Safe Melt® 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. Safe Melt® is a rust inhibitor.
Safe Melt® can be used as an anti-snow agent prior to a snow or ice storm. It will reduce the accumulation of snow depending upon outside temperature and amount of water content in the snowfall. It is also an excellent deicer as a coated salt which can be applied directly to an ice or snow pack.
Unlike rock salt or pellets that lay on the surface and melt from the top down to the bottom, Safe Melt® sinks to the surface level, melting as it goes down, and spreads out after reaching the surface. This breaks the bond between the snow or ice and the pavement for an easy and complete cleanup.
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 to 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.
One gallon of Safe Melt® can provide the equivalent coverage of 50lbs. of rock salt or pellets. If you choose to use Safe Melt® as anti-snow agent to reduce possible snow accumulation, you will find that a liberal misting can treat two car driveways that measure 20′ by 50′ plus extra walkways or about 1000sq. ft. This is somewhat dependent upon the thickness of the coating being applied to the surface.
When you have mist coated your areas, Safe Melt® has a unique residual reactivation effect that “Teflon” coats your grounds for about 10-14 days provided that it does not rain to wash the Safe Melt® away.
Safe Melt® is non corrosive and can be applied to just about any surface including rubber, roof shingles, new cement, slate, wood or brick.
Yes, Safe Melt® is non toxic. However, we suggest not allowing pets to ingest Safe Melt® because it could cause diarrhea.
Yes, Safe Melt® has been proven to be an effective deicer at temperatures down to negative 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Apply Safe Melt® and give it sufficient time to work before cleaning up your areas.
Yes, do not apply Safe Melt® where the temperature is over 35 degrees Fahrenheit because it can create a slippery surface.
