Liquid De-Icers


The process of de-icing can be done in a number of ways. A common method for de-icing and also for prevention of ice formation is to use liquid de-icers. The primary advantage is they are environmentally friendly and provide for low corrosion. Some areas to use this type of product are places like sidewalks, steps, loading docks, ramps, doorways, parking lots, or a walking platform. It is preferred often over granular deicer agents because it does not leave a residue behind. It is non-toxic and ready to use. The user does not need to mix or dilute it. You can use it before or after a storm. It allows for up to 48 hours of activity prior to the storm. Ideal locations for this deicer are:

Use hand held sprayers for application of this product. One Gallon of this chemical is needed per 800-1,000 sq.ft. to get good coverage, Some snow / ice will dissipate on its own, otherwise a shovel is all you need. No heavy equipment is needed for removal of snow or ice. Productivity and efficiency is the main benefit. As an example, if a driveway normally takes one hour to clear without the de-icer, then it would take 10 minutes if applied 48 hours before a storm hits.
