Sustainable Purchasing Resources: De-Icers


LET US KNOW IF YOU'D LIKE TO ATTEND A SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL WORKSHOP TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WMPSC PRODUCTS AND BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES. PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO PLEVIN@DELTA-INSTITUTE.ORG WITH THE SUBJECT SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL WORKSHOP.

WMSPC vendors

WMSPC has awarded two vendors with Master Services Agreements for environmentally preferable granular deicing products.

Currently, all orders are priced for delivery direct from the vendors to WMSPC members. Because there may be smaller-volume purchasers that wish to take advantage of these environmentally preferable products, WMSPC is working with the vendors to find local re-sellers and distribution points.

ATTN: Small volume purchasers. So that we can gauge interest and aggregate potential small purchases, please email plevin@delta-institute.org if you are interested in procuring less than a pallet of these products. (Bags are 50 lbs each, and a pallet contains 48 bags.)

  • WELLSPRING MANAGEMENT

    Wellspring Management's EcoSalt, ICE-AX, and GeoSalt are sodium chloride products blended with GEOMELT 55 -- a sugar beet-based accelerator that improves the melting capabilities of salt, and thereby results in an overall salt usage reduction of 20-30%. These products can be applied at 60-70% the rate of untreated rock salt. 1 ton of sodium chloride is treated with 5-7 gallons of GEOMELT.

    EcoSalt: Use on sidewalks, boulevard and high traffic pedestrian areas. Pellet size passes through 2.36-4.75mm sieve with fines removed. [EcoSalt MSDS]

    ICE-AX: Use on parking lots, driveways, street surfaces and other low traffic pedestrian areas. Pellet size passes through 9.5-12.5mm sieve with fines removed. [ICE-AX MSDS]

    GeoSalt: Use on parking lots, driveways, street surfaces and other low traffic pedestrian areas. Pellet size passes through 12.5-19.0mm sieve per ASTM 632 specifications. [GeoSalt MSDS]

    For more information, view the fact sheet and MSDS for GEOMELT 55 de-icing fluid, which is blended with granular salt or salt brine to enhance performance.

  • CRYOTECH

    Cryotech's CMA (Calcium Magnesium Acetate) is a chloride-free product used in large part to reduce the corrosive effects of chlorides on bridges, parking decks, and other capital-intensive infrastructure, as well as the 'burning' effects of chlorides on vegetation.

    Typical CMA customers are concerned with concrete spalling, corrosion or environmental issues. They include transportation agencies, military installations, universities, property management firms, and commercial facilities. They require the performance of a solid deicer without the risk of negative environmental impact or infrastructure damage generally associated with chlorides and urea. For these reasons, CMA is often specified by design engineers for use on bridge decks, parking garages and sidewalks, and by operation managers to solve environmental problems such as ground water contamination, soil compaction and vegetation burn.

    For more information, view the Fact Sheet, MSDS and FAQ.
