Not only can IST help you with brine and liquid deicer product manufacturing and / or dissemination needs, we can also help you design custom deicer products matched to your region and concerns. This process always includes IST using our environmental chamber to do freeze point suppression and precipitation of solids testing down to temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius. IST can help you will all your deicer needs, including receiving PNS (Pacific Northwest Snowfighters) approval for your products. IST’s knowledge of PNS testing protocols and approach to product testing is second to none due to Dale Keep’s PNS involvement in group formation, product specification and test protocol writing. Please contact us with any questions or to receive answers to your deicer challenges.
I've worked with Dale on committees, have served on panels with him and heard him deliver in-service training presentations to snowfighter professionals to ensure they have all the tools they need to keep winter roads safe and ensure highway arteries deliver their commercial benefits in the face of winter snow. It is an honor to recommend him to anyone requiring a knowledgeable snow and ice professional. Dick HannemanFormer CEO, Salt Institute
