(R) Solid Runway Deicing/Anti-Icing Product
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
This specification covers a runway deicing and anti-icing product in the form of a solid. Unless otherwise stated, all specifications referenced herein are latest (current) revision.
These products 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 runway deicing/anti-icing products, it does not address the compatibility issue of combining runway deicing products during the operational phase. Products 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 deicing/anti-icing products.
Liquefied Solid Deicing Product
When the solid deicing/anti-icing product is liquefied and used as a liquid runway deicing/anti-icing product, the resulting liquid at the highest recommended dilution shall meet the requirements of AMS1435.
Pavement Friction Evaluation
Airport authorities should ascertain the friction coefficient of the runway after the application of a deicing/anti-icing product 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.
