Calcium Chloride Ice Melt
Calcium Chloride is an effective ice melting salt compound. Salts react exothermically with water to produce heat. This causes the freezing point of water to be reduced below its normal temperature of 0 Celsius. Different salts will have different working ranges, but Calcium Chloride Ice Melt is effective down to around -25C making it much more effective than normal rock salt.
In fact Calcium Chloride works up to 8 times faster than rock salt while having other environmental advantages. Calcium Chloride is safe for use on air entrained concrete surfaces and does not leave a residue which would harm carpets when walked in. This makes Calcium Chloride Ice Melt a great ice melting solution for offices and businesses.
Calcium Chloride Ice Melt can be used to pretreat paths and pavements before freezing occurs. This will effectively prevent ice from forming in the first place. Such a process is commonly known as preventative maintenance and is recommended to all users. However, Calcium Chloride Ice Melt is also useful in treating areas where snow and ice has already occurred and will quickly go to work making paths and steps safer for all users.
Calcium Chloride is also relatively soil safe.
