Dry Acetates

APPROVED FOR USE AT AIRPORTS AND COMMERCIAL FACILITIES
SPEC: SOLUTIONS NAAC®: Sodium Acetate Solid Runway Deicer

BENEFITS

Safe for runways: meets FAA approved specifications
Exothermic: gives off heat as it dissolves, melting ice faster than common deicers
Faster and better: works fast like calcium chloride, without chloride-induced corrosion
Staying power: works longer, requiring fewer applications
Easy to apply: applied with the same equipment as urea
Safe for the environment: non-persistent, biodegradable
Manufactured from pure materials, NAAC does not track like common deicers

PERFORMANCE

Contains no chlorides
Excellent melting properties
Works faster than urea and sodium chloride
Is active at lower temperatures – 0°F (-18°C)
Requires less material to achieve similar effectiveness

APPLICATION

Deicing – apply in uniform pattern:
Near 32°F (0°C) on thin ice = 3-5 lbs./1000ft2 (15-25 g/m2)
Less than 10°F (-12°C) on 1 inch (2.5 cm) ice = 10-25 lbs./1000 ft2 (50-75 g/m2)
Re-apply when new accumulation shows first tendency to bond
Plow once bond is broken
Prewetting – airports may apply potassium acetate to NAAC at spreader outlet at a rate of 10% by weight

ENVIRONMENT

Lower BOD than urea
Biodegrades at low temperatures
Low toxicity to fish and mammals

HANDLING

Store in original container
Avoid excessive moisture which may cause caking
Excessive handling may cause dustiness
