What is it?
...a biodegradable alternative solution to rock salt for winter surface treatment, used for confident risk management.
How does it work?
Eco-Thaw comes in a liquid form and can be used as an additive enhancer for more effective traditional application of rock salt. Is increasingly been used on its own as an effective solution for anti-icing preparation for ice or de-icing – removal of compacted snow and ice.
How is it applied?
Being liquid, Eco-Thaw is normally applied with typical spray equipment such as walk-behind applicators, ATV attachments, or stand-alone systems to suit any application, project size or budget.
Where is it used?
Eco-Thaw can be used in any surface and circumstance. Typically roads, steps, walkways and any hard standing areas – not sure? Ask us!
Why use Eco-Thaw?
For rock salt to match the efficiency of Eco-Thaw, it would take 8 passes with a gritting lorry.
Non-Toxic for vegetation, animals and the environment
Eco-Thaw is a non-toxic natural by-product, making it safe to handle, non-corrosive, biodegradable, and safe for vegetation and animals, unlike rock salt!
Traditional rock salt can take all day to be an effective ice and snow solution. Eco-Thaw takes just 30 minutes, and will even debond compacted ice in a single application.
Unlike rock salt, Eco-Thaw lands where you put it, and will not scatter all over passing cars and vegetation.
One time Application
Eco-thaw works immediately upon application, not being dependent upon moisture to bring it into a solution like traditional methods. It requires far less frequent application.
"... It's been used on the Scottish road network and it’s encouraging to see this initial trial deliver positive early results”
"This will be another useful weapon in the armory against the severe winter and in that respect it has got to be welcomed.”
"We are pleased to see such a quick response to the packed ice problem. Trying to second-guess a winter will never be easy, but the more options that road authorities have to keep traffic moving the better.”
