Anti-icing involves pre-treating a road before the freezing weather or storm arrives with the goal of limiting or preventing the buildup of ice. Applying ice melting chemicals before a storm hits is more effective at melting ice than applying an ice-melting material after a storm hits and a layer of ice has already formed because the chemicals prevent the snow from bonding to the pavement. As a result, snow can be removed with a shovel, blower or plow much easier and a lot faster. Snow and ice management professionals can decrease the time and cost of their operations by anti-icing.
De-icing methods generally involves spreading dry or liquid chemicals to speed the melting process of snow pack or ice that has already formed on the pavement. When sodium chloride (salt) comes in contact with moisture, it dissolves and generates heat. When temperatures drop below freezing there is no moisture on the road, and salt alone is ineffective. The use of dry solid chemicals in conjunction with a liquid de-icer will speed the melting process of the snow and ice pack. This method is called Pre-wetting.
Pre-Wetting is the process of spraying salt with a solution of liquid chemical before spreading the salt on the roadway. Pre-wetting the salt helps it work more effectively as a de-icing agent because it provides extra moisture to quicken the melting process and will begin dissolving snow pack and ice faster than dry material alone. When used on dry roads, materials adhere to roadway better instead of bouncing off or being swept off by traffic.
