Ice Melt Products – Are Deicer Claims Full of Baloney???

Hello again. Just back and catching up from the APWA Snow Show in Milwaukee. What a great event. Lot’s of vendor displays, lot’s of new folks to talk with and share idea’s and talk about what works and what doesn’t. On that note, I just have to share a presentation done by Joe Althouse, Chemical Engineer for Occidental Chemical Corporation. I have known Joe for some time now and I have to say, he know’s of what he speaks. If he hasn’t proven the science, he will tell you it isn’t true and give you the details of why or why not something does or doesn’t work. His presentation gives you the “tools” to decide for yourself if deicer claims are fact or fiction Baloney. The one thing I gleaned from the presentation is that if your presented with claims that can’t be backed up with a study, be very careful about the validity of the claim.

Enough from me, take a look at the presentation and let me know what you think. It was very well received at the show.
