Protect Your Concrete Driveway From Freeze Thaw Damage
"Poor quality surfaces may not withstand the stress associated with the cycles of freezing and thawing that can be accelerated with ice melter use. Do not use ice removers on porous concrete or concrete less than 2 years old."
Ammonium-based ice-melting products like ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate are fertilizers. They are not recommended for use as ice melters, as they have been found to chemically attack and damage concrete.
Snow and ice removal seems like a non-stop battle throughout the winter. Have you ever noticed how it's always easier to scoop your driveway as soon as snow has fallen? This is true because the longer it sits on the concrete the stronger the bond it makes with the moisture inside the concrete.
Concrete Remedy makes snow and ice easier to remove. It does this by setting up a waterproof barrier inside the concrete. By keeping moisture out of the concrete, the snow and ice just lie on the surface and can be removed much easier. For best results use Concrete Remedy DS to internally seal the concrete and then seal the surface with Concrete Remedy Top Seal.
Concrete Remedy prevents spalling, scaling and hairline cracking by reducing the effects of the freeze-thaw cycle.
Concrete Remedy DS does not fill visible cracks larger than about .75mm, but it will permanently waterproof poured concrete slabs and walls. Concrete Remedy DS contains a proprietary catalyst which "pursues moisture" in concrete, and upon contact reacts with the "free" alkali (lime) and calcium hydroxides (already in concrete or masonry) to form a silica gel inside the concrete. This gel moves via capillary action deep into the slab. The gel dries hard like glass inside the concrete turning the entire depth penetrated into a solid mass.
This internal, permanent seal and water barrier also hardens and dust-proofs the surface while increasing the compressive strength.
The graphic below shows that there is NO SURFACE BUILD-UP of product which can peel or wear off. This is one of the reasons why Deep Seal is superior to the surface coating sealers typically available in stores.
