Innovative coatings for advanced applications - Development of active anti-ice coatings
The surface ice formation is an important phenomenon which affects multiple aspects of human daily activities. The icing has remarkable impact on certain industrial sectors such as aerospace, naval, construction and energy. A good example is the ice formation on airplanes and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) where it could endanger enormously planes´ aerodynamic efficiency and thus can even provoke accidents with severe consequences or cancelation of drones´ mission. Another problem is the loss of efficiency and safety risks related to ice formation on the surface of wind turbines, especially on blades. To deal with iceformation several systems has been developed that are able to prevent ice accumulation or to facilitate its removal. Hereby, we report on novel active heated systems based on chemical modification of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and organofluorine polymers based on the Joule effect.
