    Hey all,

    Was just searching around the web looking for information about concrete damage caused by deicers. Found this site which had some really eye opening information regarding the different materials we use out there to keep the walks clear. Let me know what you guys think.

    Who knew urea was more damageing that anything else we use???

    Henry K has a ton of great info. I had a link to his site in one of my past Snowplowing Newsletters.

    Actually chuck I started searching first here then your site looking for the information. Also checked sima but since i just joined i have to read up on how to register there. Finally found it through yahoo search engine.

    BTW, I registered on your directory a month or so ago and still not there. I was the guy that did that job BRL got from being on your site. Do I need to reregister or what???
