Snow and Ice Control: Chemicals for Anti-icing and Deicing Mobile App
Deicing consists of applying chemicals to snow and ice to break their bond with the pavement.
How does it work?
If anti-icing strategies were not implemented before the storm, or if a storm “gets ahead” of anti-icing efforts, agencies may conduct deicing activities. Normally deicing is conducted when the temperature drops at the end of the storm activities and the snow/ice has bonded to the pavement. Deicing chemicals work by lowering the freezing point of water. As the snow/ ice turns to water, the deicing chemicals will become diluted and may need to be reapplied. Use the Snow and Ice Control: Chemicals for Anti-icing and Deicing mobile app to safety and properly perform anti-icing and deicing snow removal.
