Function MeltDown 20 draws moisture from the ice, snow and air to form a melting brine that breaks the bond between ice, snow and the road surface. The magnesium chloride portion immediately begins aggressively melting the ice while the percentage of red complex chloride acts as an abrasive and a slower melting agent, providing a fast-acting ice and snow fighting solution with longevity.
Location On bridges, overpasses, streets, parking lots and sidewalks at places such as highways, hospitals, schools, fire stations, etc.
Application Use any size spreader that has the capability to apply or to be modified to apply at a rate of 100-150 lbs per lane mile. Hand-operated fertilizer spreaders are ideal for sidewalks and smaller applications.
Efficiency 100-150 lb per lane mile spread rate of MD20 vs. 500-1000 lbs per lane mile using salt/sand translates into a greater number of roads being treated much faster, resulting in a higher degree of safety and efficiency.
Aesthetics A darker neutral color allows the operator to see it and allows the product to absorb more light and heat than white salt, thus expediting the melting process even further.
Gradation A varied gradation ranging from small granules, which begin melting immediately, to 1/4 inch size particles that melt slower while creating a fastacting product with longevity.
