Aircraft De-Icing

Even in extreme winter conditions, runways need to be clear and the surfaces of aircraft must be are free from ice and snow before take-off.

This is why Clariant has developed De-/Anti-Icing Fluids, which fulfill all international requirements. We apply exacting standards to the quality and reliability of these products. In attaining these standards, environmental protection is given equal priority.

Clariant has wide-ranging expertise in research, development and environmental protection. With over 40 years of de-icing industry experience, our aircraft de-icing products ensure the safety that people depend on.

  • Type I

    Type I Fluids are water/glycol mixtures with a glycol content of at least 80%, which contain a corrosion inhibition package. These fluids have been used for many years to remove ice, snow and frost (De-Icing). They offer only very limited protection against further icing due to freezing precipitation.

    Type I fluids can be used in “single fluid” de / anti-icing operations, but are usually used in conjunction with Type II, or IV as part of a two-step de / anti-icing procedure.

    Specification: AMS 1424, ISO 11075

      Octaflo EF is an AMS 1424, propylene glycol based Type I de-icing fluid. It was developed to be a low aquatic toxicity fluid. It is a low foaming fluid which evenly covers the aircraft surfaces. more

  • Type II

    Type II fluids contain at least 50% of glycol and a corrosion inhibition package. Furthermore they contain pseudoplastic thickener system which additionally protects the aircraft against Re-freezing (Anti-Icing) due to its film-forming properties.

    Type II fluids can be used in “single fluid” de / anti-icing operations, or can be used in conjunction with Type I as part of a two-step de / anti-icing procedure.

    Specifications: AMS 1428, ISO 11078

    • Safewing® MP II Flight

      Safewing® MP II FLIGHT is a modern propylene based type II de/anti-icing fluid. It meets and exceeds all requirements of the latest revision AMS 1428. more

  • Type IV

    Type IV fluids contain at least 50% of glycol and a corrosion inhibition package. Furthermore they contain pseudoplastic thickener system which additionally protects the aircraft against Re-freezing (Anti-Icing) due to its film-forming properties.

    Type IV fluids offer longer holdover than Type II fluids.

    Type IV fluids can be used in “single fluid” de / anti-icing operations, or can be used in conjunction with Type I as part of a two-step de / anti-icing procedure.

    Specifications: AMS 1428, ISO 11078
