Caliber M-1000

Caliber M-1000 is a versatile, corrosion inhibiting liquid designed for anti-icing, deicing, frost prevention, and pre-wetting solids.

Caliber M-1000 is a blended deicer derived from corn, specifically engineered to enhance the eutectic point, anti-icing properties and viscosity of MgCl2.

 

Anti-Icing
As an anti-icer and frost preventer, Caliber M-1000 provides superior “anti-bonding” properties, allowing easy removal of snow pack with simple plowing.

 

Deicing
As a liquid deicer, Caliber M-1000 outperforms other liquid products. When applied in a stream pattern, Caliber M-1000 vertically penetrates the snow pack and breaks the bond at the road surface.

 

Pre-wetting
As an onboard pre-wetting agent for salt and sand, Caliber M-1000:

  • Reduces bounce and scatter
  • Increases the speed at which the salt begins working
  • Improves the melting capacity of the salt
  • Permits the use of salt at lower temperatures

 

Caliber M-1000 enhances the performance of MgCl2 at low temperatures. Caliber M-1000 suppresses crystal formation in MgCl2, therefore eliminating the recrystalization phase and crystal fallout problems. Caliber M-1000 is also far less corrosive than other products.  Tests prove that Caliber M-1000 is over 80% less corrosive than rock salt and over 60% less corrosive than magnesium chloride.

Caliber M-1000  has been approved by the PNS as a qualified product.
