Abstract : The possibility of obtain/ng or developing a coating material to prevent ice and snow accumulation was further investigated. Qualitative ice adhesion and frost retention experiments indicated that all available materials would accumulate ice under the proper conditions. Although it might be possible to develop suitable coatings with low adhesion to ice, rather than no adhesion, the potential usefulness of such coatings to the Bureau of Yards and Docks does not appear to be sufficient to warrant further research at the present time.
