NFL’s Broncos to De-ice HQ with SynaTek’s Entry
Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

SOUDERTON, PA -- SynaTek Solutions, a manufacturer of ice-melt solutions, has announced that the NFL’s Denver Broncos football team has selected its Entry deicing and anti-icing fluid for use at the team’s headquarters at The UCHealth Training Center in Englewood, Colo.

The new deicing and anti-icing fluid is an eco-friendly, non-corrosive deicing alternative to traditional calcium, sodium and magnesium chloride granular products.

“When tracked into a facility, all chloride granular deicers leave a white residue that can dull the finish of floors and fade the color of carpets,” said Nate Clemmer, CEO and Managing Partner of SynaTek Solutions. “Calcium and magnesium chloride-based products coat floors with an oily, slippery residue that damages wax, and urethane finishes and poses a safety risk.”

Entry’s neutral pH formulation uses potassium formate, the salt of BASF’s Formic Acid technology, to eliminate tracking, reducing near-term labor costs associated with manual cleaning.

Granular chloride products are all hygroscopic, meaning they draw moisture from the atmosphere. They are harmful if swallowed by people or pets and will damage turf, ornamental plants and waterways. Potassium formate deicers are 100 percent chloride free and are readily biodegradable. They are safer for pets, plants, metals and concrete.

Potassium formate enables Entry to increase the speed of snow/ice melt to about 30 to 50 seconds by reducing the freezing point to approximately minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit. Entry is easy to apply and is a cost-effective deicing and anti-icing product. Most users will achieve a lower application cost per 1,000 sq. ft. with liquids than with granular deicers.

SynaTek Solutions markets Entry to snow professionals and facility managers through its Secure Winter Products brand and to consumers through Branch Creek. Headquartered in Souderton, Pennsylvania, SynaTek Solutions develops and manufactures products and technologies for the golf, landscape, agriculture and ice melt industries.

Entry was introduced in the United States in June 2017. For more information, go to http://securewinterproducts.com, https://chloridefree.com, or www.synateksolutions.com.
