INFLUENCE OF SUPERHYDROPHOBIC PROPERTIES ON DEICING


Nowadays the creation of anti-icing, or deicing, surfaces is one of the most important problems, as such surfaces are widely used in aeronautics, wind turbines, and telecommunication antennas. In this paper, we focus mainly on reducing the ice adhesion forces and easy ice removing, once ice has formed. Removal of a liquid from a surface can be provided by modification of the surface wettability by means of applying superhydrophobic coatings. Such coatings are waterresistant, i.e., are characterized by low water adhesion forces. To study the impact of superhydrophobic coatings, tests were performed on the surface of a wing in a wind tunnel. By spraying Teflon and polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) on the wing, we obtained a superhydrophobic film. This film has the structure that provides superhydrophobic properties, so that the wetting angle is above 140°. A comparison of the resulting surface with a clean Teflon one shows that adhesion of the Teflon + PPS mixture to an aluminum surface is five times higher. We also investigate the degree of ice formation on the surfaces of simple and superhydrophobic aircraft wings at a temperature of –18°C. It was shown that ice was formed on a simple wing within 40 s and on a superhydrophobic wing within 25 s. When the simple wing with a mass of 23 g was inserted into the wind tunnel, its mass reached 50 g, and for a superhydrophobic wing with a mass of 26 g the latter reached 42 g. The sample of the airfoil wing we prepared has a low adhesion, which helps in easy ice removing
