Use caution when using a sidewalk deicer that contains chloride around your synthetic turf. Chloride has characteristics that breakdown the UV protection of the product. This could cause discoloration and a break down in the fibers. We recommend using a deicing product that contains Calcium magnesium acetate (CMA). CMA has a PH level around 6 which is about the same as tap water. Because it is less corrosive, it does not cause a breakdown of the sidewalk itself and has a minimal effect on the environment.
As always please contact your Account Manager with any questions or concerns about your turf or future projects.
