Area of use

IceBlast SF is environmentally safe, high performance anti-icing and de-icing solid for runways and taxiways. Additionally, it finds uses for other specialist de-icing applications e.g. road bridge de-icing.

Standard packaging

  • 25 kg plastic bags
  • 500 kg big bags.


Suggested application rates can be found in the table below. It is however important to take into consideration factors like surface material, surface structure, application method and current weather situation when using the product. The figure below is therefore only a guide for application and must not be regarded as recommended dosage. Chela will upon request give advice on application.
In the event of freezing rain, a preventive treatment of runways, ramps and taxiways is highly recommended. Applying Clearway~ 6s before the start of a light snow or ice event prevents frozen precipitation from accumulating. Since Clearway~ 6s is both an anti-icing agent as well as a deicer, timely application of Clearway~ 6s is essential to the continued use of operative surfaces.

Careful monitoring of meteorological conditions will keep you ahead of storm events and guide you in preventive application of the product.

Clearway~ 6s can be used with all known existing spraying equipment for solid deicers. To achieve maximum performance, Clearway~ 6s can be pre-wetted with 25- 50% w/w liquid Clearway deicer.
