Transparent icephobic coatings using bio-based epoxy resin
Ice accretion and accumulation pose serious challenges for maintaining the operation and performance of outdoor facilities in cold climate. Epoxy resin, with a wide range of formulation possibilities, is widely used as ...
Bioinspired surfaces with superwettability for anti-icing and ice-phobic application : concept, mechanism, and design
Ice accumulation poses a series of severe issues in daily life. Inspired by the nature, superwettability surfaces have attracted great interests from fundamental research to anti‐icing and ice‐phobic applications. Here, ...
When superhydrophobic coatings are icephobic : role of surface topology
Among different types of anti-icing coatings, superhydrophobic coatings have attracted considerable attention due to their water repellency and low heat-transfer rate. However, condensation on superhydrophobic surfaces at ...
