Arizona Deicing and Anti-Icing
Keeping icy winter roads in Arizona safe for travelers is a top priority for Departments of Transportation. From I-40 to I-17, Arizona 60 to 191 – the interstate freeways, state highways, county roads, and city streets become treacherous every winter. How is your public works or roads and streets department ensuring that travel is as safe as possible? Arizona deicing, ice melting, and anti-icing procedures impact state, county, city, and tribal roads and streets departments, for both local commuters and travelers. How do you prepare?
Arizona is a state that is known for its high temperatures. But icy roads and big snowfalls exist in the high country around Flagstaff, Williams, and Show Low. And Mount Lemmon in southeastern Arizona sees its share of freezing temperatures. Whether the road department plan is to minimize the buildup of snow and ice BEFORE it happens, enhance the effectiveness of salt or sand treatments, or prevent bridges from icing up – Desert Mountain Corporation has the solution for your needs.
Arizona Deicing Products
Our laboratory tested and field-proven granular and liquid solutions for Arizona ice melt, deicing, and anti-icing solutions include:
Ice Slicer is a fast-acting granular ice melt / de-icing product used to break the bond of snow and ice from roadways, walkways, driveways, and parking lots. The unique blend of Ice Slicer’s natural chlorides is mined in Utah. It melts snow and ice effectively to 0° F, resulting in safer roads at lower temperatures. Ice Slicer’s road deicer has a distinctive natural dark red color that is free of dyes and full of 60+ natural minerals. It has a distinctive red coloring that clearly marks the road, letting the public know a road has been treated. Available for purchase in 50 lb. bags, 1 ton super sacks, and in bulk truckload quantities.
Don’t settle for plain road salt! Get Ice Slicer – a fast-acting deicing compound, ideal for general highway and street deicing. In the first 30 minutes after application, Ice Slicer RS effectively melts more snow and ice than white salt. It is easier on equipment and infrastructure since it is at least 20% less corrosive than white salt. As a natural blend, Ice Slicer will not stain concrete or asphalt or require clean up after the snow melts.
A liquid deicer, Meltdown, delivers a 12°F improvement in freeze point over any other liquid deicer. It makes it easier for Arizona road departments to battle the snow and ice buildup on the roads and bridges with an enhanced version of magnesium chloride brine that works at lower temperatures.
AMP is a salt brine additive, mixed in with the brine to intensify the effect of the mixture. With its built-in corrosion inhibitor, AMP boosts melting power by lowering the product’s freezing point (1:1) from 18℉ to 11℉. Designed to combat the damaging effects of plain road salt, it decreases corrosion by 70% as compared to rock salt.
SOS Liquid Stockpile Treatment
Treating large or small aggregate, sand, or salt stockpiles with SOS will increase the performance of salt or gravel applications. Save money for the road departments with SOS. With an application of SOS, it will reduce leeching and requires a smaller amount of sand or salt to be spread due to less bounce and scatter.
Desert Mountain Corporation offers a complete line of ice control and melting products. Available in both granular and liquid forms, these products are designed for Arizona’s deicing of busy and often dangerous roads. Every area is different – even within the state – with its own challenges. Our expert team will guide you in determining the best products and application rates for de-icing and anti-icing solutions.
