Azek and salt

Posted by hopesprings (My Page) on

We just rebuilt our porch & steps with Azek. It's on the north side of the house and gets little to no sunshine in winter, and I'm noticing it's slippery when we get snow/ice - even after I've shoveled it. Does anyone know if salting the steps will damage the Azek material? And if so, what other options do I have to make the steps safe for use?
