Introduction

Do you know someone, playing or crawling on pack ice by the sea?

If you do, you know that sea ice is not slippery!

 

The rule shall apply on ice or snow with 3% Sodium Chloride (NaCl) on roads, too.

The measurements, which confirm this “old truth” took place in Finland1 with temperatures down to –20ºC.

How does it work?

Brine as anti-icing is similar to how cooking oil prevents food from sticking to the frying pan.

It forms a bond-breaker between the pavement surface and the snow and ice layer which reduces the chance that ice will form and bond to the surface.
