The best product… for your roads

Super salt SEL BOURGET®

Super salt SEL BOURGET ® is a deicing salt treated with CMH-30, that which gives it a greenish colour. The use of CMH-30 increases salt efficiency by improving adherence to the pavement and melting power, and reducing spreading rates, all of which result in substantial savings for the users with MINIMIZED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS. This salt has an immediate melting effect on snow and ice; it remains more efficient than non-treated salt at much lower temperatures. You can now have your salt treated at your own facilities or purchase Super salt SEL BOURGET ® directly from us.

Advantages of using super salt SEL BOURGET ®

  • Reduces application rates;
  • Improved melting capacity;
  • Keeps product reserves always malleable;
  • Starts working immediately and accelerates the melting process;
  • Improves salt efficiency at lower temperatures;
  • Makes the applied product more visible on the road.

During the 2014-2015 winter season, we used only super salt SEL BOURGET ® for our road contracts with the Quebec Ministry of Transport in the Lanaudière region and applied 13 to 18 MT/km.

CMH-30 FOR DEICING SALTS

CMH-30 is a mixture of liquid magnesium and calcium chloride at a concentration of 30% to which are added a corrosion inhibitor and a natural green colouring. This product, entirely fabricated in Québec, improves deicing salt efficiency. Using CMH-30 allows to reduce losses caused by the rebound effect during spreading as moistened salt adheres better and offers more resistance to attraction towards the shoulder created by the flow of vehicles.

CMH-30-treated salt reacts upon application. As treated salt contains the right amount of humidity, the activation period is much shorter than that of non-treated salt. The use of moistened salt results in safer roads and increased spreading efficiency. In addition, moistened salt is less corrosive for spreading equipment and infrastructures because CMH-30 contains a corrosion inhibitor that reduces the degree of corrosivity.

There are two different methods for using CMH-30, either as a solution prewetting or for moistening salt reserves.

During prewetting, CMH-30 is sprayed on salt in the truck right before the spreading operation. The selected liquid/salt application rate can be modified in the course of the work. The CMH-30 storage tanks are usually installed at the supply site to more easily fill the tanks fixed on the spreaders.

Moistening salt reserves is a simple and cost-effective technique as the handling is similar to that of non-treated salt. The salt and liquid are mixed in a mobile mixing unit; this equipment ensures monitoring of specific dosages and uniform coating of each grain of salt with CMH-30, thus keeping the stored products malleable and avoiding the formation of lumps (frozen salt).

In short, using CMH-30 increases salt efficiency and reduces application rates, thus resulting in substantial savings for users and MINIMAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS.
