Airport Runway & Concrete Deicer Anti icing Snow melting or Thawing Sodium Formate Granules Manufacturers
De-icing is defined as removal of existing, snow ice, frost, etc., from a surface. It includes both mechanical (plowing or scraping) or chemical (application of salt or other ice melting chemicals) methods.
Anti-icing is defined as the pretreatment of a roadway, sidewalk or parking lot with ice melting chemicals before a storm, to prevent or delay the formation of ice, or the adhesion of ice and snow.
For Anti icing in airports Potassium Acetate Solution is generally sprayed on the surface. Deicing is done by Sodium Acetate Granular Xtra TM Sodium Acetate Deicer or Anti-ice or Snow melting Snow thawing agent is made of organic salts for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway. Snow Thawing Agent for Airport is researched and approved environment-friendly snow-melting agent for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway in very short time. It is in accordance with standard of AMS1431D.
Xxtra TM Sodium acetate Snow-Melting, is researched and developed as one new kind of environment-friendly snow-melting agent for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway in very short time.
Xxtra TM Sodium Formate is alternate to Sodium Acetate.
Sodium Formate is an environment friendly snow melting chemical for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway in very short time. It has very low corrosion values which are brought down further with added corrosion inhibitors. It meets the requirements of AMS 1435A. It is in accordance with standard of AMS1431D. It has a low biological oxygen demand. Ramp and runway deicers should be certified to airport approved specifications. SAE-AMS1431, "COMPOUND, SOLID DEICING/ANTI-ICING RUNAWAYS AND TAXIWAYS", was adopted on 23-JAN-95 for use by the Department of Defense (DoD). It Specifies BOD, TOD, biodegradation, Aquatic Toxicity Trace Contaminants Appearance, pH, Flash Point, Chloride Content, Storage Stability, Effect on Aircraft Metals, Airport Runway Concrete Scaling Resistance etc. Sodium Formate fits these specifications. It does not harm plant and aquatic life. It has a very negligible effect on aquatic life. It is in accordance with the regulations of (Standard Method for Examination of Water and Wastewater) from USA.

Xtra Sodium Formate may be used both as an anti iceing and as deicer. Xtra Sodium Formate is required to be spread at the rate of around 25gm/sq.m or 0.5lb/100 sq .ft for ice at freezing point 0C or 32F. It is advisable to apply it as an anti iceing or deicer just before the storm. This will prevent the ice bonds from.
You will need to apply again when new accumulation shows first tendency to bond and plow once bond is broken. It will save a lot of labor if we apply Deicer and plowgh away before the ice bond is formed.
Storage & Handling
Sodium Formate must be stored in leak proof bags. Check for the condition of the bags on receipt and do provide a double cover to a torn bag. Avoid exposure to moisture and heat.
Sodium Formate has a tendency to loosely stick to one another during storage. If the material in the bags is lumpy, then lift the bag and drop it a couple of times to loosen it. Sodium Formate is not an environmental issue and it can be used for deicing anti-icing, even if it is exposed to moisture and caked.
Sodium Formate is offered in 25kg (55 lbs) or 50kg (110 lbs) bags or Jumbo bags or as desired by the buyer.
Sodium Formate Solution 50% is offered in 210 liter or 55 gallons drums or in 1000 liter 265 gallons tote.
