Deicer Anti-icing Snow melting or Thawing Chemical Magnesium Chloride Manufacturers
De-icing is defined as removal of existing, snow ice, frost, etc., from a surface. It includes both mechanical (plowing or scraping) or chemical (application of salt or other ice melting chemicals) methods.
Anti-icing is defined as the pretreatment of a roadway, sidewalk or parking lot with ice melting chemicals before a storm, to prevent or delay the formation of ice, or the adhesion of ice and snow.
Ice melting products can help facility managers keep their buildings safe and approachable. Good snow and ice control is definitely a large part of slip-and-fall prevention. Not using deicer or anti icing snow melting compounds is a costly error. Do not over use but do use it and use the right type of de icer.
Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2)
Magnesium chloride (MgC12) is an increasingly popular alternative to sodium chloride. Magnesium chloride is less corrosive and aggressive than rock salt and less toxic to plant and animal life and surrounding waterways. It functions as an anti-freeze by lowering the temperature of water and preventing it from bonding to the road, and is available in flake or pellet form for home use. Magnesium chloride is a hygroscopic compound. It absorbs moisture creating heat. This allows the magnesium chloride to dissolve into a brine solution quickly hence melting ice and snow very quickly. It is relatively harmless to plant life. Mmagnesium chloride is an environmentally friendly alternative for melting ice and snow. Magnesium chloride can effectively melt ice and snow in temperatures of 5F or even lower. It is not effective at very low temperatures. Magnesium chloride is a corrosive to concrete flatwork that is less than a year old.

Storage & Handling
Magnesium Chloride must be stored in leak proof bags. Check for the condition of the bags on receipt and do provide a double cover to a torn bag. Avoid exposure to moisture and heat.
Magnesium Chloride has a tendency to loosely stick to one another during storage. If the material in the bags is lumpy, then lift the bag and drop it a couple of times to loosen it. Magnesium Chloride is not an environmental issue and it can be used for deicing anti-icing, even if it is exposed to moisture and caked.
