Example 2: Antennas
Without HIREC®, snow sticks to the disc, creating the possibility of interference or interruption of transmission.
With HIREC®, even in winter, when it is not possible to coat the disc directly, it is possible to apply countermeasures with vinyl sheet covers.
Example 3: Airport guidance antennas
Although snow will not simply fall off of HIREC®-treated surfaces unless they are steeply inclined, ice and snow will not stick to it. Cleaning therefore takes very little time.
Example 4: Anemometers
Anemometers cannot work properly when they are covered in ice or snow. HIREC® application prevents this accumulation.
Example 5: Bridges
Because snow boards (vertical boards installed to prevent snow from accumulating) treated with HIREC® repel snow at earlier stages than those without, cars passing underneath are not affected by falling snow. The arches (without treatment) accumulate snow.
Example 6: High-Voltage Line Insulation
Usage of HIREC®100's antifouling properties as a solution to insulation failure caused by aerial pollution is currently being investigated.
