Company Profile

  • Runway Deicing Fluid

    GEN 3

    A high performance runway deicing fluid that offers longer protection time against snow and ice-build than traditional potassium salt deicers, keeping runways open for longer, reducing chemical usage and lowering deicing costs.

    GEN3 significantly reduces the high costs of corrosion to GSE and aircraft carbon brakes. Qualified to the latest AMS 1435 specification.

    Airports Save

    • Enhanced holdover: Runways open longer • Fewer delays and cancellations • Fewer Trucks.
    • Faster melting of ice and snow:  Lower application rates • Ice residues dissolve quickly • Friction values rise quickly • Runways open quicker.
    • Exceptional friction values: Keeps runways open longer • Increases aircraft safety
    • No corrosion on GSE equipment: Saves rust protected galvanised steel • Reduces maintenance costs.
    • Low electrical conductivity: No more shorts on GPU plugs • Reduces corrosion to GSE and aircraft.

    Airlines Save

    • Carbon brake friendly: Solves airline concerns • Reduces maintenance costs • Extends life of carbon brake assemblies • Increases aircraft safety.
    • Friendly to aircraft: Does not corrode cable seals • Does not corrode cadmium plate • Reduces maintenance and replacement costs.
    • Lower airport costs:  Runways open faster and longer • Lower GSE maintenance costs • Savings for both airports and airlines.
  • Type 1 Aircraft Deicing

    Product Description
    LNT Solutions range of Type I Aircraft De-icing Fluids (ADF), LNT P180, LNT E188 and LNT P188 are designed and qualified to AMS 1424 and ISO 1175, and exceed the demanding local environmental regulatory requirements.

    Readily bio-degradable, an enhanced low foaming surfactant and dye package gives excellent surface wetting and allows easy identification on treated surfaces. Formulated specifically for geographical point of use, both Propylene Glycol and Ethylene based fluids are available, and compatible with existing application equipment.

    Type I Products:

    • LNT P180 – 80% Propylene Glycol based Type I ADF
    • LNT P188 – 88% Propylene Glycol based Type I ADF
    • LNT E188 – 88% Ethylene Glycol based Type I ADF
  • Type II & IV Aircraft Deicing

    Product Description
    LNT Solutions has recently added LNT E450 Type IV De/Anti Icing Fluid to complement their current range of Type I Aircraft De-icing Fluids (ADF), LNT P180, LNT E188 and LNT P188.

    Qualified to AMS 1428, LNT E450 is readily bio-degradable, and is formulated with an enhanced low foaming surfactant and dye package, that gives excellent surface wetting and allows easy identification on treated surfaces, as well as exceeding the demanding local environmental regulatory requirements.

    LNT E450 has been formulated specifically for the North American market and are fully compatible with the current application techniques and equipment.

    Environment
    LNT E450 has been formulated specifically for the North American market and are fully compatible with the current application techniques and equipment..

    Recent environment demands are encouraging our customers to invest in and use recover, recycle and reuse (RRR) technology, allowing the use of recovered glycols to be processed back to EG market specifications. LNT E450 was designed with RRR facilities in mind.

    Type II / IV Products:

    • LNT E450 – Ethylene Glycol based Type IV
    • LNT P250 – Propylene Glycol based Type II
  • Recycling Aviation Fluids

    Recent environmental demands are encouraging our customers to invest in and use recycling technology, allowing the use of recovered glycol to blend fluids locally.

    LNT Solutions is in the vanguard of advances in recycling technology and is assisting in some of the world’s biggest and boldest projects to recover recycle and reconstitute aircraft deicing fluids back into usable Type I fluids.

    All LNT Type I ADF fluids are capable of using recycled glycol, on condition this meets our stringent specifications. A single LNT Solutions pack additive, used together with our mixing plant design, ensures trouble free on-site fluid manufacture.
