Aircraft Deicing Fluids

UCAR PG Aircraft Deicing Fluid

UCAR™ PG ADF is a propylene glycol-based fluid containing water, corrosion inhibitors, wetting agents and an orange dye. The product is formulated (when diluted to a desired concentration) to assist in removing ice, snow, and frost from the exterior surfaces of aircraft. When mixed with water at a 65/35 (fluid to water) ratio, UCAR PG ADF applied to a large high-speed jet aircraft has a Lowest Operational Use Temperature (LOUT) of -34°C (-29°F).

UCAR PG ADF Concentrate nominally contains approximately 88.0% by weight propylene glycol. UCAR PG ADF Concentrate must be mixed with the appropriate amount of water before use to make a UCAR PG ADF aqueous solution with the desired freezing point.

Conformance to Industry Standards

UCAR PG ADF Concentrate conforms to all technical requirements of the Society of Automotive Engineers Aerospace Material Specification1 (SAE AMS)1424D for Aircraft Deicing/Anti-icing Fluid SAE Type I, the Douglas CSD #1 Type VI specification, revised May 1988, and the Boeing D6-17487 specification, revision L. Copies of certificates of conformance issued by independent laboratories are available upon request.
