Davies SAFE-MELT - liquid represents all of the best technology in runway deicing. SAFE-MELT - liquid features fast ice melting action, even at very low temperatures (-20° F). This product is a non-corrosive, safe on the environment, and complies with ASME 1435 and FAA specs. SAFE-MELT - liquid contains no glycol, therefore is less slippery than glycol based runway deicers. This product is ideal to keep runways and taxiways clean and safe without harming the environment. SAFE-MELT - liquid is highly effective as both a deicer, as well as anti-icing compound. Additional environment properties of concern are, SAFE-MELT - liquid has a safer, lower Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) than urea based runway deicers, and biodegrades at both warmer and lower temperatures.
Storm-water pollution and attention is receiving ever-increasing focus. With its low BOD and ability to biodegrade at lower temperatures, SAFE-MELT - liquid use helps meet storm-water runoff pollution limits. The EPA has recently suggested to airports to evaluate this new generation of runway deicers in place of glycols and urea.
