dc.descriptionSpecial Report-
dc.descriptionAbstract: This report describes laboratory tests to determine the effectiveness of a copolymer coating on a balloon to minimize ice build-up problems when operating in sleet, freezing rain or other ice-forming conditions. Methods for deicing the surface after an ice cover forms are also described. A small-scale balloon was used for the laboratory tests. A full-scale prototype was also partially coated with the copolymer to test its effectiveness as an icing control measure.-
