Knowledge and technology transfer: EISAB

Ice formation on technical surfaces, for example on wind turbines or refrigeration plants, increases their maintenance effort, causes unplanned downtimes and poses a safety risk. In the EISAB project, the Institute of Materials Science at TU Dresden and the Leibniz Insitut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V. were jointly developing a new type of ice-repellent coating. Pyroelectric properties of certain polymers are combined with the freezing point lowering effect of hydrophilic polymers. This makes it possible to delay ice formation and minimise ice adhesion.
