Bug repellant airplane coatings tested
Bug smasher pilots everywhere have hope that NASA may be flying to the rescue to save them from the summer chore of cleaning shattered insect bodies from the leading-edge surfaces of their aircraft. NASA, along with Boeing, will be testing five non-stick coatings that are the finalists in a years-long effort to foil the sticky mess that builds up on every surface exposed to the slipstream. The five coatings have already shown their ability to repel bug guts and the water in them, according to a news release, but the winner will also be inexpensive and durable.
