CRYOTECH BX36® 


Bio­Based Liquid Runway Deicer
AMS 1435 Certified


BENEFITS
 
Uses corn derived, DuPont Tate and Lyle Susterra® propanediol, combining sustainability with superior performance

Improves carbon brake compatibility by reducing catalytic oxidation (AIR 5567)

Reduces Corrosion of cadmium plated parts and electrical conductivity in the Airfield


PERFORMANCE


Excellent anti-icing characteristics (SHRP-H-332)
Effective to -20º F (-29º C)


ENVIRONMENT


Contains 75% bio-based content (ASTM 6866)
Notably reduces energy use and greenhouse gas emissions over traditional propylene glycol formulations
Readily biodegradable
Does not contain UREA
Recognized as "Relatively harmless" by U.S. Fish and Wildlife scale


APPLICATION


Prewetting - apply at spreader outlet at a rate of 1.25 gallons per 100 lbs (130g/kg) of solid deicer such as Cryotech NAAC®

Anti-icing:    0.5 gallons / 1000 ft (25 g/m )
Deicing:       1 gallon / 1000 ft  50 g/m  ) near 32º F (0º C) on 1 inch ice
Re-apply when new accumulation shows first tendency to bond
Plow and broom often to reduce fluid dilution


HANDLING


BX36 should not be stored or plumbed through systems that use galvanized, zinc, or brass components

Polyethylene or stainless steel containers are preferred, otherwise use carbon or low alloy steel

Best Practices include storing totes and drums in areas protected from weather and exposure to direct sunlight

Containers must be clean and free of rust, surface deposits, and residues
