Keeping Utah Winter Roads Safe
In Utah, ice melting, deicing and anti-icing on roads are critical for the safety of residents and visitors. Charged with keeping icy winter roads safe are the city, county, tribal, and state Departments of Transportation. From I-15 to I-70, SR-89 to SR-150 – interstate and state highways, county roads, and city streets become hazardous every winter. How are your highway, public works or roads, and streets departments ensuring that winter travel is as safe as possible? Utah anti-icing, deicing, and ice melting procedures impact both local commuters, visitors to the state’s amazing natural wonders, and business travelers.

Utah winter storms can range from light to fierce, from Salt Lake City to Provo, Ogden to St. George – but the roads get slick and slippery either way. Every area and snowfall amount requires a road department plan to minimize the buildup of snow and ice BEFORE it happens, to enhance the effectiveness of salt or sand treatments, or prevent bridges from icing up. Desert Mountain Corporation has liquid and granular solutions to meet the needs of the different Utah environments.
Utah Deicing and Anti-Icing Solutions
Ice Slicer is an environmentally friendly, low-corrosive granular ice melt and de-icing product used to break the bond of snow and ice from Utah roadways, walkways, driveways, and parking lots. The unique natural blend of Ice Slicer’s chlorides is mined in right 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 it has been treated. Available for purchase in 50 lb. bags, 1-ton super sacks, and in bulk truckload quantities – call Doyle Villers at 970-844-0811 for more information.
Don’t settle for plain road salt! Ice Slicer is a fast-acting deicing compound, ideal for general highway and street deicing. In the first 30 minutes after application, Ice Slicer 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.
MeltDown is a liquid deicer. Its melting capabilities are a 12°F improvement in freeze point over any other liquid deicer. Making it easier for Utah roads departments to battle the snow and ice buildup with an enhanced version of mag brine that works at lower temperatures.
SOS Liquid Stockpile Treatment
By treating large or small aggregate, sand, or salt stockpiles with SOS, winter road departments will increase the performance of salt or gravel applications. Saving money for the 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 Deicing Liquid
AMP is a salt brine additive, mixed in with the brine to intensify the effect of the mixture. With its built-in corrosion inhibitor, it can be mixed-in to meet PNX standards with outstanding results. Lab and road tests have seen strong results with temperatures as low as 10°F.
