Ecological De-Icing Agent
Ice & Dust-Away 25
Safe. Environmentally Sound. Certified.
Liquid ecological de-icing agent with the ecolabel "Nordic Swan".
Certified safety for the environment oriented user. The Nordic Ecolabel sets very high standards for the environmentally friendly properties of agents for ice and snow clearing.
Safety In Particular When Used For Preventive Treatments
Ice & Dust-Away 25 can be used at a temperature of up to -12 °C*.
When used for preventive treatments, it has a long-lasting efficacy of 2 to 3 days, depending on the weather conditions. When used for preventive purposes, the sticking of snow and ice to the pavement is reduced, and snow can be removed from the treated surfaces. The formation of ice sheets and of a close covering of snow diminishes.
* For a temperature up to -17 °C Ice & Dust Away-Plus is recommended.
Environmental Protection With Certificate
The "Nordic Ecolabel" sets high standards for agents for ice and snow clearing: Ice & Dust-Away 25 is free from conventional grit salt (NaCI) and other chlorides. It does not contain nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus that could possibly lead to an over-fertilization of waters and other pollutants.
It is biodegradable and ecotoxicologically harmless when used in the recommended doses.
The heavy metal levels are well below the limit values established by the ecolabel "Nordic Swan". Heavy metals are naturally present in very small quantities in the raw materials.
Ice & Dust-Away 25 does not contain any hazardous ingredients and is therefore not subject to labelling.
Low Corrosion - Even On Concrete
Ice & Dust-Away 25 is particularly recommended for use in areas with sensitive surfaces and materials. Due to its corrosive effects, grit salt (NaCI) cannot normally be used. Common metals and other materials show good resistance against Ice & Dust-Away 25.
Ice & Dust-Away 25 is also recommended for use on concrete.
What Should Be Considered?
When snow covers the ground, snow clearance should be carried out before using the product.
Advantages Of Liquid Melting Agents
When liquid de-icing agents are applied, the melting action can start immediately because the de-icing effect is only achieved in connection with moisture. It is possible to use liquid de-icing agents to cover large areas and to apply them evenly. In contrast to the use of granular de-icing agents, a punctual ice melting action is eliminated. The quantity of de-icing agent applied is significantly lowered.
De-icing agents in granules are often carried over into adjacent areas, liquid de-icing agents cling less to shoes and tyres, and contamination is therefore reduced.
It is also possible to use liquid de-icing agents for the treatment of areas where de-icing agents in granules can’t be employed such as on steeply sloping surfaces, gratings or machines and vehicles that have to be defrosted.
A TIP From RAW To Act In Compliance With The Law
Please observe local rules for winter maintenance, wastewater and/or road cleaning operations when using agents for ice and snow clearing such as granular gritting materials and de-icing agents.
