PELADOW* (calcium chloride pellets) is a well known ice melt product capable of melting at -25°F below zero. For safer sidewalks and steps you can't beat PELADOW Premier Snow and Ice Melter. In order for any deicer to work, it must become a solution. The solution (brine) provides the deicing action, not the solid material. PELADOW works fast because it attracts moisture from its surroundings, and quickly turns into a solution. Other commonly-used deicers can't do this. They need direct contact with a moisture source which, of course, isn't readily available at freezing temperatures.
In addition, PELADOW is the only commonly-used
deicer which is exothermic in its melting action. PELADOW gives off
heat while dissolving, which speeds the melting process. And PELADOW
keeps working even when temperatures go as low as -25°F. So when we
compare the speed of other deicers to PELADOW, there's really no contest.
White odorless pellets of calcium chloride. PELADOW* goes into solution fast by attracting moisture from the atmosphere and its surroundings. When it goes into solution it gives off heat to melt ice and snow, while many competitive ice melters actually need heat to go into a deicing solution. For example: PELADOW* when compared to rock salt in equal amounts melts ice over 7 times faster 10°F.
