Industry-specific applications

Dust suppressant

In summertime, dust problems can interfere with worksite worker safety and cause a nuisance for neighboring residents. In certain contexts, using a dust suppressant is a must.
  • Recommended product if you wish to spread it yourself: Xtra85, 85% concentration calcium chloride flakes

  • Recommended product for turnkey product spreading: Liquidow, 20%-35% concentration liquid calcium chloride


In winter, applying a de-icing agent to construction worksite grounds is important to avoid the risk of employee injury.

Truck carryback

In wintertime, cargo may cling to the bottom or sides of dump truck bodies. Caused by cold temperatures, the issue leads to a loss in productivity and the accumulation can snowball if nothing is done to remove it. Carryback can also make the truck body unstable and lead to serious accidents, even tipping.

Recommended product: Liquidow, 35% concentration liquid calcium chloride

Pile treatment

Keeping wintertime abrasives malleable and effective can be a challenge in cold temperatures. Somavrac C.C. offers antifreeze treatments for abrasive piles that coat each grain of abrasive or calcium chloride, which helps optimize your snow removal operations. Pile treatments are a cost-effective solution to reduce the amount of abrasives released into the environment.
