Calcium Magnesium Acetates Solid Commercial Deicer
Works best above 20°F (-7°C).
Has long lasting effect - better than salt or urea.
Breaks/inhibits bond between snow/ice and pavement.
Creates a dry, powdery snow which improves traction.
|Calcium : Magnesium Molar Ratio||3.5:6.5|
|Water Insoluble Material||3.80%|
|Appearance||Light Yellow Spherical Granule|
|Size Of Granule||1.2-4.5mm|
|PH(10% Aqueous Solution 20°C)||9.0|
Low corrosion: less corrosive than tap water.
Safe for concrete: the safest deicer for concrete.
Excellent inhibitor: reduces chloride corrosion.
Safe for the environment: biodegradable, low toxicity.
Residual effect: requires fewer applications.
Multi-purpose: use straight, with salt, with sand, or as a liquid.
Application: Apply early in the storm to prevent snow/ice bonding.
First application: Commercial = 15-20 lbs./1000 ft2(75-100 g/m2).
Highway = 300-400 lbs./lane mile (20-40 g/m2).
Wait at least 20 minutes to remove snow/ice.
Re-apply when new snow/ice accumulation shows first tendency to pack (bond).
Biodegrades to CO2and H2O
Calcium and magnesium increase soil permeability
Essentially non-toxic to aquatic species
Poor mobility in soil - unlikely to reach groundwater
Safe for vegetation
Does not contain nitrogen, sodium, or chlorides
May be stored indefinitely if kept dry
Take care to avoid caking caused by excess moisture
Excessive handling may cause dustiness
