Deicing and Anti-Icing fluids


De-icing fluid 

TYPE I DE-ICING FLUID

  • FAA approved SAE Type I

  • Sold in 5 gallon pail and 55 Gallon Drums

  • Sold in Ready to use or Concentrate

  • Best used with Gas Powered Carts

SAE Type I Aircraft Ground Deicing Fluids are designed for all fixed-wing, metal aircraft (piston, turboprop, or jet) to remove frost, snow & i ce prior to flight.  They're typically sprayed hot, directly onto the aircraft's critical surfaces with a handheld or powered sprayer to 'melt' the frozen contaminates, thereby allowing safe takeoff.  We offer two formulations of Aircraft Ground Deicing Fluid.

Anti-Iceing Fluid

tYPE IV ANTI-ICING FLUID

  • This fluid is FAA approved, SAE Type IV anti-icing fluid, per FSAT 99-07 for Part 135 and 121 operations.

  • Conforms to the specifications of SAE AMS 1428 and ISO 11078

  • Best used with Electric Powered Carts

  • Sold in 5 gallon pail and 55 gallon drum

Aircraft Deicing Type IV Anti-Icing Fluid  is designed for contaminate-free, fixed-wing, metal aircraft (Vr of 85 Knots or more, only)  to delay the accumulation of frost, snow & ice while on the ramp and taxiing for takeoff.  It's typically sprayed unheated, directly upon the aircraft's upper wing and tail surfaces.  Because of its viscous nature, it clings to those surfaces and "absorbs" the continuing frozen precipitation.  The anti-icing fluid (and entrapped contaminants) are then "sheared" off the wing/tail surfaces by wind speed on the takeoff roll. We offer one formulation of Aircraft Ground Anti-Icing Fluid: Formula IV.


Formula X (Concentrate)

Aircraft Deicing “TYPE 1” De-icing Fluid must be used diluted and heated, in accordance with FAA approved deicing/anti icing program.  This FAA approved program should reference SAE ARP 4737 & ISO 11076.

Please reference the following chart and graph which shows freeze point information for “TYPE 1” and water mixtures.  When temperatures below –18ï‚°C, (0ï‚°F), are expected, use “TYPE1” at 55/45 dilution with water.  For temperatures below -26ï‚°C (-12ï‚°F), use at 60/40 dilution with water.  Always select the dilution to maintain a temperature buffer of at least 10ï‚°C, (18ï‚°F) lower than the outside air temperature (DAT) or the aircraft’s skin temperature, whichever is lower.
