Learn More About Road Guard Plus™
Road Guard Plus™ is a corrosion inhibited liquid calcium chloride solution developed especially for anti-icing and de-icing pre-wetting applications in moderate to extreme winter conditions.
It has been regularly used as an anti-icing agent on Alberta Transportation projects and has an established performance record on projects including the heavily travelled arteries of the northwest Anthony Henday ring road in Edmonton, Alta. and Deerfoot Trail in Calgary, Alta.
- Road Guard Plus™ is the only product approved by Alberta Transportation as a Proven Proprietary Product for anti-icing and winter road maintenance.
- Road Guard Plus™ is also on the approved anti-icing/de-icing products list of the departments of Infrastructure and Transportation in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
- Calcium chloride brine is not a new anti-icing solution. Since the 1970s, calcium chloride has been in common use throughout North America because of its superior ability to melt snow and ice and its effectiveness in cold winter climates well below the -10°C limit of sodium chloride (rock salt) solutions.
- Road Guard Plus™ is a liquid anti-icing agent containing calcium chloride and a highly effective, organic-based corrosion inhibitor. This organic corrosion inhibitor protects concrete and road infrastructure, equipment and vehicles while delivering the highest quality of winter road management.
- Lab tests show that our proprietary Road Guard Plus™ corrosion inhibitor package is up to 84% less corrosive than traditional rock salt brine. It is also 5.3 times less corrosive than uninhibited magnesium chloride on an effective ice-melt equivalency.
- When used by the City of Edmonton anti-icing pilot since March of 2018, Road Guard Plus™ was applied in small quantities to select arterial roads at select snow events, before the snow fell. Roads treated with the solution stayed bare longer, road surface friction increased and stopping distances were reduced.
- Manufactured in Alberta by Tiger Calcium and delivered by our dedicated transportation fleet, supply of Road Guard Plus™ is ensured throughout the season.
