Isoway™ De-icer for Walkways


What Is It?

  • Isoway is a de-icing and an anti-icing agent that is safe, easy to handle, long lasting with visually measured results.
  • It is a liquid ready-to-use formula with 25% Potassium Acetate.
  • It produces no ammonia upon breakdown.
  • Potassium Acetate deicer is approved by Pacific Northwest Snowfighters.
  • The product is available in 10L jugs, 450L and 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • Isoway is for use on footpaths and public thoroughfares and anywhere ice poses a risk to pedestrians and users.
  • Safer for use on concrete, wood and near plants and vegetation. It is also non-harmful to vehicles and equipment.
  • Isoway is supplied as a ready-to-use liquid formula which is easy to handle with no protective clothing required.
  • Unlike salt, Isoway is non-corrosive.
  • Compared to salt, Isoway remains effective on ice at temperatures as low as -25°C.

What To Expect?

  • Isoway rapidly penetrates the snow pack, quickly breaking the bond between ice and the ground surface and allowing easy removal by brushing or shoveling.
  • Isoway remains on the ground to inhibit further ice formation on the treated surfaces.

Application Guidelines

For Ice Prevention:

  • • 15 ml per square metre

For Clearing Established Ice:

  • 30 ml per square metre and repeat until ice is controlled
  • To prevent ice forming, Isoway can be applied before a frost. This will prevent ice formation for 24-48 hours unless washed from the treated surface.
  • Pour straight from the jug or drum into your choice of applicator.
  • For small areas the most convenient way is via a watering can, using a fine hose.
  • For larger areas application by standard sprayer is ideal, from simple hand-pumped garden sprayers to more sophisticated ‘backpack’ sprayers with hand held booms.
