Commonly known as TKS™ Fluid – Kilfrost put the ‘K’ in TKS™
DTD 406B TKS Deicing Anti-Icing Fluid – 55 Gallon Drum
DTD 406B aircraft in-flight ice protection fluid protects YOU and YOUR plane from in-flight freezing by distributing ice protection fluids through porous metal structures that form the leading edge of the wings and rear horizontal and vertical stabilizers. Designed for use according to (POH) in TKS™ ice protection systems or “weeping wings”, the TKS deicing fluid meets DTD-406B standards and is made from an ethylene glycol based formula that effectively removes ice from engine inlet, cowl, flight controls, antennas, wing, tail, propeller, rudder, windshield and everything in the propwash area and behind the weeping panels. It is also recommended for removing hoar frost, light snow/ice and frozen deposits from parked aircrafts. Available in small (2.5 or 5-gal) and big (55 and 275 gal packaging) and ships same day, year round!

Many aircraft OEM’s have switched to TKS™ deicing system from the de-icer boot system. Approved installation companies include: Aerospace Systems and Technologies (AS&T), CAV Aerospace Inc. (CAV) and Flight Ice Inc. DTD 406B anti-icer is compatible with all TKS™ systems and the following aircrafts have certified TKS™ ice protection systems with years of proven results applying DTD 406B deicing fluid:
|Cessna||De Havilland||Mooney||Raytheon Aircraft Corp|
|Cirrus Design SR22||Diamond||Pilatus||Socata Trinidad|
TKS™ de-ice systems are more popular than ever, but finding refills for your airplane’s TKS™ system has become surprisingly challenging. While available from a few online resellers, some FBOs (mostly at larger airports) and service centers, why pay retail prices or wait for product delivery? Save time and money by buying direct from the manufacturer without any middlemen (or women).
We promise no hassles, ever:
- Backorder? We maintain over 1,100 gallons in stock at all times
- Excessive minimum order quantities? We ship as little as 2.5 gallons without a surcharge
- Long delivery time? We ship same day anywhere in continental US to arrive within 1-3 business days. *
* Due to DOT regulations, ground shipping only is available.
- Every batch is quality control measured for viscosity, freezing point, and pH value.
- Our deicing fluid is filtered down to 0.5 micron prior to packaging to prevent debris blocking the laser drilled titanium leading edges.
