ECOSALT® is a granular de-icing product that features ice-control performance superior to traditional highway salt, but is less corrosive and can reduce overall environmental damage from winter maintenance operations. A proven technology, ECOSALT® can be used to pre-treat a surface or to de-ice accumulation.
ECOSALT® is effective at temperatures where regular salt is not.
ECOSALT® is treated with a naturally-derived, environmentally friendly material, with a proven track record established through years of use by winter maintenance professionals. The treatment process coats each granule with a layer of the highly effective beet juice base ingredient. This coating serves three functions:
- First, it maintains a constant film of liquid around each granule so melting begins immediately upon application without waiting for the initial brine process.
- Second, once the brine process does start, the initial solution is actually a concentrated ECOSALT® brine.
- Third, the slightly tacky nature of the coating causes the granule to stick to the surface where its applied, significantly reducing bounce and scatter. As a result, ECOSALT™can be applied at 1/3 the rate of rock salt. That translates directly into more miles treated per load as well as less chlorides being introduced into the environment. The organic coating reduces corrosion to equipment and is less corrosive overall compared to rock salt.
