De-Icing

Road De-icing and Ice Melters from Innovative

At Innovative Surface Solutions, we will supply you with the best means for fighting the "snow & ice" battle. How best to do that depends on the following:

  • What type of storm event you are facing:
    • Snow
    • Ice
    • Black Ice
    • Slush, Rain
  • How long has it been snowing or how long will it last?
  • What is the normal pavement temperature?
  • What would be the best product for the conditions? Solid or liquid de-icers? Both?
  • What should the application rates be?
  • Are safety and liability a major factor?
  • Do you require added traction control?
  • Is corrosion of the roadways or bridge decks an issue?
  • What environmental concerns are important to you?
    • EPA designation?
    • PNS certification?

Whether you are a municipality, commercial or property management, contractor or home owner, your requirements will change depending on the prevailing winter driving conditions.

Liquid De-Icers

Liquid de-icing involves either a pro-active application or re-active placement of a liquid ice melting agent on the pavement surface prior to the accumulation of frozen precipitation, or to an already existing ice or hard pack snow surface. When applied in a stream pattern, performance enhancing liquids vertically penetrate the snowpack and break the bond at the road surface.

Enhanced Liquid De-Icers

The proactive application of enhanced solutions such as freeze point depressing liquids eliminates the bond between snow / ice and surface. Using liquid to "pre-wet" conventional solid de-icers reduces bounce and scatter, and environmental emissions while increasing performance and service levels.

Bulk Granular Deicers

High performance solid de-icers including complex chloride blends and liquid enhanced pre-treated salts. These high-end products provide reduced application rates / waste, increased melting speed and capacity, while facilitating the use of common de-icers at lower temperatures.

As a pre-wetting agent for salt and sand, chlorides enhanced with liquids reduce bounce and scatter, increase the speed at which the salt begins working, increase the melting performance of the salt, and facilitate the use of salt at lower temperatures.

Packaged Granular Deicers

Innovative Surface Solutions boasts the most complete line of packaged de-icers in the industry. Our valued added products include industry leaders like magnesium and calcium chlorides that provide longer melting performance at colder temperatures. Also available are treated salts that are enhanced with viscosity modifiers and are PNS or EPA certified to straight rock salt.
