Ice-phobic silicone coatings

Ice-phobic silicone coatings

nusillogo_10280394.png

NuSil Technology has completed extensive ice adhesion testing and broadened its line of ice-phobic coatings by adding four new products - all room temperature vulcanizing (RTV), one-part cure systems consisting of both fluorosilicone and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) coatings. Ice-phobic coatings are commonly used on aircraft wings, control surfaces, and engines. Current solutions, such as heating systems and chemical de-icing, can be costly and must be used after each exposure, offering only short-term protection. In addition, chemical de-icing is hazardous to the environment and some chemicals have even been banned. The EPA recently increased airport restrictions regarding how much glycol, a hazardous chemical commonly sprayed on aircraft to remove ice, must be captured in order to reduce exposure to the environment. NuSil's line of ice-phobic materials offers a more durable, environmentally friendly alternative that provides long-term protection. Two of the new additions are R-3975 and R-3930 - one-part, fluorosilicone, RTV silicone elastomers for coating, sealing and bonding applications requiring solvent and fuel resistance against fuels such as JP8 and DiEGME. In addition, R-1009 and R-1082 are similar one-part, RTV silicone elastomers for use in ice-phobic applications not requiring fuel or solvent resistance, offering two different cure chemistries: oxime and acetoxy.
