TESTIMONIALS

 

Roanoke Regional Airport Commission, Virginia

 

We applied the solids once the ice pellets started, followed up by the PA. This all happened during a shift change and the ice had a just a little jump start on us. After application of both chemicals we were able to let the product sit and do its job. After a few hours we reapplied another round of chemicals due to the continuing icing conditions, we let those sit for about 2 hours and attacked the runway just prior to launching flights in the morning.  The chemicals allowed us to basically remove the ice with very minimal surface bonding issues. Having the time to allow the chemical to work proved to be the key. Both products worked great!
