But road salt does. Roads stay safer with LIQUIDOW™ calcium chloride regardless of how cold it gets outside.
Calcium chloride speeds up concrete projects by reducing concrete set times by as much as two-thirds.
Calcium chloride is a salt made of calcium and chloride. As one of the most versatile of the basic elements, calcium chloride is useful for a variety of applications, from food preservation to dust control. Calcium chloride, in its dry state, releases heat as it reacts with moisture, melting ice and snow at a much lower temperature than rock salt.
How long does a road last? When do we stop filling potholes and look at the safety of the road? Just consider the costs of filling potholes and sealing cracks year after year. It might be time for another way. Recycle the road and create a more permanent solution for stable, safe, and low-maintenance roads.
Over the course of two decades, a municipality could spend up to $100,000 of taxpayers’ money repairing a single damaged road.
Save up to 70% on road repairs for that same single road by investing in a full-depth reclamation project that leverages calcium chloride for a superior foundation.
Your newly-renovated road will last up to 20 years. The calcium chloride foundation will maintain the quality of the road and prevent the degradation of pavement quality.
This is another question that we get at GLC. Hope this helps clear things up!Read More
“We use calcium chloride for dust control on our gravel roads, where we can maintain roads with underbody blades or graders. We use calcium chloride when we reclaim existing chip and seal roads, to stabilize the base. During the winter months we apply calcium chloride at the spinner to enhance the melting process of our salt on snow and ice.”
