This Technical Specification defines general specifications and performance criteria of other solid and liquid de-icing agents than chlorides of sodium, calcium and magnesium, hereinafter referred to products, for the use in winter service on roads and on roads for specific uses, with the exception of runways and parking areas of aircrafts. It establishes the test methods to control them. The products include inorganic and organic de-icing agents, and mixtures of chlorides of sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium with organic and inorganic components which are intended for special properties like inhibition of corrosion, enhanced melting capacity or improved spreading pattern.
NOTE This Technical Specification defines specifications and performance criteria and offers for each a variation in the form of classes of requirements. This does not mean that there are products likely to respond to all the classes and criteria of the standard. Therefore, when defining the demand the user needs to make sure prior the appropriateness of his choice and the availability of suitable products.
