TESTIMONIALS

 

Morristown Municipal Airport, New Jersey

 

“Potassium formate proved to be a comparable if not better choice than other products we have used, quickly dissolving the ice on our high traffic taxiways while consistently maintaining our braking action through the winter season,” said Peter Gilchrist, Manager, Operations and Security of the Morristown Airport.

 

Alpine RF-14F was used to pre-treat the runway resulting in good friction and braking action after plowing and brooming.  It performed well as a de-icer on our taxiway by completely breaking up the ice within 30 minutes in traffic areas and about 60 minutes in non-traffic areas.
