Editor's Note: The original thread title here was "Magnesuim [sic] Chloride?" I changed it a little bit to give AMG readers a better sense of what this thread's about. It's an interesting discussion.
In a previous thread regarding vehicle inspections Melvin Udall suggested and I para phrase he would endure yearly inspections if we would stop treating the roads with what I believe to be magnesium chloride.
The bus fleet in my school district is a mess with more rust corrosion, brake repairs, gas tanks repairs than ever before and in newer buses. I estimate this is the case in many districts and in the thread previously mentioned I said this treatment is penny wise and pound foolish. I am not sure if the result of this deterioration is due to inferiority of products produced or the result of magnesium chloride.
I would greatly appreciate relative input.
