Anti-Icing Coatings – The Hope for Cold Days

22. Mai 2024
Einladung / Flyer

Snow during winter is always reason of joy and happiness, but its excessive accumulation affects infrastructure, electrical services, roads, and flights, leading to severe malfunction that endangers life. Using an environmentally friendly process, we developed a coating that retards the ice formation, reduces ice adhesion, is durable, and can be applied to nearly any surface. Little by little anti-icing materials will change how we experience life in cold days.
