Ice B’ Gone

Magic Liquid

IBG Magic Liquid saves you money, time and labor. This patented formula may be applied to your salt or ours. Our liquid product can be sprayed onto regular rock salt, transforming it into IBG Magic Solid. By applying IBG Magic Liquid directly onto paved surfaces, ice and snow will not bond, black ice is eliminated, will not degrade or corrode vehicles, and slip and falls are reduced.

Our non-toxic, bio-degradable formula has a corrosion index lower than distilled water. IBG Magic Liquid can be applied directly to paved surfaces in advance of a winter storm, or can be sprayed onto regular rock salt, transforming it into IBG Magic Solid, a highly effective ice melting product.

Features and

Benefits

If IBG Magic Liquid is applied directly to paved surfaces in advance of a winter storm, any of the following results will occur:

  • Black ice is eliminated

  • Due to it's residual effect, snow and ice will not bond to paved surfaces

  • It melts ice faster

  • It works longer

  • environmentally friendlier than salt

  • It is less corrosive than distilled water

  • It is DEC approved

  • It is safe for concrete parking structures

  • It even neutralizes rust

Application Method for IBG Magic Liquid

Anti-Icing

IBG Magic Liquid is used extensively on the New York State Thruway system and the Garden State Parkway (New Jersey) as an anti-icing agent. IBG Magic Liquid is applied using a spray tank system with a spray bar. There are two types of spray patterns which are used, depending on traffic flow and desired effect.
  1. When correctly applied prior to the snow or ice storm event, IBG Magic Liquid prevents snow and ice from bonding to the pavement.
  2. Plowing removes all packed snow and ice. Black ice cannot form, as long as there is no major run off.
  3. IBG Magic Liquid will not harm vehicles or any type of pavement and is environmentally much friendlier than traditional methods and materials.
These significant benefits must be considered only in terms of the substantial commitment to training crews, use of precise temperature monitoring equipment, and careful application. Our tank/spray system easily converts from anti-icing to de-icing.

Application Method for IBG Magic Liquid

De-Icing

Ordinary rock salt is transformed when treated with IBG Magic Liquid. Hard pack and bonded ice are quickly eliminated from paved surfaces. Even though rock salt eventually dissolves in the melting process, the IBG Magic Liquid remains in the pavement surface and will prevent black ice from forming. This will continue until it is diluted by run-off or precipitation. The treatment process is accomplished by pre-treating stockpiles of rock salt or salt/sand or all sand.
  1. Application Rates: Between 8 gallons/ton for all rock salt and up to 10 gallons/tons for all sand stockpiles. Rates will vary for mixed stockpiles depending on the sand/salt ratio.
  2. General Procedures: We bring our tank and spray unit to your stockpile. You will provide a loader and operator to turn the stockpile as the IBG Magic Liquid is being applied. This is required to ensure uniform treatment of the entire stockpile.
  3. Application Time: Estimated 30 minutes for a 25 ton pile (typical tri-axle truckload), start to finish.

Application Method for IBG Magic Liquid

Pre-Wetting

IBG Magic Liquid is an effective on-board pre-wetting agent for rock salt or salt/sand or all sand. It is safer on concrete than traditional Ice Melters, and reduces damage to curbside grassed areas or plants, and continues to melt ice to below -35F.
  1. Application Rates: Varies depending on your system and it also requires some experimentation to properly monitor applications.
  2. General Procedures: IBG Magic Liquid can be used in any on-board system. However, because of its viscosity, all filters and screens must be removed from your system; otherwise clogging may occur. It is completely safe to handle and unlike typical on-board liquid chemicals, it will not corrode or degrade mechanical or electrical components on your vehicle or equipment.
