Introducing NAAC®40 Solid Deicer

Introducing NAAC®40 Solid Deicer

FORT MADISON, IA - Cryotech Deicing Technology extends its comprehensive pavement deicing product portfolio with NAAC®40, NAAC40 is a sodium acetate and sodium chloride blended product with high performance, minimal environmental impact and is competitively priced.

The combination of rock salt and NAAC®, Cryotech’s premium solid pavement deicer, is ideal for areas with chloride limits, decreasing the chloride load in storm water by 40% over rock salt alone. With low BOD/COD and low toxicity to fish and mammals, NAAC40 is an environmentally friendly and high performing alternative to conventional salts.

NAAC40 starts fast and provides long holdover, successfully breaking and inhibiting the bond between snow and ice and the pavement. These attributes allow for fewer applications than other common deicers, benefiting the environment and budgets. NAAC40 works to lower temperatures and is an effective ice melter down to a practical use temperature of approximately 10°F (-12°C), whereas sodium chloride alone works to approximately 20°F (-7°C).

NAAC is industry-leading for its low effective temperature, exothermic properties, and uniform shape and size that allow the pellet to penetrate directly to the pavement surface.

“Customer service and environmental stewardship are two of our core values. Creating a product that serves customers’ needs as well as minimizing impact on the environment makes NAAC40 a great addition to our product line” said Craig Starwalt, President and CEO of Cryotech Deicing Technology. “We recognized the trend of chloride limits being tightened. Premium NAAC combined with rock salt is an ideal solution for those concerned with chloride reduction and costs.”

NAAC40 will be available for purchase in late November for the 2019-2020 deicing season. Contact Cryotech with any questions, 800-346-7237.
