A This study focus on reducing ice adhesion strength and prolonging the freezing time on the surface of equipment which service in a cold environment. We prepared anti-icing/icephobic coating by combining epoxy, amino-silicone and nano-SiO2particles. It was found that the coating improved static contact angle (CA) and reduced contact angle hysteresis (CAH) obviously, which had close relation with ice adhesion strength and freezing time. Finally, we compared the coating with aluminum sheet, and found the coating reduced ice adhesion and prolonged freezing time obviously. This coating can be easily prepared on large-scale surface and suitable for polar ship and equipment.
