SAE* AIR 5567, an Aerospace Information Report, provides an accelerated test method to determine the impact of runway de-icer chemicals to airplane carbon brakes. This method is referenced in the latest editions of SAE AMS 1435 and 1431 standards as “informational only”. The purpose of this data is to provide “all stakeholders” with a relative assessment of the effect of de-icing chemicals on carbon brakes so that they can make an informed decision as to the runway de-icer that best fits their needs whether it is carbon brake oxidation, environmental, economics and/or employee health & safety.
*SAE International is a US based organization that coordinates the development of global technical standards, including:
To learn more or take part in the discussions, you may contact SAE and/or participate in the proceedings of the SAE G-12 Aircraft Ground De-icing Committee.
NASi staff actively participate in various committees and scientific studies in an effort to continuously improve performance, safety, and environmental impact. Please contact NASi if you are interested in de-icing product alternatives that specifically address carbon brake oxidation.
Numerous laboratory and field studies have been conducted to evaluate the performance of de-icing and anti-icing products and the resulting friction coefficient of treated pavement. However laboratory results often do not translate to real world field performance due to varying temperatures, wind, traffic, etc. in actual conditions.
Airports must rely upon the practical expertise of their personnel to ascertain runway friction. NASi products used together with an effective snow and ice management program enable airport operators to maximize airfield friction.
