CF7 LIQUID – REPLACE THE DEICER – NOT THE STRUCTURE

BENEFITS:

  • Low corrosion: contains no chlorides
  • Fast: liquid formulation works on contact
  • High performance: effective at -32o C (-25o F)
  • Easy to handle: clear liquid, no agitation required
  • Safe for the environment: non-persistent, biodegradable
  • Multi-purpose: anti-icing, deicing, and prewetting solids
  • Does not track like common deicers
  • Is not slippery like common deicers

PERFORMANCE:

  • Has low freezing points – 76o F (-60o C)
  • When used as an anti-icer – prevents adhesion of snow/ice to pavement
  • When used as a deicer – breaks snow/ice bonds prior to mechanical removal
  • Does not refreeze like common salts

APPLICATION:

  • Prewetting: apply at spreader outlet at a rate of 1.25 gallons per 100 lbs of solid deicer (130g/kg)
  • Deicing – Commercial = 1-3 gallons/1000 ft (25-50 g/m)
  • Deicing – Highway = 60-180 gallons/lane mile (50-150 g/m)
  • Anti-icing – Commercial = 0.5 gallons/1000 ft (25-50 g/m)
  • Anti-icing – Highway = 25-60 gallons/lane mile (25-50 g/m)
  • Re-apply when new snow/ice accumulation shows first tendency to bond
  • Plow promptly to reduce fluid dilution

ENVIRONMENT:

  • Readily biodegrades at low temperatures; has low BOD
  • Does not contain nitrogen, sodium or chlorides
  • Low toxicity to fish, mammals and vegetation

HANDLING:

  • CF7 should not be stored or plumbed through systems that use galvanized, zinc or brass components
  • Polyethylene containers are preferred, otherwise use carbon, low alloy or stainless steel
  • Containers must be clean and free of rust, surface deposits and residue
