Outperforms White Salt

In All Storms | In All Temperatures| At All Grades

“At all temperatures Ice Slicer was superior to standard road salt at melting snow & ice.” – Utah DOT 
“Phenomenal! Ice Slicer works faster & longer in all storms.”
– South Jordan, UT
“At cold temperatures Ice Slicer stays down. I very rarely have slide-offs here and I have a lot of curves with 10% grades. Park City dispatch calls me and says, ‘Do you want us to close the road?’ I say, ‘Nope, I’ll keep it going!’”
– Talisker Mountain, UT 
“I have been in the snow and ice control business for over 25 years and am always looking for better and more cost effective ways to deal with our climate of many black ice and freezing rain events. Ice slicer has outperformed all of the other brands we have used and our maintenance on spreaders and trucks is also down.”
– Magnum Enterprises, Ketchikan, Alaska

 

Works Faster & Lasts Longer than White Salt

Dry Roads | Safer Travel | Less Complaints

“With Ice Slicer the roads are dry much faster and the shoulders are cleared off quicker. The lingering moisture in the night air normally requires reapplication, but with Ice Slicer we don’t have to baby sit the roads as much through the night because going into the night the roads are already dry. The local trucking companies are telling us what a great job we are doing this year.”

– Salina, UT DOT

“We took one truck loaded with white salt and one loaded with Ice Slicer and went up the freeway spreading both at the same rate. We turned around at the top and as we were coming down the Ice Slicer lane was wet and the lane with white salt hadn’t even started melting yet!”
– Heber, UT
“Roads were usually dry 6 to 12 hours ahead of other areas when using Ice Slicer.”
– Colorado DOT
There are many advantages to using Ice Slicer. The most apparent benefit is how much quicker the material begins to melt ice compared to using just straight [white] salt. There is such a remarkable difference between the streets treated with IceSlicer and those that have not, that we now have citizens calling to specifically request Ice Slicer in and around their neighborhoods!” – Colorado Springs, CO

 

Creates Safer Roads Than White Salt

Saving Time | Saving Lives | Saving Money

“In our first year using Ice Slicer we reduced crashes 45%!”
– Arizona DOT
“We keep roads open we couldn’t keep open before.”
– Wenatchee, WA 
“Ice Slicer reduced our traffic accident rate – it melts faster & lasts longer.”
– Greeley, CO
“Ice Slicer stays down. I very rarely have slide-offs here and I have a lot of curves with 10% grades. Park City dispatch calls me and says, ‘Do you want us to close the road?’ I say, ‘Nope, I’ll keep it going!’”
– Talisker Mountain, UT

 

Less Expensive Than White Salt

Lower Clean-up Costs | Lower Fuel Costs

“Ice Slicer is the most cost-effective deicing product we have ever used!”
– Torrington, WY
“Ice Slicer gives us approximately a 50% savings in snow fighting costs per storm.”
– Cheyenne, WY
“(Due to its natural traction), Ice slicer saved us over $64,000 in the first year we used it in cleanup costs alone!”– Gillette, WY
“We went from 33% over budget to 17% under budget when we replaced white salt with Ice Slicer!” – South Jordan, UT
“(We) used Ice Slicer in very limited quantities until severe downsizing took place between 2008 and 2010. You might think this would mean reducing our use of Ice Slicer. However, as a cost savings measure the decision was made to actually increase our usage. We changed over many of our 54 snow routes to Ice Slicer routes and applied the material at 150lbs/ lane mile. Most of our arterial streets are now treated exclusively with Ice Slicer. The results are miraculous and enable us to get onto other routes much quicker.”
– Colorado Springs, CO
 
“This last winter was a record breaker for snow. The icing and traction related problems that came with that amount of snow, not to mention any Alaskan winter, are hard to describe. Ice Slicer did a great job for us. We paid more per ton for Slicer than for rock salt, but it performed better and was more environmentally friendly. However, the biggest surprise was in the spring after the snow melted. We get to pick up all the sand and gravel we throw around all winter. What fun. This spring, because we used a good amount of Ice Slicer, we had the fastest cleanup ever. Ice Slicer saved us a lot of money. We bought less sand and gravel, and spent less in labor picking it all up later. Thanks for a good product; you helped us provide a safer, cleaner campus for our students and staff.”
– University of Alaska, Anchorage 

 

Less-Corrosive

Less Wear | Less Tear | Less Equipment Costs

“Maintaining equipment is one of our biggest expenses, so we pay attention to the products we use. We notice more corrosion on our equipment when we use white salt. We feel Ice Slicer is less corrosive and helps our equipment last longer.”
– Heber, UT DOT
Ice slicer has outperformed all of the other brands we have used and our maintenance on spreaders and trucks is also down.”
– Magnum Enterprises, Ketchikan, Alaska
“Using Ice Slicer we now spend $200,000 less per year on guard rails.”
– Wichita Falls, TX

 

Increased Traction

Tons of Traction | Nothing to Clean Up

“Ice Slicer gives good traction – we no longer need to use sand. There are no more complaints about sandy grit damaging property & windshields!”
– Casper, WY

“Ice Slicer delivers a double-bang – traction & melting.” – Gillette, WY

Ice Slicer in the News

“White salt typically will stop melting effectively between about 18, 20 degrees,” industrial products leader Doug Anderson said. “[Ice Slicer] works effectively down to zero or below zero degrees.” 

Watch Now

“Ice Slicer is the product of choice throughout Arizona,” Field and Facilities Director Stephanie Miller told the council. The city has used Ice Slicer for the past four years, Miller said, “and we don’t notice any rust” on the city’s 500 pieces of equipment.”

“We call and they deliver it, get on the road the next day,” Brown said. “We make sure we have enough [Ice Slicer] on hand and ready to handle any storm that Mother Nature throws at us.”  

Watch Now

“Research by the American Public Works Association indicates the use of a material called Ice Slicer would be more effective in providing traction for drivers traveling on icy roads and the material would be more environmentally friendly than the current sale-sand mixture.”
