Idaho Deicing and Anti-Icing
Winter road safety in Idaho for travelers and residents is a top priority for city, county, tribal and state Departments of Transportation. From I-15 to I-84 to Idaho 93 to 12 – travel in winter has the possibility to get challenging. And all roads are affected, from state highways and county roads, to interstate freeways, and city streets. How are the roads and streets, highway, or public works departments ensuring that travel is as safe as possible? Idaho deicing, anti-icing, and ice melting procedures impact both local commutes and travelers. Are you ready?
Icy, remote roads and big snowfalls are a way of life in Boise, Pocatello, and Idaho Falls, Idaho – the whole state in fact. Every area and snowfall requires a road department plan to minimize the buildup of snow and ice BEFORE it happens. When the plan is to enhance the effectiveness of salt or sand treatments, or prevent bridges from icing up, they are a step ahead of the game. Desert Mountain Corporation has the granular and liquid solutions to meet the needs of the icy winter environment in Idaho. We’ve laboratory tested and field proven our treatments for Idaho deicing and anti-icing solutions include:
Ice Slicer is an environmentally friendly, low-corrosive, granular de-icing product. It is used to break the bond of snow and ice from Idaho roadways, walkways, driveways, and parking lots. The unique natural blend of Ice Slicer’s chlorides is mined in Redmond, Utah. Its unique chemical compound melts ice and snow effectively to 0° F, resulting in safer roads at lower temperatures. With its distinctive natural dark red color that is free of dyes and full of 60+ natural minerals, the areas treated are clearly marked, letting the public know a road has been treated. Available for purchase in both bagged – 1 ton super sacks – and in bulk truckload quantities – call Lynn James at 307-856-9730 for more information.

By treating large or small aggregate, sand or salt stockpiles with SOS, winter road departments will increase the performance of salt or gravel applications. Which equals saving money for the Idaho road department in total winter road treatment costs. An application of SOS reduces leeching and requires a smaller amount of sand or salt to be spread due to less bounce and scatter.
AMP – a salt brine additive – is mixed in with brine to intensify the effect of the mixture. A key component is its built in corrosion inhibitor. AMP will reduce the damage to road department equipment and bridges each winter, saving the already tight budgets significant dollars. Lab and road tests have seen strong results with temperatures as low as 10°F.
MeltDown Apex is a liquid deicer. Its melting capabilities are a 12°F improvement in freeze point over any other liquid deicer. Making it easier for Idaho road departments to battle the snow and ice buildup, Meltdown Apex has an enhanced version of mag brine that works at lower temperatures.
