Unprecedented Icephobicity

Key Performance Properties

Contact angle of water with AeroPel is >160° in tests on glass, aluminum and copper alloys (compared with approx. 80° on untreated substrates)

Receding angle of water with AeroPel is >130° in tests on glass, aluminum and copper alloys (compared with approx. 60° on untreated substrates)

Roll off angle with AeroPel is <10° in tests on glass, aluminum and copper alloys

Ice adhesion strength with AeroPel is <10kPa, compared to uncoated aluminum ice adhesion which is >1200kPa.

AeroPel functions at a thickness of just 1.5mil post-curing and in a wide temperature range: -50 to 250 degrees Celsius.
