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).
Accumulation, anchoring, and adhesion of ice to mechanical equipment poses significant risk and loss to owners and operators.
NEINICE provides icephobic and hydrophobic technology that minimizes ice accumulation, thus causing ice removal.
Wind Turbines, Solar Panels, Power Infrastructure, and more.
NEINICE allows turbines to quickly recover from icing events, thus producing increased operating time and output.
Reduce ice build-up significantly lowers the risk of ice throw.
Wind farms operating during severe ice events are able to take advantage of surge energy pricing.
NEINICE was designed to improve efficiency and maintain operations during icing events. We continue to innovate to meet different industry specifications.
NEINICE provides an ice-phobic coating that prevents ice accumulation on wind turbine blades and improves turbine output during ice events.
NEINICE provides an alternative solution to costly, time consuming, and environmentally damaging ice removal systems when applied to wings and other flight surfaces.
NEINICE provides not only ice protection for marine vessels but prevents the build-up of biologics to the hulls and sides.
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.
NEINICE prevents rail switching systems from freezing, thus preventing train delays and costly labor to melt the ice build-up.
Always trying to innovate. Please contact us for further applicational uses.
NEINICE prevents ice accumulation from anchoring to the coated surface.
Ice-phobic coating resin matrix containing PCM structures at ambient temperature
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.
As the coating sheds unanchored ice, exposed regions begin to cool to repeat the cycle.
