De-Icing Solution

In our testing of various solutions to use for de-icing (after plowing), salt brine was by far the most cost effective and produced the desired result of getting the parking lot down to water.  We have been told that salt brine only works when the temperature is above 20 degrees F.  Not true.  We used it last Winter with temperatures in the single digits and when it was that cold, it out performed regular rock salt. (remember - rock salt must go into solution to melt anything, you will be using something that it ready to melt out of the boom - it does not have to wait for additional moisture to activate).  Our salt brine is made in single batches so that we can produce the optimum saturation point of salt to water (the eutectic point).  This lowers the freezing point to -6 degrees F.

Our premium salt brine is sold by the gallon and is available 24 Hrs/7days per week during inclement weather at our site conveniently located at 10 Mile and Grand River Ave. in Farmington Hills, Michigan.  Delivery is also available with a 1000 gallon minimum purchase.

Salt Brine:  $ 0.35 per gallon


Anti-Icing Solution

We tested several variations of Anti-Icing products and found that a solution of "GeoMelt" (Beet Juice) and salt brine produced the best results.  As stated prior, with the 10+ inch storm last year that lasted almost 24 hrs. we had to plow the same lots multiple times to keep them clear and open for the clients.  We pre-treated the lots 3 days prior to the event and even after the 3rd push on the same lot, nothing had bonded to the pavement.  I would not have believed it if I didn't experience it for myself.  Our anti-icing solution is sold by the gallon and is a mixture of 20% "GeoMelt" and 80% premium salt brine.  This lowers the freezing point to -20 degrees F.

The anti-icing solution is sold by the gallon and is available 24 Hrs/7days per week during inclement weather at our site conveniently located at 10 Mile and Grand River Ave. in Farmington Hills, Michigan.  Delivery is also available with a 1000 gallon minimum purchase.

Anti-Icing Solution: $ 0.85 per gallon
