Blue Heat Snow & Ice Melter
Blue Heat Snow & Ice Melter with Heat Generating Pellets is considered to be one of the highest grade ice melters. It has enough Calcium Chloride to melt snow and ice down to 25 degrees below zero. In addition, it also has a slight blue tint. The blue tint lets consumers know where the product has already been applied thereby avoiding an over-application. Blue Heat also draws moisture from the environment allowing it to work quickly, even in very cold, dry conditions. Blue Heat does not chemically attack concrete and is much safer to use than any lower grade ice melters.
Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA)
Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA) is made of dolomitic lime and ascetic acid. It is the only ice melter that is biodegradable, non-toxic, environmentally safe and pet friendly. However, it is not sold at regular retail stores because of its impractical price. It is mainly used on areas that need special protection from the environment, ie. airports, bridges, tunnels, etc. Though it is by far the safest ice melter, it does not work well when temperatures dip below 20 degrees.

Pellets of Fire
Pellets of Fire, popularly known as Calcium Chloride Pellets has been recognized by the industry as a very effective ice melter. It melts upon contact and is a powerful substance especially during overnight usage. Most de-icers become virtually ineffective once the temperature drops below +20 degrees while Pellets of Fire keeps on melting even at temperatures as cold as 25 degrees below zero. It does not chemically attack concrete when used as directed.
Rock Salt is the most popular ice melting product on the market.
It is readily available and in times of an ice melt shortage, it is usually the last product remaining on the shelf. It is used as the principal de-icer on highways and city streets nationwide. Salt has always been the cheapest ice melter and is certainly not considered to be from the “safer” products. Its attractive price is the primary reason that salt is still a marketable item.
