A question commonly asked is what are the effects of icemelt on concrete?
Icemelters which contain aluminum chloride, ammonium sulfate, calcium sulfate, magnesium chloride (MAG), ammonium nitrate, ammonium chloride, magnesium sulfate or sodium cyanide, will attack concrete and are best avoided. Additionally chemicals like calcium chloride will shorten the natural freeze/thaw cycle in concrete, greatly increasing the risk of scaling and flaking damage. Using an icemelter like GroundWorks Natural Icemelter™, keeps the melted ice in a liquid state for a much longer period of time and thereby extends the freeze/thaw cycle reducing the risk of scaling and flaking damage. Additionally GroundWorks Natural Icemelter™ contains no chemicals which would affect the concrete in any way.
For more information on the effects of icemelt on concrete please refer to the Icemelter & Concrete article in the Icemelter resource center on www.XYNYTH.com.
As many of you already know we were hit by an extended period of snow and ice on the West Coast of Canada.
During this time many of our competitors failed to keep up with the demand, which resulted in lead times ranging in the weeks and sometimes months.
However, we were able to ensure all of our customers received their icemelter and were also able to secure many new customers as well. You can be rest assured that all our warehouses will remain well stocked throughout the winter, no matter the weather conditions.

It’s time to gear up for the winter season, and it’s going to
be a cold one!
This year’s weather prediction, brought to you by the Old Farmer’s Almanac, has declared this year to be a rough one (and we mean ROUGH). Wherever you are in North America, you can expect it to be colder and icier, with even MORE snowfall than normal. Be ready for the most snow to fall from mid-December to mid-January; however it has been predicted that the BONE CHILLING COLD will be most prominent in February of 2017! Are you ready for it?

Recently, The Snow Removal Service Liability Limitation Act was signed into law in Illinois.
What does this mean?
The Snow Magazine (http://www.snowmagazineonline.com/…/illinois-legislative-a…/)
says that “This law now makes indemnification agreements and hold-harmless language passing liability from the property owner or property managers to the contractor, null and void in Illinois”. Additionally, the ASCA (Accredited Snow Contractors Association) has succeeded in getting its Bill introduced in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Indiana. The Snow Industry highlights the importance of property owners hiring
qualified snow contractors who actually document their services and also using high quality icemelters, such as XYNYTH’s safe, powerful and environmentally friendly product line.
