Ice Undercutting Test Method for Runways and Taxiways Deicing/Anti-icing Chemicals
This test method provides stakeholders (runway deicing chemical manufacturers, deicing/anti-icing chemical operators and airport authorities) with relative ice undercutting capacity of runway deicing chemicals, by measuring the area of ice undercut pattern as a function of time. Such runway deicing chemicals are often also used on taxiways.
Rationale: This test method, for liquid and solid deicing/anti-icing chemicals, offers a quantitative procedure to evaluate the ice undercut as a function of the time and temperature by such deicing/anti-icing chemical and is based on the SHRP H 205.6- MODIFIED FOR AIRPORT APPLICATION (draft April 17/02) Test Method for Ice Undercutting by Liquid Deicing Chemicals (or Solids).
