Proactive Solutions for Ice Mitigation

OUR FOCUS :

Mitigate Ice Accumulation

PHAZEBREAK Coatings has developed an advanced ice shedding coating that minimizes ice formation on a variety of surfaces. This ice-mitigating coating is based on novel silicone-based phase change materials (PCMs).

Unlike conventional coatings, which rely solely on surface hydrophobicity or sacrificial materials that lose effectiveness over time, NEINICE offers a more effective, longer lasting solution to icing events by the incorporation of PCMs.

PRODUCT DETAILS

NEINICE

Product image: Can of Neinice

DESCRIPTION :

NEINICE provides icephobic and hydrophobic technology that minimizes ice accumulation, thus causing ice removal.
It is compatible over most existing coating systems, providing protection from weather and UV exposure, dramatically extending service life.

FEATURES :

  • Only a thin layer, less than 4 mils, is required to provide maximum coverage.
  • Exceptional corrosion protection
  • Excellent weather and UV resistance
  • Abrasion and wear resistant
  • Environmentally friendly – 100% solids, no solvents, zero VOC’s
  • Simple and safe to apply
  • Superior coverage

DESCRIPTION :

NEINICE FLEX provides icephobic protection for surfaces, such as power lines, allowing them to move and bend due to winds without cracking or eroding.

FEATURES :

  • Exceptional corrosion protection
  • Excellent weather and UV resistance
  • Abrasion and wear resistant
  • Environmentally friendly – 100% solids, no solvents, zero VOC’s
  • Safe to apply
  • Superior coverage

Phase Change Materials

NEINICE prevents ice accumulation from anchoring to the coated surface.

Ice Coating

During the process of ice formation, liquid water releases heat to the PCM structures as it cools. The PCM structures undergo solid-solid phase changes and local strain stresses the surface interface. The effect minimizes bonding of the ice to the coating.

Ice Release

As the coating sheds unanchored ice, exposed regions begin to cool to repeat the cycle.

APPLICATIONS

NEINICE was designed to improve efficiency and maintain operations during icing events. We continue to innovate to meet different industry specifications.

Ice coated wind turbine

Wind Energy

NEINICE provides an ice-phobic coating that prevents ice accumulation on wind turbine blades and improves turbine output during ice events.

Ice coated airplane

Aviation

NEINICE provides an alternative solution to costly, time consuming, and environmentally damaging ice removal systems when applied to wings and other flight surfaces.

Ice coated boat

Marine

NEINICE provides not only ice protection for marine vessels but prevents the build-up of biologics to the hulls and sides.

Ice coated power lines

Power Lines

NEINICE can help to avoid heavy ice build-up on power lines and power stations to eliminate outages and other dangers connected to falling lines and trees.

Ice covered rail road tracks

Rail Lines

NEINICE prevents rail switching systems from freezing, thus preventing train delays and costly labor to melt the ice build-up.
