When to use
Dry Powdery Snow: Can be shoveled or swept and may not require the use of Alaskan® Premium Ice Melter.
Sleet/Freezing Rain: Apply Alaskan® Premium Ice Melter early to prevent ice build-up.
Wet/Heavy Snow: Apply as soon as wet/heavy snow begins falling to prevent it from bonding.
When more than 5 cm (2 in.) accumulate, shovel excess snow and slush away before reapplying Alaskan® Premium Ice Melter.
Large Accumulations of Snow: Anytime the snowfall amounts to more than 5 cm (2 in.), plow or shovel first. Then use Alaskan® Premium Ice Melter to melt the stubborn layer of ice or hard packed snow that remains.
- Alaskan® Premium Ice Melter 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® Premium Ice Melter is done at the user’s own risk.
- 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.
