    I maintain a parking garage and the top floor has a urethane coating and I was wondering what i can use on this that wont hurt the coating. The people that put on the coating said that I cant use calcium chloride and I have use different products and found nothing that works below 0.

    Maybe a liquid? A treated salt product?

    Since they told you what you can't use..........Maybee they could recommend somthing that you can use(I'm betting they won't recommend anything)

    I would look into somthing from the Acetate Family......Maybee CMA

    Give me a call at 800-221-5105 and we can discuss products/pricing but Potassium Acetate (liquid) goes well below 0, so does Sodium Formate (Solid).

    CMA only has a work temp the same as rock salt.

    I have used mag chloride on a roof parking with urethane paint quite successfully. Watch you application rates though.

    Around here they used to use treated salt and most have switched to straight sand with no salt in it to eleminate the chemicals.
