ICE Laboratory

ICE laboratory

ICE laboratory is placed in a cold climate room, where temperature can be set between room temperature and -40°C. Icing facilities include the Icing Wind Tunnel (IWiT) and the Centrifugal ice Adhesion Test (CAT). These are used for icing research and evaluation of icephobicity, icing behavior and icing phenomena. Test systems in the ICE laboratory support research and development of icephobic materials and surfaces as well as application-related testing possibilities. We can train users and offer key testing facilities for icing related projects.
