Ice Melters with Calcium Magnesium Acetate

A Longer Lasting, Environmentally Friendly, Anti-Corrosion Formula

What is Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA)?

Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA) is an environmentally benign de-icer. It was developed to resolve the concern for damage to the environment and metal corrosion caused by the use of chloride de-icers.

ln the 1970’s, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) identified Calcium Magnesium Acetate as the only low-corrosion chemical alternative to road salt that also protected the environment.

Years of research and field applications have proven CMA is no more corrosive than tap water and does not harm vegetation or receiving waters.

Does CMA Affect The Environment?

When absorbed into the soil, CMA’s calcium magnesium components benefit the soil structure; just as liming a garden improves permeability. The acetate portion of CMA biodegrades naturally.

Does CMA Cause Corrosion on Roads, Bridges, Parking Garages, etc.?

No significant corrosion of steel, aluminum, or concrete has been found in repeated tests with CMA sponsored by the FHWA, state Departments of Transportation, and private researchers.
