What is It
Anti-icing is the application of liquid brine (salt water solution) to surfaces before a winter storm hits. This proactive approach focuses on combating ice before it has the chance to stick. Properly applied, liquid brine prevents ice from bonding to surfaces and lowers the temperature at which water freezes.
Liquide brine for anti-icing is used by anyone who needs to keep surfaces free from ice such as transportation agencies, municipalities, property management companies, contractors, retirement communities, schools and businesses just to name a few.
Where to Use
On surfaces such as roadways, walkways, sidewalks and parking lots that need to be kept safe and ice-free.
When to Use
Watch the forecast regularly, as weather conditions change, and apply before the storm starts.
Why it’s Popular
