Solutions NAAC® | Sodium Acetate (PDF)

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

COMPOSITION

  • Sodium acetate (NaAc)
  • 97% minimum by weight, anhydrous sodium acetate with less than 1% corrosion inhibitors
