How to use
- Remove excess snow if more than 5 cm (2 in.) deep.
- Apply at a 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.
When to use
Dry Powdery Snow: Can be shoveled or swept and may not require the use of Alaskan® Pet Friendly Ice Melter.
Sleet/Freezing Rain: Apply Alaskan® Pet Friendly Ice Melter early to prevent ice buildup.
Wet/Heavy Snow: Apply as soon as wet/heavy snow begins falling to prevent it from bonding. When more than 5 cm (2 in.) accumulates, shovel excess snow and slush away before reapplying Alaskan® Pet Friendly Ice Melter.
Large Accumulations of Snow: Anytime the snowfall amounts to more than 5 cm (2 in.), plow or shovel first. Then use Alaskan® Pet Friendly Ice Melter to melt the stubborn layer of ice or hard packed snow that remains.

First aid treatment
Contains urea. If swallowed, call a Poison Control Centre or doctor immediately. Do not induce vomiting. If in eyes, rinse with water for 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses if present. Hold eyelids open during rinsing. If on skin, rinse well with water. If eye or skin irritation persists, seek medical attention.
Alaskan® Pet Friendly 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 increase 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, the use of ice melter may carry some risk of surface spalling.
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 for traction only, to reduce the risk of slips and falls.
Keep container tightly closed. Prolonged storage in conditions of high humidity may cause product to clump or liquify.
