AIRCRAFT AFTER-MARKET SURFACE COATING INTERACTION WITH GROUND DEICING / ANTI-ICING FLUIDS
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides descriptions of test methods for determining if an aircraft after-market wing surface coating has adverse effects on ground deicing / anti-icing fluids with respect to fluid holdover time performance and aerodynamic performance. Although not the primary mandate of the G-12 Ground Deicing Committee , this document also provides descriptions of suggested test methods for evaluating aircraft after-market surface coatings with respect to durability, hardness, weathering, aerodynamic drag, ice adhesion, ice accumulation, contact angle, and thermal conductivity. These additional tests can provide informational data for characterizing the coatings and may be useful to operators when evaluating the coatings.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides a description of screening methods for verifying if aircraft after-market wing surface coatings have adverse effects on aircraft ground deicing / anti-icing fluid performance as published in the holdover time guidelines. Although recommended performance criteria have been outlined, ultimately, the interpretation of the test results outlined in this document will be left to the discretion of the aircraft operator.
