NuSil to Present Silicone-Based Ice-Release Coatings at Deicing and Stormwater Conference

Published on 2013-07-26. Author : SpecialChem

NuSil Technology, one of the leading global silicone suppliers, is the only ice-release coating manufacturer that contributed to SAE's Aerospace Information Report (AIR) 6232, a new publication on evaluating deicing methods. On Wednesday July 31 at the Deicing and Stormwater Conference in Arlington, Virginia, Mark Vedder from NuSil Technology's Aerospace and Defense business unit will present "Silicone-Based Ice-Release Coatings and Testing Processes", which focuses on information influential to as well as inspired by the construction of the AIR.

NuSil's silicone coatings for ice-release continue to build upon their reputation for excellence. The data speaks for itself: Compared to other deicing coatings, our ice-release materials most significantly and competitively reduce the amount of force required to remove ice from aerodynamic surfaces - raising the bar in technologies for safer, more efficient use of aircraft vehicles.

The Deicing and Stormwater Conference, which runs July 31-August 1 at the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City hotel, is put on by the Airports Council International (ACI) and co-sponsored by Airlines 4 America (A4A) and Regional Airline Association (RAA). According to ACI's website, the event "will convene representatives from airports, airlines, associations, service providers and government agencies to provide a forum to learn about recent aviation deicing regulatory updates, new technologies and best management practices."
