The FAA has established standards for solid runway deicers. SAE AMS 1431 covers all solid deicing/anti-icing compounds. This specification identifies material and environmental properties, and establishes minimum standards for material compatibility and performance. Cryotech NAAC® meets or exceeds all requirements of the current standard. Certifications are supplied at customer request.
Deicers meeting FAA 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, and the manufacturer's ability to supply can compromise operations. NAAC guide specification is available upon request.
