Q:Can you use this product on colored stamped concrete?
by|Nov 15, 2022
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, I've used it on my concrete porch, and haven't had any problems. However, I do not have any colored stamped concrete around my home. My neighbor suggested this product to me, because it does not destroy concrete. I trust his judgement, because he's always working on his home.

by|Nov 19, 2022

    A:  I would say no, but I have never tried it on colored stamped concrete so I can'r be absolutely sure about it.

    by|Nov 20, 2022

      A:  Yes it’s safe on every surface 

      by|Nov 19, 2022

        A:  Yes you can see the product on every surface until it starts melting the ice

          A:  We have concrete steps and I use this product. I liked it because it was pet friendly as well.  I haven’t had any issues with using this product multiple times.

            A:  First time buying this product. Have used it twice and it does the job on ice. No damage to the brickwork or slabs so far, but that’s with only 2-3 using. Was told by an HD rep that less is more, so I just use a small amount each time. 

            by|Feb 3, 2022

              A:  yes

              by|Jan 31, 2022

                A:  We have found that Safe Paw ice melt is very safe on our stone and mortar front porch, steps and patio. We have had very good success with it the last two winters and it is extremely gentle on our dog's paws.

                      A:  I never tried that but I would think that it would work.  I use it all the time on my front sidewalks to melt the ice.

                                    A:  modified carbonyidiamide crystal, special glycols, non-ionic surfactants accelerants, proprietary traction agents, special inhibitors. I don't know how much this will help you if at all, but these were the ingredients listed on the container. However I can attest that I have used this for several years on concrete pavers, and it has melted the snow and ice effectively without damaging the pavers which can be brutalized by other products.

                                        A:  Probably, but you should always check with your tile installer to make sure. Safe Paw is the only 'de-icer' that does not contain salt - and salt is usually what causes surface degradation problems. Two articles for you to read to help you - one is the ingredient list for Safe Paws; the other is a more general article on de-icers.
