In winter maintenance, the chloride-based deicers used to keep roadways clear of snow and ice are highly corrosive to vehicles and equipment. Corrosion of snow and ice equipment is a major issue causing increased maintenance and repair costs, reduced vehicle life, and increased vehicle downtime. Statistics show that road salt causes approximately $1500/ton of damage to vehicles, bridges, and the environment. Washing of winter maintenance equipment after exposure to ice control chemicals has… 
Effectiveness of Products in Managing Metallic Corrosion Induced by Cyclic Deicer Exposure: Laboratory Study Using Multielectrode Array Sensors, Electrochemical Impedance, and Laser Profilometer
AbstractA total of 12 multielectrode array sensors were utilized to assess the individual effectiveness of two corrosion inhibitors and one coating under cyclic deicer exposure conditions. There were
