Be Nice, De-Ice: XYNYTH Manufacturing Corp. Partners with Canada Post in Winter Safety Campaign.

XYNYTH Manufacturing Corp. was thrilled when Canada Post chose to promote their GroundWorks (Organic) Natural Icemelter through this campaign. “One of the reasons homeowners are loathe to use icemelter is that it has a bad rap,” says one XYNYTH team member. “The old standby, rock salt, causes more trouble than it fixes. Rock salt is very detrimental to concrete, landscaping and the environment. It’s also dangerous to use around children and pets.” Unfortunately, it’s letter carriers who pay the price. Homeowners don’t de-ice in an effort to preserve the condition of their façades, but create skating rinks in their driveways. Read More

There are many people in the marketplace today who want to buy environmentally friendly products. The challenge, however, is that a number of these consumers don’t want to spend extra money,” Wice said. “To answer this challenge, XYNYTH created Arctic ECO Green Icemelter ™ , using a special encapsulation process. We take sodium chloride and encapsulate it with CMA (Cal- cium Magnesium Acetate), which helps negate the neg- ative side effects of the sodium. Then we multi-encapsulate the granules again with potassium ac- etate, so that every granule of sodium going into the ground is buffered by potassium, a major ingredient in fertilizer. Read More

Strategies for Dealing With Roof Ice

Snow covered roofs and sparkling icicles are beautiful on Christmas cards, but if it is your roof that's sagging under the weight of ice build-up, or if you have melt-water dripping down your interior walls, the scene rapidly loses its appeal. But how do you deal with ice on your roof? It's not as if it's a sidewalk which you can easily apply icemelter to, and safely shovel off.


The most common problem for home owners when it comes to ice build-up on a sloped roof is known as the ice dam phenomenon. The portion of your roof that is over your living area is likely to be warmer than the edges of your roof - the overhang - which is typically the same temperature as the ambient winter air.

Salt Damage in the Landscape

Each year, a single lane of well-traveled highway can receive 40-80 tons of rock salt per mile. Unfortunately, these continuing annual applications of salt can have major detrimental effects on the environment, affecting water-courses, plants and especially trees.


Salt damages trees through two pathways: via airborne salt spray, as on a busy highway, and via the soil. Salt spray that lands on a dormant twig can enter the tissue through leaf scar and kill the dormant bud.


When salt in the soil dissolves, it separates into sodium and chloride ions. The ions act differently to damage the tree. Read More
