Aircraft interiors are cleaned more frequently and more thoroughly than ever before as the COVID-19 pandemic has placed an increased focus on passenger health. These aircraft interiors are composed of expensive materials and are expected to have a very long service life. Thus, it is imperative to demonstrate that the cleaners and disinfectants do not damage the aircraft interiors.
SAE AMS1452 and AMS1453 detail the quality requirements for aircraft disinfectants in both concentrated and diluted forms for use with a variety of aircraft interior surfaces, including lavatories, galleys, passenger service trays, drop-down tables, and food-contacting surfaces. To meet these requirements, disinfectants must undergo testing for flash point, storage stability, and undesirable effects on metal, rubber, plastic, and other surfaces.
The following is a list of tests in Specification SAE AMS1452 & SAE AMS1453 that require test specimens. Some of these tests may be customized for this specification. Click on the test method number for more information about specimens required for each test.
