View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
An electrothermal coating can include a nanostructure mixture randomly dispersed in a polymer matrix with more than one type of low-dimensional nanostructure. These types of low-dimensional nanostructures can include a combination of a nanospheroid plus one or both of a linear nanostructure and a planar nanostructure. Useful conductivity is achieved, while concentration of the mixed nanostructures is within the cured polymer composite coating being below the percolation limit of each individual carbon nanostructure type, alone, within an identical polymer matrix.
