Ice Control

Anti-Icing

Anti-icing is the process of applying a layer of OxyChem Liquidow™ calcium chloride on hard road surfaces before an ice or snow storm.  Applying Liquidow™ calcium chloride to the road before a storm helps prevent ice and snow from bonding 

  • Anti-icing is a proactive approach to fighting ice and snow and can typically be applied up to 24 hours before the start of inclement weather.
  • Anti-icing can also reduce or eliminate the need for applying granular material that may be required for improved traction.

Deicing

Deicing or pre-wetting involves blending calcium chloride with with granular materials such as cinder chips, rock salt or sand.  Pre-wetting with calcium chloride reduces bounce and scatter of granular materials while improving traction in treated areas.
