Abstract : The objectives of the study covered by this report were (a) to identify and evaluate for effectiveness as ice prevention and control agents any proprietary formulations which were determined to be non-deleterious to aircraft metals and plastics; (b) to determine if the commercial chemicals have any detrimental effects to airfield paving materials either by surface deterioration or by producing a surface with undesirable frictional qualities; and (c) to determine the nature of any environmental effects which may result from use of the new ice control agents in SIRC (Snow and ice removal and control) operations.
