Materials and Technologies for Winter Road Maintenance in Lithuania

Produits et Technologies pour la Viabilite Hivernale en Lituanie

Winter season in Lithuania lasts 5-6 months. As in many European and other countries in the world, traditional materials are used: sodium chloride, calcium chloride, their mixes or more ecological products manufactured on their basis. On gravel roads or low-volume roads the mixes of sodium chloride and frictional materials (sand, crushed stone) are used. For maintenance purposes (to reduce slipperiness) a wet salt technology is applied or spreading of chloride-frictional material mixes.
