LIQUIDOW liquid calcium chloride Deicer plays a key role in helping winter road crews meet the public`s demand for dry pavement. The practice of anti-icing involves the application of a very thin layer of calcium chloride prior to a predicted snow or ice storm. Liquid calcium chloride inhibits the bonding of snow and ice to the pavement, making it easier for snowplow crews to clear roads down to bare pavement.
According to Gary Dittmer, Engineer and Manager for the Mason County Road Commission in northwestern Lower Michigan, ``anti-icing allows us to get back to bare pavement faster and provide the higher level of service that the public is demanding.`` Besides helping to satisfy public demand for dry pavement right after it snows, anti-icing also results in significant manpower savings.
As a prewetting agent, LIQUIDOW helps salt work faster, at lower temperatures while minimizing application rates by reducing ``bounce and scatter.``
Liquid calcium chloride provides unmatched performance due to its ability to depress the freezing point of water, even when in very dilute concentrations. LIQUIDOW is also used in dust control, road base stabilization, concrete acceleration and tire weighting applications.
