What Is Road Brine?
Updated: Dec 28, 2022
In many parts of the country, the winter season brings snow, ice. and brutally cold weather. When frozen precipitation such as snow and ice build up on roadways, they become slick and rather unsafe. In order to prevent and manage slick road conditions mixtures of salts are often applied. These coarse salt crystals or rock salts dissolve in ice, melting ice and snow. These crystals can fly up especially on highways and chip painted surfaces on your automobile. Pure water has a freezing temperature of 32 degrees F. as these salt crystals dissolve, the freezing temperature decreases, requiring much colder temps to turn into ice. The exact temperature depends on the brine mix. Sodium Chloride and Calcium chloride are the most common ingredients.
