Ice Undercutting Test Method for Runway Deicing Product
This test method provides stakeholders (runway deicing product manufacturers, users, regulators and airport authorities) with relative ice undercutting capacity of runway deicing products, by measuring the area of ice undercut pattern as a function of time. Such runway deicing products are often also used on taxiways and other paved areas.
