Testimonials and Case Studies

"I am writing to express my satisfaction with the winter maintenance program that Innovative Surface has provided my town over the past thirteen years. We have been using the Brown magic Pre Treated salt with great success. Previously we used salt and sand blends and put down a lot of material. Eliminating the sand in our winter mix was the first step in eliminating unnecessary material on the road which caused dust and extensive clean up in the spring. This has been completely eliminated, saving us time, money and the need to broom off the wasted sand in the spring. We have also significantly reduced our application rate resulting in less material in the environment.

We found the roads stayed bare longer with the residual of the Magic liquid left on the roadways sometimes working well into the next storm. On several occasions our neighboring towns would have to go out a second time and salt again, our roads would still be bare. Also when we are salting the roads the salt stays on the roadway and doesn’t bounce off. The greater melting performance of the pretreated salt was a huge difference when the temperature dropped in to the teens and single digits as this product performs much better than salt in the colder temperatures. I have also noticed less corrosion on my equipment since we began using Magic treated salt exclusively. We fill our salt barn in the spring for the following season and the mixed salt doesn’t get hard over the summer like it used to before using Magic. When I first started using Magic some of my neighboring towns would call me and ask what are you using on your roads? You are making me look bad!

I am extremely pleased with the material, the sales staff, timely delivery and ease of ordering."
