Nature’s Best®

A blend of natural granular and liquid deicer products, safe for concrete, asphalt, metal, animals and vegetation

Nature’s Best is created through the application of a high-performance liquid deicer to granular ice-melt using “pre-wetting” technology and concepts currently in use by major government and commercial deicing operations. Through this pre-wetting process, granular ice-melt performs better, melts faster and lasts longer.

For best results, remove any existing loose snow and slush from driveways, steps and walkways prior to application of ice-melt. Evenly sprinkle Nature’s Best on desired surfaces. Melting should begin immediately. Once snow and ice have sufficiently melted, shovel off slush. Thick accumulations may require additional application. Nature’s Best may also be kept in cars and trucks for use any time when traction is needed.

Unique color enhances performance. The unique color of Nature’s Best serves as a guide to where and how much has been applied. Usage is generally half as much and half as often as compared with other deicers. The blue color absorbs heat from the sun on cold sunny days to help the melting process.

Do not use on concrete that is less than one year old, or that was not properly mixed, finished, or cured. Flaking or spalling may occur when using any ice-melting product on concrete surfaces, especially those that are poorly constructed, contain porous concrete or act as a mortar joints between bricks and flagstone. When used in these situations, Nature’s Best should cause less damage than most other deicers and will reduce the number of concrete freeze/thaw cycles, which also greatly contributes to concrete damage.

MeltDown® Liquid

A high performance magnesium chloride (MgCl2) anti-icer and deicer that delivers longer lasting performance

MeltDown Liquid has a low eutectic point that works effectively in a broad variety of temperature ranges. Its exceedingly high ability to dilute and hold water before refreezing improves the all-weather performance of this product.  Additionally, MeltDown Liquid is among the least harmful of common deicers to vegetation and groundwater according to independent studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  It is non-irritating and safer to handle and less harmful to road surfaces and metals when used as recommended.

MeltDown Liquid is also offered as a corrosion inhibited product: MeltDown AP, MeltDown with Shield AP and MeltDown Inhibited.

MeltDown AP, or MeltDown Liquid with Shield AP,  has been approved by the PNS as a qualified product.

Calcium Chloride

An odorless and colorless salt solution that can be used for both road treatment and industrial purposes

Primary applications include deicing and dust control for roads, but is also used as a concrete additive, an anti-freeze, and is often used in oilfield applications. It is available in a variety of concentrations and package types.

Deicing/Anti-icing – Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) provides effective deicing/anti-icing when applied either before or after a snow or ice storm. When used prior, it inhibits the bonding of snow and ice to the pavement, making it easier for snowplows to clear roads down to bare pavement. When used as a deicing product, Calcium Chloride will quickly begin to melt snow and ice breaking the bond to achieve a clear surface. In addition, Calcium Chloride in its dry form begins the brine process quickly to achieve a quick burn to melt accumulated snow and ice.

Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) delivers solid performance in liquid and dry form — its’ exothermic quality causes it to release heat during the chemical reaction. It is also hygroscopic: it draws in moisture and resists evaporation. These two key factors make it a versatile product for year-round maintenance programs in snow removal, dust control, and industrial purposes.

SOS® Treated Salt

Deicing salt enhanced with Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2)

Available in the Mid-Atlantic region, SOS Treated Salt combines the benefits of liquid magnesium chloride with white salt used for deicing.

  • Permits the use of salt at lower temperatures
  • Increases the speed and effectiveness of salt
  • Reduces the effects of corrosion
  • Aids in the prevention of freezing or “clumping”
  • Reduced bounce and scatter
  • Diminishes leaching in stockpiles

MeltDown Apex®

The only liquid anti-icing and deicing product that delivers unmatched melting performance at lower temperatures

MeltDown Apex delivers a 12°F improvement in freeze point over any other liquid deicer. This performance enhanced magnesium chloride (MgCl2) brine not only produces results at lower temperatures, it also improves the ability to combat snow and ice buildup on road surfaces. Apex can be used as a stand-alone product or blended with salt to expedite snow and ice melt and enhance traction.

For anti-icing applications, the enhanced melting capacity of Apex provides longer cycle times between routes by decreasing snow pack buildup and improving snow removal by plow, therefore decreasing your costs.

For deicing, applied in a stream pattern, Apex quickly penetrates vertically through the snow pack and breaks the bond at the road surface.

Client testimonial:

“I picked up my first load of APEX enhanced melter on Wednesday. Yesterday, I applied the product for the first time to some stubborn and thick ground ice I hadn’t been able to clear with either of my previous melters. Within 5 minutes the ice had granulated and an hour later it was reduced to spotty slush. This morning, I visited the same lot to clear an inch of snow and treat the entire lot. I was quite surprised to find that section of the lot, normally a big problem for us, clear and open to pavement while the rest of the lot was fully snow covered! After a quick scrape, I applied APEX to the rest of the lot and it was open and clear within 30 minutes — a fraction of time it normally takes — truly impressive. I also sprayed the city walks around the property (about a 1/4 mile of walk) and didn’t even have to take my old granular product off the truck. I just didn’t need it. I’m glad I found my way to you guys!” -Dan


One of EnviroTech’s latest product releases is bringing our usual product quality to salt brine additives

Because salt brine alone is prone to drying out and being swept from the road’s surface, they have very identifiable performance limitations. AMP increases how effectively the product bonds to the surface and creates safer road conditions. It also boosts melting power by lowering the product’s freezing point (1:1) from 18℉ to 11℉, and decreases corrosion by 70% as compared to rock salt. AMP has undergone extensive testing to validate its effectiveness and clearly define how it is best utilized. Download the brochure and contact us to learn more about how this innovative product can enhance your salt brine program.

“The advantage we found using AMP® over previous additives was our old brine mix worked well for anti-icing but not deicing. We started using Better Brine Pro with 20% AMP®. Now, we have a true dual-purpose liquid product that we can apply before or during an event with enough residual and melting capacity to take care of the nuisance snows.”

A state-of-the-art anti-icing, deicing and frost prevention liquid product

Unlike many non-chloride products, Apogee is not acetate based—making it the perfect product for areas where acetates are prohibited. Apogee can be applied in a standard steam line pattern or through automated spray systems. Apogee was designed to maintain a lower viscosity, which enables it to perform at low temperatures and still maintain spray patterns through Bridge Spray Systems or Fixed Automated Spray Technology.

Apogee performs well across the entire temperature range and features a significantly lower corrosion rate, scoring 13.9% on the PNS scale. Unlike acetate based products, it does not aggressively attack galvanized metals. Apogee’s viscosity allows it to flow at low temperatures, maintain spray patterns and stay on the road longer. Apogee will not dry out after a storm and “dust off”; it actually helps reduce dust from abrasives and other roadway contaminants.


Delivers unmatched performance at colder temperatures

SOS-C (SOS™ utilizing calcium chloride) powerfully accelerates the melting performance of your granular salt, particularly at colder temperatures. SOS-C is designed to reduce leaching in stock piles, especially in higher humidity conditions, allowing you to pre-treat stock piles in any season. This creates the ability to prepare materials well in advance and plan more effectively for winter operations.

Treating a stock pile with 6-10 gallons of SOS-C per ton of granular material powerfully enhances the performance of your salt stock pile, particularly at colder temperatures. SOS-C can be applied to a stock pile in advance or as it is being delivered. Treating the entire stock pile prior to application to the roadway eliminates the need for pre-wetting saddle tanks.

We can provide you with the SOS liquid allowing you to treat your own salt. As an alternative for those customers without the equipment to treat their own stockpiles, EnviroTech has a Mobile Salt Treatment Unit that provides this as a convenient service.
