. Approach is indicated for extending life by incorporating solar-radiation absorbers. Author
