Fluid, Generic, Deicing/Anti-Icing Runways and Taxiways
This specification covers deicing and anti-icing materials in the form of a fluid.
This deicing/anti-icing fluid has been used typically on runways, taxiways, and other aircraft maneuvering areas for the prevention and removal of frozen deposits of frost and ice. Fluids must not be used to deice/anti-ice aircraft.
Rationale: This specification covers deicing and anti-icing materials in the form of a fluid. In addition, runway and taxiway deicing/anti-icing fluids have been found to catalytically oxidize aircraft carbon brakes and to corrode cadmium plate to varying extents. There is a need for users to understand the effect of these fluids on carbon brakes and cadmium plate. This specification requires testing and reporting of such.
