SuperMix is a blend of anti-icing/deicing chemicals. Mark DeVries, the Maintenance Superintendent for the McHenry County Illinois Division of Transportation, developed a system to make SuperMix, that they use for anti-icing and as a pre-wet solution.
I had the opportunity to speak with Mark about SuperMix and anti-icing in general.
Thanks to Mark for taking the time speak with us.
There are a few pictures of the McHenry County system and equipment in the Photo Gallery.

Based on Mark’s discussion of their anti-icing program, I would like to create a series of podcasts that focus on anti-icing. Tell us about your anti-icing program and share with us what you’ve learned and what works for you. Send me an email, or leave me a voice message on the comment line at 206-309-0845, and we’ll set up a time for you to share your anti-icing program with us.
