Long-lasting snowstorms are no match for a well-stocked inventory of liquid calcium chloride totes
Liquid ice melt is an excellent pre-treatment for a snowfall to reduce dangers of slippery ice and thick snow accumulation. This pre-treatment action is called anti-icing.
Anti-icing* is a proactive strategy to prevent ice bond from forming between accumulation and the surface, typically executed by Direct Liquid Application up to 48 hours before a storm. Anti- icing appears like wet stripes on dry pavement; the wet areas reduce the bond between snow and ice and the pavement while the dry areas maintain friction.
Having inventory of liquid lice melt totes and drums allows you to work effortlessly to cover critical high-traffic areas, like roadways and interstates. The large tote and drum sizes have you covered throughout long-lasting snowstorms.

Using liquid calcium chloride as an ice melt, like previously mentioned 275 GAL Calcium Chloride Tote, is an ideal, efficient product for winter maintenance. It has an effective temperature of 20°F with fast-acting properties, working faster than Magnesium Chloride on its own. Calcium Chloride adds the most speed and melt capabilities when included in a blend, most often found with Magnesium Chloride and Sodium Chloride. Purchasing large totes for the winter will keep you well-prepared to effectively provide safety for others, whether for road treatment or industrial purposes.
In order to properly reduce the risk of heavy snow and ice accumulations, you must practice effective methods for high-risk, high-traffic, and high-speed areas. These areas often look like sidewalks in front of schools, or interstates as previously mentioned.
Applying liquid deicer immediately before the storm creates a microlayer of melting under snow and ice; this melting layer reduces the bond between snow and ice and the pavement, so mechanical snow removal is easier. Liquid ice melt totes and drums, like liquid calcium chloride totes, make anti-icing treatments that much easier and efficient.
*It’s important to note that the success of using liquid ice melt and anti-icing methods is entirely dependent on important factors like the type of weather event, application rate, liquid deicer, and spread pattern*
