This product is an environmentally responsible solution to help fight a winter storm before it arrives. When applied to sidewalks, steps, ramps and traffic areas before a storm, it will prevent the bonding of snow and ice to the surface. This means a fast and effective clean-up after the storm. It can also be used on metals such as walks, fire escapes and ladders used to access electrical, communication, and other similar equipment that needs to be maintained during the winter. It reduces the overall cleaning costs due to the use of granular ice melt.
