Abstract To gain knowledge about cause–effect relationships for the adhesion of ice on surfaces with different chemical groups, we wanted to study the effect of thin polymer layers on the ice adhesion strength. To minimize the effect of roughness, smooth substrates that have generally relatively low ice adhesion strengths were chosen. To be able to obtain highly reproducible values for the region of low ice adhesion and to measure small differences of ice adhesion at surfaces with different chemical compositions, a new measuring system for the determination of the ice adhesion strength which is based on a modified spin-coater was developed. We show its technical potential on the basis of first results on pure silicon wafers and selected hydrophilic polymer layers. Furthermore, we investigated the effect of the water quality on the ice adhesion strength. The obtained data are discussed in the context of physicochemical properties of the layers and of the chemical characteristics of the used polymers.
