Nice ice, maybe: Study finds water-repelling surfaces ease ice removal

A new study has discovered that ice grows differently on water-absorbent vs. water-repellent surfaces. The research suggests that applying water-repellent coatings to windshields before winter storms — or engineering surfaces that inherently repel water — could enable a strong breeze to handle the burden of ice removal.
