How to Use
- Remove excess snow if more than 5 cm (2 in.) thick.
- Apply Alaskan Melt and Grip using a push type or hand held spreader.
- Apply Alaskan Melt and Grip at a recommended rate of 50 to 100 g per m² (¼ to ½ cup per square yard).
- Do not overapply. Apply evenly and avoid piling.
- Remove melting snow and ice as soon as melting action has loosened ice.
- Reapply to heavy areas of ice.
- Do not pile melting snow and ice containing ice melter in one location where the accumulation will run off on grass or near trees.
- Alaskan Melt and Grip is recommended for use on good quality, air-entrained concrete for cold weather climates as specified by the Portland Cement Association.
- Melting snow and ice increases the frequency of the freeze/thaw cycles that can affect all surfaces. Poor quality surfaces may not withstand the stress associated with these cycles.
- Due to irregularities and inconstancies in finish and porosity, use of ice melter may carry some risk of surface spalling.
- Use of Alaskan Melt and Grip is done at the user’s own risk.
- NOTE: The potential for surface damage can be decreased by promptly removing slush as it is formed.
- If you are unsure of the quality of your concrete or the suitability of using an ice melter on your surface, use sand to reduce the risk of slips and falls.
Ice melter is not recommended on the following surfaces:
- Concrete that is less than 1 year old.
- Patterned, stamped and/or coloured concrete.
- Stone or brick masonry (including flagstone).
- Precast concrete (steps or paving stones).
- Stone or concrete surfaces that are chipped, cracked, spalled or have exposed aggregate.
- Wooden surfaces such as decks.
- Roofs or gutters.
