How To Remove Frozen Ice On Artificial Lawn

- May 09, 2018 -

Normally, artificial turf will not be affected by freezing because the ice will automatically melt and be evaporated. However, in order to make the playground available when needed, it is necessary to remove the frozen ice from the artificial turf. The removal of ice is quite difficult. What should we do with this situation?

   Therefore, in order to remove turf without freezing, the most common method at present is to crush the ice on the artificial turf with a heavy roller. After the ice cubes are crushed, they can be cleaned directly from the site. Usually when it is out of the sun, and when the ice or frost is not very thick, it will melt quickly and it will have little effect.

   However, if the frozen layer is thick, there is no other way for a long time. Only use chemicals to help it melt. However, it should be noted that no matter what chemicals are used on the artificial turf, some residue will be left and the site should be washed when the weather permits.

   If the ice layer on the artificial turf is relatively thick, it can be used to help freeze and thaw by spreading urea. About 3,000 square feet of urea need to be laid out for 100 Ibs of urea (for reference only, it can be adjusted in different situations and in different areas). After the urea is sown, the ice on the field needs to be half-full before it can melt. The melted ice cubes need to be cleaned with a washing machine, rubber cleaner, sweeper or other suitable equipment. Urea does not play a role at -12°C and does not melt ice at -17°C at all. A small amount of urea residue will remain on the site and will be cleaned when the weather permits.

   When spreading urea on the artificial turf, be careful not to let urea get into your eyes because it may cause slight eye damage. If you accidentally enter the athlete's eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water.

 In the process of spreading, try not to use chemicals that may harm or be toxic to the artificial turf. Do not use salts, mineral salts, calcium chlorides, other corrosives, and toxic chemicals. Heavy equipment should not be parked on the site for long periods of time. This can damage the artificial turf.
