Protect unpaved roads year round with Northern Salt’s road maintenance chlorides. For optimal base stabilization, it is critical to mix calcium chloride or magnesium chloride with aggregate before blading and shaping to achieve maximum density with less compactive effort. With a low freezing point to protect the unpaved surface against frost heave in winter, and low vapor pressure to help retain moisture & bind dust particles together in the summer months, it is the choice of rural communities across the region. An environmentally friendly and cost-effective long-lasting investment, the application of either chloride will continue to work its way through the surface and into the base several inches to consolidate the soil to not only strengthen the road but produce fugitive dust from vehicle traffic.
Application rates vary based on the road base material, amount of traffic, and climate. We look forward to working with you to create a stabilization program specific to your community or projects needs.
