Responsible use of ice melting and abrasive materials should be a primary goal of road and highway ice control programs. Experience has shown that use of calcium chloride can improve the effectiveness of ice control while potentially reducing the amount of ice melter and abrasive materials used to keep roads open and safe. OxyChem has compiled information that can help you use calcium chloride ice melters in the most responsible manner. See Application Best Practices for information about the proper amount of calcium chloride necessary to achieve desired results while avoiding over-application. Please also see product Material Safety Data Sheets for individual products to further understand how to safely handle and use OxyChem calcium chloride products.
