Deicing/Anti-Icing Fluid, Aircraft, SAE Type I
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers a deicing/anti-icing material in the form of a fluid.
The fluid is generally used heated either diluted with water, or as supplied, for the removal of, and time-limited protection against, deposits of frost, ice, and snow on exterior aircraft surfaces prior to takeoff.
Consult aircraft manufacturer's maintenance manual and service letters to determine any restrictions relating to the use of deicing/anti-icing fluids for type and model of aircraft being treated. Refer also to SAE ARP 4737.
The manufacturer shall determine and report the lowest operational use temperature (LOUT) for the recommended dilutions of their fluid(s).
The LOUT for an SAE Type I fluid is the lowest temperature at which the fluid has been tested and certified in accordance with the appropriate aerodynamic acceptance tests (3.5.3) while maintaining the 10 °C (18 °F) freezing point buffer (see SAE ARP 4737).

The SAE G-12 Aircraft Ground Deicing committee addresses all facets of aircraft ground deicing equipment¿design, maintenance, operation, and in-service experience. It provides a focal point for the related activities of the various specialty groups and committees dealing with aircraft ground deicing. The group is comprised of eight subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for aircraft ground deicing systems. These subcommittees include:G-12DF Deicing Facilities G-12HOT Hold-over Testing G-12M Methods G-12F Fluids G-12E Equipment G-12ID Ice Detection G-12T Training G-12FG Future Deicing Participants in the SAE G-12 committee include OEMs, suppliers, aircraft ground deicing equipment companies, consulting firms, government and others across the aerospace and defense industries.
