Brine is defined as any liquid that is saturated or nearly full of chloride. This could mean that any dry chemical freeze point depressant that contains chlorides, such as Magnesium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Potassium Chloride or Calcium Chloride when mixed with a liquid would be considered a brine. For the purposes of this discussion, we will concentrate on a brine made from the mixture of sodium chloride (rock salt) and water. This is the brine most often used in the state of Iowa for prewetting and anti-icing operations.
