The FAA has established standards for liquid runway deicers, SAE AMS 1435 covers deicing and anti-icing materials in the form of a liquid. This specification identifies material and environmental properties and establishes minimum standards for material compatibility and performance. Cryotech BX36® meets or exceeds all requirements of the current standard. Certifications are supplied at customer request.
Deicers meeting FAA approved standards vary in formulation and have different performance characteristics. It is, therefore, important to pay close attention to bid specifications written into product solicitations. Failure to properly consider all the elements associated with product formulation, product quality, product performance, product storage and handling, and the manufacturer’s ability to supply can compromise operations. BX36 guide specification is available upon request.
