IceSlicer RS has a unique blend of natural chlorides that outperforms liquid anti-icing chemicals and rock salt. IceSlicer RS melts down ice and snow to 5°F, a full 17°F lower than regular road salt. IceSlicer RS’s “reddish” color not only accelerates ice melt by absorbing 50% more of the sun’s radiant energy than white deicing products, it also signals to motorists that roads have been treated. IceSlicer RS requires fewer applications resulting in reduced amounts of chlorides introduced into the environment. Since IceSlicer RS delivers enhanced traction, the need for sand is eliminated or reduced, thereby significantly reducing sediment loading on roads and in nearby streams.
