The main aim of this research work is to develop a multi walled carbo nanotubes and carbon nano fibers in a superhydrophobic manner.It is developed in the form of a carbon composite. The work is coated by including a water contact angle 158.2° and also with an inclined angle of 5.2°. The advanced processing technique is utilized in this work.In this the combimation of supercritical fluid processing is done.The supercooled water experiment (SWT) displayed that the surface of composite coating wettability is a major controlling section for decreasing ice accretion on the stable surface. Based on the observations it can be identified that both the carbon nao tubes and multi walled carbon nano tubes had a very good wear resistant.Moreover, the ~120 S duration of rubbing the inclusion of trapped wear fibers and matrix increase the friction of force because of strong adsorption and the resulting composites have strong mechanical transduction compared with CNF and MWCNT coating. These results show that a coating strategy is very effective for anti-icing system and it s attributed to the the impending value in certain application where maximum scale is required.
