Potassium acetate is a liquid deicer that contains no chlorides. It is less harmful to structural steel and reinforcing steel embedded in concrete. It readily biodegrades and has little environmental impact. Potassium acetate is effective to -15 degrees. It is a clear liquid and requires no agitation, and it has a residual effect, requiring fewer applications.
