Icemelt & Concrete

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.

Closed for BC Family Day !

Our Head Office will be closed on Monday, February 13th for BC Family Day.

Family Day was originally created to give people time to spend with their families but it also provides a day off between New Year’s Day and Good Friday as they are approximately three months apart. Family Day is not a National Statutory Holiday, it is only observed in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan and in British Columbia. Family Day is celebrated on the 3rd Monday of February except in BC where it’s the 2nd Monday of February.

Common Family Day activities include skating, playing hockey, snowboarding, skiing and going to various winter festivals.

We have PLEEEEEEENTY of stock

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.

Safe for Pets? … You Bet!

Lucy and Snoopy are totally safe with GroundWorks Natural Icemelter™. It is completely safe for use around children and pets. It is one of the safest icemelters on the market. So when the safety of the four-legged members of your family counts, choose GroundWorks™. Ask for it at your local retailer today, or go to http://xynyth.com/products-tabs/GNI/groundworks-natural.html for more information.

HAPPY CANADIAN THANKSGIVING !

Thanksgiving commemorates the completion and bounty of the harvest long before European explorers and settlers arrived in what is now Canada.

XYNYTH Manufacturing will be closed on Monday, Oct. 10, for Thanksgiving (Canada). All orders will be processed on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
