Product Reviews
By Lynne

Have used this product for many years with great results. Delivery was good and in a timely manner.

By JAMES STEWART

As yet not have any snow or ice. Had a few days of frost though and my imprinted concrete drive was slippery. Rapid Thaw Melt Ice pellets gave an instant grip and melted the frost very quickly with no staining to the driveway. I am confident that this product will work well in harsher conditions.

By Carolyn Stuart

This product works very well. We have a coloured concrete drive and rapid thaw continues to work for many days after application. Also it does not take the colour out of the drive. I would highly recommend this product

Product Description

RAPID THAW - Eco-friendly De-icer for Driveways, Patios & Paths.


*** PLANT SAFE***

Keeping driveways, patios and paths free from ice can be a big problem in the winter months. Even using traditional ice clearing methods such as rock salt only works for a short period. Effective de-icing of a driveway or path is essential so they are safe to walk on during very cold periods. Available in 5kg, 10kg and 20kg tubs.

Composed of a combination of 3 chlorides - sodium, calcium and magnesium - it is effective at temperatures as low as -18C. The 6mm granule spreads easily and works quickly to remove ice as well as preventing freezing. The de-icing effect last up to 12 hours, so twice daily applications will maintain roads, car parks and walkways in passable condition.

The granules contain corrosion inhibitors that reduce metal and concrete erosion by up to 80% compared with standard rock salt. Fast acting, durable and effective at temperatures as low as -18C. Recommended for any more sensitive installations.

Melting snow and ice on driveways, paths and patios has been a problem for many years but there is now an eco-friendly solution far more effective than rock salt. Smartseal now offers a faster, cleaner and more environmentally friendly de-icing solution for driveways, patios and any other hard standing surfaces. Rapid Thaw is the efficient, effective de-icing alternative to rock salt that leaves no dirty, messy residue and clears snow and ice quickly. The mucky residue from rock salt that is easily walked into homes and commercial premises, can cause unwanted dirty marks, staining and damage to carpets and flooring.

 The product starts working immediately after encountering ice, frost or snow, Rapid Thaw's unique formulation generates heat, that quickly melts snow and ice instantly reducing the risk of slipping or falling on icy surfaces. Rapid Thaw can be used on many external ice covered surfaces and most frequently as a driveway de-icer, path de-icer as well as a decking de-icer.

 Rapid Thaw is simple to apply and works at far lower temperatures than other de-icers such as rock salt. Importantly, unlike salt or grit, if applied to a sealed surface such as a drive or patio, Rapid Thaw will not damage, erode or reduce the sealers lifespan. In complete contrast to rock salt, it will not damage concrete based surfaces or paving.

Response from Rick

Q: Can this product be used on a 16 century heritage courtyard? Also when entering the building is it safe to then walk on polished wooden floors?

A: We have not received any adverse reports when this product has been used in conjunction with polished wood floors. It would certainly not damage an old courtyard. Hope that helps.
