Company Profile

  • Type I De/Anti-Icing Fluids

    Type I de/anti-icing fluid are manufactured and qualified to AMS 1424 / ISO 11075 specifications.

    They are primarily used for de-icing and do not offer any significant anti-icing holdover protection. Because of this Type I fluids are commonly used as part of a two-step de/anti-icing procedure when the final application of a Type II or Type IV fluid provides the required extra protection.

    Kilfrost offers two different Type I fluid options: DF Plus, the most popular choice of fluid,and DFSustain, which operates at a lower temperature, has good storage stability and is low foaming/triazole free.

  • Type II De/Anti-icing Fluids

    Type II de/anti-icing fluids are manufactured and qualified to AMS 1428 / ISO 11078 specifications. Type II fluids can be used for de-icing purposes but (unlike Type I fluids) also offer extended anti-icing holdover protection and can be used in a variety of ways:

    • Unheated and undiluted (or diluted) for anti-icing
    • Heated and undiluted for de-icing / anti-icing as a one step process
    • Diluted with water and heated for de-icing / anti-icing as a one step process
    • Diluted with water and heated as the de-icing stage in a two-step process, when used with the unheated and undiluted fluid

    Kilfrost offers two different Type II fluid options: ABC-3, which provides extended anti-icing holdover protection and ABC-K Plus, which offers extended hold especially in snow conditions.

  • Type IV De/Anti-Icing Fluids

    Type IV de/anti-icing fluids are manufactured and qualified to AMS 1428 / ISO 11078 specifications. Type IV fluids offer maximum anti-icing holdover protection, but can also be used for de-icing purposes.

    Similar to Type II fluids, Type IV fluids can be used in a variety of ways:

    • Unheated and undiluted (or diluted) for anti-icing
    • Heated and undiluted for de-icing / anti-icing as a one step process
    • Diluted with water and heated for de-icing / anti-icing as a one step process
    • Diluted with water and heated as the de-icing stage in a two-step process, when used with the unheated and undiluted fluid as step two.

    Kilfrost offers two different Type IV fluid options: ABC-S Plus, which provides maximum hold-over performance especially in snow conditions and ABC-4 Sustain, made from a Bio-PDO™ glycol base which comes from a renewable and sustainable raw material.
