(R) Compound, Solid Runway and Taxiway Deicing/Anti-Icing
|Publication Date:||1 September 2010|
This specification covers a deicing and anti-icing compound in the form of a solid.
These compounds have been used typically at airports on aircraft maneuvering areas, such as aprons, runways, and taxiways, for the prevention and removal of frozen deposits of snow, frost, and ice, but usage is not limited to such applications.
While this specification covers technical requirements for solid deicing/anti-icing compounds, it does not address the compatibility issue of combining deicers/anti-icers during the operational phase. Compounds meeting this specification are unique to each manufacturer and may be adversely affected by combining with other deicing/anti-icing products. It is the user's responsibility to become familiar with the safe and proper use of applying multiple deicers/anti-icers.
Pavement Friction Evaluation
Airport authorities should ascertain the friction coefficient of the runway after the application of a deicing/anti-icing compound prior to aircraft landing operations.
Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
