Direct Application Systems
Anti-Icing is a proactive measure. Liquid solution is applied to a road before a snow and ice event to prevent the hard bond of snow and ice to the surface. Anti-icing operations work up from the road surface. It requires smaller amounts of deicing material, reducing product and application costs while limiting runoff to the environment. Use our anti-icing application rate calculator tool to calculate your customized application rate. Whereas, De-Icing is a reactive measure. Liquid solution is applied to a road during a snow and ice event to remove the hard bond of snow/ice to the surface. De-icing works from the top of the snow pack down to the roadway surface.
