Area of use

As a preventative, spray onto the surfaces to be treated prior to the advent of light snow or ice; choose the rate of coverage from the table below. This will prevent the accumulations of frozen ice or snow. It is important to apply this in time and so attention must be given to weather conditions and forecasting. To melt Ice and snow spray the chosen dilution on to the area to be cleared.


Remove as much ice and snow as is possible using mechanical means. Apply by spray using spray equipment appropriate to the scale of the operation. Contact Chela to discuss spray equipment options.
