Usage and dosage

Where When Recommendation Why Dosage
From 0°C and below CC road® 77% flakes Flakes are practical/easy to apply 15g/m2– 50g/m2
Hard layer of ice and snow which cannot be removed with regular NaCl CC road® 77% flakes CC road® flakes penetrate through the ice down to the road surface making mechanical removal easier 15g/m2– 50g/m2
Temperature below -10°C (down to -25°C) CC road® 77% flakes or 34% liquid CC road® has the lowest freezing point of all de-icing agents Flakes
15g/m2– 30g/m2

Liquid
30g/m2– 45g/m2

Dry NaCl alone is not enough to remove ice/snow Combine CC road® 77% flakes or 34% liquid (1/3) with dry NaCl (2/3) The superior performance of CC road® improves the effectiveness of NaCl 20g/m2– 50g/m2
Preventive or curative below 0°C when NaCl is not sufficiently effective CC road® 34% liquid CC road® has a higher density than NaCl solution. CC road® is more heavy and will ”stick” to the road See chart below
