Cryotech Deicing Technology Launches Polar Shield TKS In-Flight Ice Prevention Fluid

Feb 03, 2015


Cryotech Deicing Technology announces the addition of Polar Shield TKS In-Flight Ice Prevention Fluid to its current lineup of aircraft deicing products. The new fluid expands on Cryotech's world leading deicing expertise and provides a quality ice prevention fluid to the North American aviation market.

Cryotech Polar Shield is designed to be used in conjunction with a weeping wing system for deicing protection during flight. While it is unadvised for pilots to fly into known icing conditions, at times the situation is unavoidable. The weeping wing system and the fluids designed for in-flight deicing, such as Polar Shield, enable pilots to reach their destination safely when faced with unfavorable weather situations.

Polar Shield meets, in full, the requirements described in DTD 406B. It is triple filtered through one micron filters during production to ensure small particulates do not contaminate the fluid.

"Fluid purity is extremely important in an in-flight ice prevention fluid," explained Melissa Newkirk, Chemical Engineer Cryotech Deicing Technology. "Fluid impurities may clog membranes and prevent even fluid dispersal across the wing. The triple filtration purification process ensures maximized fluid flow through the weeping wing membranes."

For over ten years, Cryotech has manufactured aircraft deicing fluids. Cryotech's experienced technical team continuously develops, introduces and enhances industry technology; ensuring products exceed both industry standards and stringent environmental demands.

"Cryotech is a leader in deicing technology." said Keith Johnson, President and CEO of Cryotech Deicing Technology. "Building on this strong foundation and adding products such as Polar Shield TKS and Glacier Blue Ready to Use Lavatory Fluid, we have extended our customer reach into the general aviation market. It is through efforts like these that Cryotech continues to grow and raise the bar on innovation in the deicing industry, providing deicing customers with solutions."

Polar Shield is available for purchase directly from Cryotech Deicing Technology and through various on-line distributors.
