Apart from the methods of cracking ice by extra-heavy lawn rollers and sweeping the cracked ice away directly, we can melt thick ice with the assistance of chemical agent.

Generally, 45kg (about 100 pound) Urea can be scattered on 280 km (about 3000 sq.ft.) synthetic turf, and the ice will melt in half an hour, and the melted ice should be washed away then. However, the Urea can not melt ice when the temperature is below 17 centi-degrees (0 F). Besides, no salt, mineral salt or other corrodent and poisonous chemical substances are proper to melt the ice on the artificial lawns. As the Urea is slightly deleterious to human eyes, please wash you eye with plenty of clean water immediately if gotten into your eyes.
