During the process of ice formation, the cool liquid striking the blade surface causes the release of heat by the PCM (phase change material) infused coating. The PCM structures undergo solid-solid phase change and the temperature of the coating surface increases. The effect minimizes bonding of the ice to the coating.
NEINICE can be applied by rolling or spraying the surface. Application methods vary depending on site specific conditions, but include platform and robotics drones for up-tower applications, and ground crews for down-tower.
NEINICE is an environmentally safe coating engineered as a 100% solids system with virtually no VOC’s. It is resistant to UV rays as well as water, corrosion, abrasion, and biological threats, such as insects or birds.
NEINICE coats in a thin layer of less than 25 microns and its thickness is less than 4 mils.
NEINICE is designed to be applied in temperatures above 32° Fahrenheit or 0° Centigrade.
NEINICE is a NON-CONDUCTIVE coating that helps to protect blades during these events.
NEINICE comes in a gallon kit.A gallon of NEINICE will cover approximately 800-1000 square feet of surface area. This may vary depending on environmental conditions and the application method.
