Anti-Icing Surface Overlay – Safelane®

SafeLane® surface overlay is a technology unlike anything now being used. Its patented combination of epoxy and aggregate acts like a rigid sponge, storing de-icing chemicals inside and automatically releasing them as snow and ice conditions develop. The SafeLane® overlay system works as follows:

  • Prior to SafeLane® application, a common de–icer is applied to the SafeLane® surface by normal application measures.
  • The unique aggregate in the SafeLane® technology absorbs the de–icing chemical like a reservoir until the next weather event.
  • When weather conditions dictate, the aggregate proactively releases the de–icing chemical before ice or frost can form.
  • SafeLane® surface overlay helps effectively lower the freezing point of the road surface and helps prevent ice or frost from forming. It also effectively “de bonds” any packed snow that forms on the road surface.

The stored de-icing chemical in the aggregate has been shown to be effective through multiple weather events, before it needs replenishing
