When you need a de-icing agent, you can choose gritting salt in a dry form or brine. Brine is nothing more that salt dissolved in water, however it has many useful properties. Brine can be applied quicker, more accurately and more economically than traditional gritting salt.
Why? Brine sticks to the road surface more effectively and less of it ends up in the verges. You therefore need less salt. Brine can also be applied easily to narrow or hard to reach locations such as cycle paths or car parks.
