Envirothaw is a new product that offers an alternative to traditional de-icers like rock salt and anti-freeze. It is also a lot less corrosive than salt and can be used on pattern imprinted concrete without any problems. It claims to work in temperatures down to -55 degrees celcius, where rock salt is useless as saltwater re-freezes at around -18 degrees. It comes in liquid and granular forms, and is non-toxic to children, pets and vegitation.
It can be used in many commercial and non-commercial areas, including roads and motorways, pavements and walkways, driveways and patios, and service stations and forecourts. It is fast acting, and can continue to work for up to 48 hours after application. A standard 4kg tub covers around 45 square meters, which is about the size of the average driveway.
The product appeared on BBC’s Dragon’s Den in November last year, and although they were impressed by the product and Theo Paphitis offered more than the amount the owner wanted, he also wanted 50% of the business which the owner did not agree to, and no deal was struck.
