For regions that experience snow, ice and freezing rains during the winter months, de-icing salts are a common method of keeping road safe. But these road salts have been proven to be hazardous to the environment. Read more about the corrosion threat of road salts that are used for de-icing roads in our latest article on Ezine. We would love to hear your thoughts on the use of road salts in your area. Click here for the article

In the first part of this two part blog entry, we highlighted how road salts cause corrosion to architecture and buildings. However, the level of corrosion caused by road salts is not only determined by the ingredients and distribution of particles, but also by the materials used in the construction of the architecture and buildings. Aluminium is considered a highly corrosive resistant material; mainly because of the protective oxide film used in its construction. Road salts, which contain chlorides, can easily penetrate this protective film and cause corrosion. The only way to prevent corrosion, apart from ensuring that only a … Read More
It is widely recognized, through studies and testing, that the use of road salts causes significant corrosion problems for buildings and architecture. So undeniable is the evidence of road salt corrosion that potential damage is often estimated by using data from coastal architecture corrosion caused by natural sea salt. Basically, that means that comparing the weather and humidity in an area where road salts are used, to a similar coastal region, provides a real world model of how much damage results from the use of road salts. Similarly, it has been found that the use of magnesium chloride is a … Read More
On March 4th, 2013, Cypher Environmental was asked to give a presentation at the Canada-China Green Mining Innovation Workshop. The workshop was hosted by the Natural Resources Canada Minerals and Metals Sector to improve communication between Canada and China to improve green practices in the mining sector and to promote mutually beneficial business partnerships between the two countries. A copy of the PowerPoint presentation is available for download. Enjoy a few photos from the presentation:

Last year’s event attracted over 30,000 attendees from 125 countries around the world with over 1,000 exhibitors representing every facet of … Read More
While there are a variety of competitive products on the market, especially here in North America, most do no possess the same environmental qualities that our Cypher Dust Stop products can attest to. Other alternatives in the product category are road salts, more specifically and primarily Magnesium Chloride, followed closely by Calcium Chloride, both of which are highly corrosive products. The main attraction to these products is their low cost, which is admittedly lower than the options Cypher provides. However as time goes on and environmental issues become more and more in public view, customers are more willing to pay … Read More
