The advantages of non-corrosive deicer


OMEX Deicers

Although many domestic snow and ice clearance problems can be addressed with salt-based products, industrial situations require a more specialised, non-corrosive deicer solution.

OMEX manufactures and supplies a comprehensive range of non-corrosive, biodegradable deicing products. This selection of non-hazardous, non-toxic materials includes everything from liquid deicers for roads and walkways, to solid granular deicers for use in areas with limited access and spreading issues. Liquid deicers offer amazing application accuracy with rapid, long lasting performance, solids can be applied with conventional spreading equipment or manually.

The benefits of using OMEX deicers


  • Minimise the effects of corrosion on important structural elements like concrete and steel
  • Minimise the effects of chloride toxicity and nutrient absorption in aquatic and biological systems, e.g. rivers, lakes and biological effluent treatment plants
  • Minimise the effect of soil swelling, reuced soil stability, descreased permeability, increased salinity and increased potential for erosion
  • Minimise the effects of acidification of groundwater
  • Minimise the effects of osmotic stress, flowering and seed germination, shoot growth and nutritional vulnerabilities to foliars and vegetation
  • Control ice to lower temperatures, as chloride-based deicers have temperature limitations


– Highly biogdegradable due to their organic base and bioavailability, providing easily digested COD content for biological efluent treatment systems


– Products that can be used as a proactive, preventative application “anti-icing” as well as a reactive application “de-icing”


– Highly effective solids; once applied will cause a temperature rise small enough to deice faster. As a result, over time lower application quantities will be required, ie lower usage on second application when deicing


– Powerful performance with lower dose rates


– Active at low temperatures, significantly lower than salt


– No abrasive effect on surface or line markings
