In extreme wintry conditions, airport operators and aircraft owners face the difficult task of both guaranteeing the safety of winter flight operations as well as ensuring that the environmental impacts of aircraft and airfield deicing materials are minimised.

This involves removing ice and snow from the surfaces of aircraft before take-off.
Runways as well as other airfield surfaces such as taxiways and aprons must also be free from ice and snow.

ULTRABLUE Aviation Chemicals offers aircraft deicing and icing protection fluids for use on the ground and in flight (TKS deicing systems), as well as surface deicers in granulate and fluid forms. The range is rounded out by antifreeze fluids for water-bearing systems such as drinking water and freshwater systems and toilet systems.

All products have been developed in accordance with international requirements and are highly environmental sustainable. These special formulations ensure that corrosion of the materials used in aircraft production is reduced to a minimum.


TKS is a chemical icing protection system for aircraft, which is used in the air (in flight).

When needed, a glycol-based deicer is released by means of a pump from a separate tank through laser-drilled, porous titanium plates on the leading edge of the wings (weeping wings), as well as on the horizontal and vertical stabilisers. In addition, the TKS deicer can be evenly distributed across the affected surfaces by a slinger ring on the propeller and a spray rod on the windscreen.

Our TKS deicers UltraBlue TKS and Ultrablue TKS AF (without alcohol) are used as freezing point depression agents with a freezing point below (-60°C). The fluid spreads across the protected surfaces and keeps the aircraft practically free for ice. Suitable for preventing the formation of ice (anti-icing), as well as for the removal of existing ice (de-icing).

Suitable for aircraft equipped with TKS equipment, e.g. Diamond aircraft, Cirrus, Beechcraft, Cessna, Piper, Mooney, Kodiak, Hawker, and many more.


Snow and ice increase the weight of the aircraft and have an unfavourable impact on its aerodynamics. This makes deicing on the ground a necessity for safety reasons.

Our propylene glycol-based UltraBlue Type 1 aircraft deicer removes existing or forming ice buildup, snow, and frost from the aircraft before take-off.

UltraBlue Type 4 deicer has been formulated to preemptively prevent the formation of ice, in order to clean aircraft during freezing rain and protect them from frost conditions, if they have been forecast.

Both products can be used with no problems in existing systems, have outstanding coating properties, and are economical and can be used sparingly and economically.


Deicer for runways, taxiways, and aprons is used in a similar context to aircraft deicer.

The substances melt the ice by mixing with the water and lowering the freezing point as far as −60°C.

Since the beginning of the 90s, use of manoeuvring area deicers based on acetates (salt of acetic acid) as well as formates (salts of formic acid) have been recommended, as they are more environmentally sustainable than deicing agents such as glycols or urea.

Contrary to conventional deicing salt (NaCl), acetates and formates and biodegradable.

We offer surface deicers in granulate (UltraBlue KA, UltraBlue KF) and fluid forms (UltraBlue KA 50, UltraBlue KF 50) based on calcium acetate and calcium formate.


In temperatures below freezing, particular protective measures are needed for water-bearing systems susceptible to frost, as these systems freeze and become damaged at temperatures under 0 °C, if they still have water in them.
UltraBlue F and UltraBlue L antifreeze concentrates protect your freshwater and drinking water systems or toilet systems on board from frost damage, corrosion, deposits, or sludge accumulation. These fluids exhibit longterm resistance to the formation of biofilms, rot, and microbiological decomposition, and are largely flavourless, colourless, and odourless. All of the substances contained in UltraBlue F are approved as food additives (EU/USA), and have very low levels of oral toxicity.
