AIR6172A - Ice Undercutting Test Method for Runways and Taxiways Deicing/Anti-Icing Chemicals

Details
Document Number: AIR6172A
Revision Number: A
Title
Ice Undercutting Test Method for Runways and Taxiways Deicing/Anti-Icing Chemicals
Scope

This test method provides stakeholders (runway deicing chemical manufacturers, users, regulators 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 and other paved areas.

This test method does not quantitatively measure the theoretical or extended time of ice undercutting capability of ready-to-use runway deicing/anti-icing chemicals in liquid or solid form.
