    Ive been doing a little research on sodium formate, and was wondering if any of you guys used it and how was your price point on it. The reason why i would be using sodium formate is because of taking care of Airside at some airports.
    I have been looking into the
    Safeway SF solid deicer

    Thanks in advance

    Where abouts are you located? I have a 55 gallon drum of Potassium Acetate that would work perfect and I'd love to get rid of it.

    Like Dave said, where are you located?

    We've been using it for years. Unfortunately we were undercut on our portion of the airport this year and lost the work. I got a few pallets of Peak SF I'd like to get rid of. Been stored inside and it's in great shape.

    I'll double check (hands cupped in front of belly button, moving to the sides) the pricing, but it was around the low 50's per 55lb bag. I'd love to get it off my inventory sheet.

    Good question. I guess you'll need to contact the manufacturer aboot this.

    Was hoping you might be somewhere close to us like Sarnia or Windsor. Calgary is pretty far away from where we are.

    Shoot me a PM and we can go over pricing for Sodium formate delivered to you.

    Certain SF brands are certified for use on runways, tarmacs, apron, and hanger. It is a very non-corrosive ice melter which gets tested to ensure it will not effect the airplanes in any negative way. Same for Potassium Acetate, but you need to make sure the brand is certified as not all of them are.
