SELECTION AND USE OF DE-ICING CHEMICALS AND ABRASIVES IN NORTH AMERICA AND OVERSEAS 780907

This paper presents the state of the art on the selection and use of de-icing chemicals and abrasives. More specifically, it deals with: the need for de-icing chemicals and abrasives, problems associated with them, alternative solutions, factors to consider when selecting the appropriate solution, the current practice, and the future trends in the use of chemicals.Based on a recent literature survey, the author concludes, that, even though we are on the verge of a breakthrough, until the time comes, we should be prepared to live with these chemicals for many years, and that the adverse effects due to chemical use can be minimized through the combined efforts of road and automotive engineers, especially through the application of existing knowledge.
