Impact of Alkali Metal-Based Runway De-Icing Fluids on Aircraft Electrical Systems
The SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) focuses on the impact of alkali metal-based runway deicers (potassium acetate, potassium formate, and sodium acetate, and sodium formate) have on in-service aircraft EWIS components.
Raise awareness of the degrading effects that alkali metal-based runway deicers have on in-service aircraft electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) components and review testing and approaches to mitigate failures.
