Developing Anti-Icing Technology

The development of an anti-icing coating for the aviation industry is a recognised challenge which to date has not been achieved. The aim of the ICEMART project is to develop a novel passive ice-repellent coating that will prevent ice formation and adhesion without the need for active ice-management.

Lead by CAV Ice Protection, part funded by Innovate UK and with a global consortium including Opus Materials Technologies our approach is disruptive & unique. Using Nano technology and built on patented ground-breaking technology we aim to overcome the well-known fragility of nanostructured coatings by using novel additives that can be incorporated into conventional aviation coatings.
