DriRox is a high performance deicing salt that every road maintenance program should have in its arsenal. Free-flowing and uniform in size, it delivers more effective and longer-lasting results because of lower moisture content than other solar salts.
Some salts have a moisture content of 2.0% or more, which can cause clumping, poor application, clogging and a variety of challenges. DriRox is kiln-dried solar salt with a moisture content less than 0.1%. This helps ensure:
- No freezing or clumping
- Better flow
- More effective application
- Faster acting than red salt
- Easier mix to create brine
DustGard magnesium chloride is the preferred product for dust control, soil stabilization and wind erosion problems on roads and bare soil.
When applied to roads and bare soil areas, it immediately provides tangible benefits including:
- Cleaner air, which leads to better health. Fugitive dust can cause health problems in the young, elderly and those with respiratory conditions.
- Greater safety through improved road conditions, including increased driver visibility and decreased risks caused by loose gravel, soft spots, road roughness and flying rocks.
- Stable soil, preventing destructive wind erosion. It reduces foreign sediment in nearby surface waters (dust that settles in creeks and streams), helps prevent stunted crop growth caused by clogged pores in plants and keeps vehicles and property cleaner.
Providing safe roads during the toughest winter storms requires more than an ordinary deicer. That's why we've created FreezGard, the leading high-performance anti-icing liquid on the market. Transportation departments across the country trust FreezGard to create the safest roads with its unsurpassed low-temperature performance and superior melting capacity.
