Safe Melt Deicing Liquid

What is Safe Melt?

It is an all-natural environmentally friendly deicing liquid made from the by-products of the forestry industry added to a base of calcium. It is non toxic, water soluble, non flammable, biodegradable and less corrosive than pure water.

When should I use Safe Melt?

If you have typical snow packed or icy areas which are tough to maintain, pretreat with Safe Melt deicing Liquid hours before a storm to create a protective coating on the pavement to prevent the bonding of snow & ice on surfaces.

Deicer during precipitation:

Spray Safe Melt Deicing Liquid onto salt to create a coated salt which encapsulates the salt reducing the corrosion and taking the melting power down to -20 degrees with no refreeze. Use in truck spreaders or on sidewalks. It can be used in the liquid form in saddle tanks during salting operations to enhance performance of salt at the spinners.

How does IB work?

Unlike rock salt or pellets that lay on the surface and melt from the top down typically dissolving quickly, Safe Melt sinks to the bottom surface level, melting as it goes down and releases its coating which breaks the bond between the snow/ice and the pavement for easy and complete cleanup.

Do I still have to shovel or scrape?

Yes, unfortunately there is still no “bullet proof” solution to snow removal. Safe Melt will help reduce the amount of effort that you will have to exert for cleanup, by breaking the bond between the snow or ice and the pavement. You will find that snow and ice peel off more easily and quickly. This reduces your work load considerably.

Is Safe Melt deicing liquid safe around pets and children?

Yes, it is nontoxic and biodegradable.

Will it work below zero?

Yes, it has been proven to be an effective deicer at temperatures down to negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can Safe Melt be used on my roof?

Yes, it is non corrosive and is a fast solution for removing ice dams and can be applied to just about any surface including rubber, roof shingles, slate and wood.
