Ice is great for cooling your lemonade or treating a sprained ankle, but it can create a number of problems.
Ice build-up on homes—for example, on a roof or doorway—can cause significant damage. Freezing water can cause shortages in electrical insulators, ruining equipment and disrupting service. Ice buildup on airplane wings and electrical transmission lines or towers can be costly to repair, and fatal to those nearby.
NeverWet™ coatings provide a solution to the challenges of ice formation. Since water droplets don't touch these surfaces, the freezing droplets merely fall to the side.
