Industry-specific applications

Dust suppressant

During the summer, the hygroscopic properties of calcium chloride draw moisture from the air to trap it at ground level and prevent dust from rising behind passing vehicles. Two options are available: municipal operators can apply flakes, or liquid application can be provided as a turnkey spreading service.
  • Recommended product: Xtra85 (flakes)
  • Recommended product: Liquidow (liquid)

De-icer

Does your snow removal plan consider stairways, parking areas, sidewalks, parks, bridges, and overpasses? As places where the risk of falling and incidents is high, it is important to pay close attention to the products and methods used in de-icing these areas.

  • Product recommended for its ground adhesion: Bleu Fuzion
  • Product recommended for its instant melting power: Peladow

Liquid abrasive treatment

Spraying your road salt and abrasives (sand) with a calcium-chloride-based product is vital to effectively fight against ice and snow. The difference is indisputable: salt or granular materials that have been pretreated with calcium chloride are more effective than dry materials, as calcium chloride accelerates the melting process and reduces the amount of product required.

Recommended product: Xtragrip
