CAN I MAKE LIQUID DE-ICER???

A question often asked of us is they can liquefy our Winter Warrior Runway Control® De-icer and the answer is YES you can!  It is very easy.

You simply use a mixer of 25% product to 75% water and you will have a product that works down to -19°C. This is great for spraying on surfaces, and yet maintains  all the features and benefits of a solid icemelter.  Winter Warrior Runway Control® is totally biodegradable, environmentally friendly and completely non-corrosive.  It is the perfect product to spread anywhere you have metal and ice and need to melt the ice.  Great for inside large walk-in or drive-in freezers as well.

The dangers of Calcium Chloride

It may be 2016, but there’s still companies out there trying to market their calcium chloride icemelters as eco and pet friendly. Not only is this disingenuous to the consumer, it could put pets at risk. Calcium chloride is caustic which means it will burn skin on contact, making it unsafe to use around animals. Not to mention all the damage it will cause to the surrounding vegetation.

A much safer alternative is GroundWorks Natural™. GroundWorks™ is completely safe on skin and paws, and can even be safely ingested. And since it is fertilizer based, it will help benefit plants and shrubs while being tough on ice. Find out more at XYNYTH.COM

Its not rocket science!

Consumers are often in a rush when applying icemelter and usually do not follow the instructions.  Icemelters help to remove ice by breaking it down – first into smaller chunks, and finally into a liquid. Icemelters should not be confused with snow removal. Icemelters or deicers are designed to melt and break down the ice accumulations not the snow accumulations. In situations where there is ice and snow build up, it is best to remove the snow, using mechanical means such as shovels or snow blowers, and then use an ice melter to break down the ice into slush.  Most of our products only require ¼-1/2 cup per square yard/meter.  If in doubt, follow the instructions!
