    Sand vs Straight Salt Application for De-Icing
    Abrasives have no melting effect for deicing operations, in fact research by the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and the University of Wisconsin suggests that sand inhibits the melting process of deicing materials. 
    - University of Wisconsin Study

    "Evidence is becoming more conclusive that sand is not environmentally safe to use as a traction agent. In Colorado, if they are forced to use sand on the roadways, state law says it has to be cleaned up within 48 hours. The particulate matter that is introduced into the atmosphere during sand spreading operations is harmful to lungs.
    Some authorities on deicing (mostly from studies done at various educational institutions) predict that sand will be outlawed in most states within the next 20 years." 
    - j. allin - Industry Consultant
    “… applying abrasives dry is of limited value in providing lasting friction enhancement. This represents a substantial change in current practice. Nonetheless, the results of a variety of studies are unequivocal in finding that abrasives applied to roads where significant traffic travels at high speeds are swept off the road rapidly, remaining in place (and providing friction enhancement) for somewhere between 10 and 100 vehicle passages, at most.” A “solution” that dissipates after one or a few dozen cars pass is hardly a solution at all"
     
    - Iowa Department of Transportation and the Iowa Highway Research Board
     
    "Studies show that the effects of sanding are temporary, whether spread dry or prewetted. Abrasives do little to improve driving conditions on roads with high traffic volume. When dry sand is spread, 30% of it immediately scatters. Over time, cars usually displace most of the remaining sand. As few as 8 to 12 vehicles can sweep it from snow covered highway surfaces. Even with light traffic, friction gained from dry sand is quickly diminished."
     
    - University of New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center
    "Don't overlook salt's anti-skid value. Tests conducted in cooperation with the National Safety Council show that salt, applied at normal deicing rates, gives as much anti-skid protection as abrasives. The anti-skid effect of salt is immediate as it starts melting snow or ice."
