The formation of ice on surfaces is a major problem in many areas, for example in aviation. Aircraft wings and moving parts of helicopters that have frozen have to be de-iced in a complex manner.


At Fraunhofer IGB, we are developing a passive anti-icing system as part of the InTEnt-H project. The unique and resource-saving anti-icing coating on self-adhesive, transparent and erosion-stable PU films is generating considerable cost savings and significant increases in the efficiency of active de-icing systems.
