Kilfrost joins Eastman on de-icing for UK and Irish airports

Posted 3 July 2017 · Add Comment

Kilfrost has secured an alliance with Eastman that gives UK and Irish airports a one-stop solution to winter icing protection.



The distribution deal between Kilfrost Ltd and Eastman will see Kilfrost offering the Clearway runway de-icing solutions alongside the company’s aircraft de-icing solutions.

The range of liquid and solid, fast-acting runway de-icing products from Eastman, complements Kilfrost’s  products, which offer comprehensive, safety critical, frost and ice protection.

Eastman is a global speciality chemical company established in runway, taxiway and apron de-icing at airports worldwide.

Steven Ellis, Senior Sales Manager at Kilfrost, said: “The alliance with Eastman makes perfect sense in offering our customers, a one-stop solution for their frost protection needs.

“By joining together in this way, we can offer greater expertise and reliability, while at the same time maintaining our high standards of technical competence and operational excellence.”

The Clearway products offer excellent biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity with the Clearway® F1 and Clearway® 1 liquid products boasting superior spray capability, while the Clearway® SF3 and 6s solid products can be applied pre-wetted for rapid de-icing or alone for lasting residual anti-icing.

“We are excited about the alliance between Eastman and Kilfrost” said Colin Ashton, Global Sales Director, Care Chemicals at Eastman. “Both companies are well known and experienced players in the industry. Together we are able to offer our customers in the UK and Ireland an optimised service and security of supply.”

Kilfrost is recognised as the global leader in safety critical frost and ice protection chemistry and rheology.

Last month the company announced it had invested in a second manufacturing facility in Antwerp, bringing robustness of supply and winter resilience to the European airline industry.

Working across the industrial and aviation sectors, Kilfrost maintains a proud focus on pioneering the next generation of products to raise industry standards, and to meet the growing needs of its commercial clients and the wider community.
