This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) advises that some of the chemicals being used to disinfect, de-ice, and clean airplanes can cause corrosion and/or degradation of landing gear components. Landing gear equipment includes shock struts, braces, actuators, wheels, brakes, tires, and electrical components. Some of the chemicals that have been recognized as potentially injurious are identified and recommendations for mitigating damage are presented.
There are several operational situations occurring that result in various fluids contacting landing gear structures and components. Such events are spraying disinfectants to combat transmutable diseases (foot and mouth), de-icing sprays and cleaning solutions. These solutions can be caustic and have detrimental effects on landing gear components with possible material degradation. This document provides information on cleaning and removing caustic fluids. It suggests procedures and methods to document such occurrences and provides recommended inspections to help minimize the impact on the landing gear system.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
