Abstract

Abstract A novel and simple method was developed to prepare a porous superhydrophobic polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating on a wind turbine blade. The water contact angle and sliding angle of the superhydrophobic PVDF coating were 156±1.9° and 2°, respectively. The superhydrophobic PVDF coating showed excellent anti-icing property. The present work will provide a new way to fabricate anti-icing coating on wind turbine blades and other outdoor equipments.
