Pacific Northwest Snowfighters

The scope of this research is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will evaluate the longevity and cost effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitors that are added to deicers. An evaluation to determine the length of time the inhibitors remain effective within the products as it is applied to the road and also when stored in a variety of storage containment test sites over a period of time. Phase 2 is an evaluation of the performance of the various deicers based on corrosion inhibitors and additives. Each product will be applied at varying rates, road conditions, temperatures, and humidity in order to establish their performance.
