Evaluation of Novel Film Forming Polymers to Reduce Freezing and Salt Damage

2005 | Dr. Glynn Percival & Professor C. Payne, Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory-UK & Univ. of Reading
There is a demand for compounds that can protect against freezing temperatures and deicing salt that are inexpensive and applied on short notice. Liquid plastics previously used antitranspirants can also form a physical barrier to protect against salt damage and an insulating layer to protect against freezing damage.
