New Technology Keeps Ice Away and Drivers Safe: Anti-icing and Anti-skid Overlay Reduces Accidents and Protects Assets

SafeLane Surface Overlay was developed at Michigan Technological University for prevention of roadway and bridge icing and skids. Licensed to Cargill in 2003, this mixture of epoxy and aggregate acts as a rigid sponge for standard liquid anti-icing solutions applied to roadways when adverse weather is expected. The overlay automatically releases the chemicals as inclement conditions develop. It also improves surface friction for safer driving year round.
