Ice Melt Comparison By Form

Safe Thaw - Industrial Ice Melt

Winters can turn precarious with constant snowfall, sleet, or even icy, slippery premises. One needs to be prepared to deal with the effects of winter and store necessary ice melt equipment with us in advance. As a business unit or a commercial establishment, treating icy sidewalks and steps can become more accessible with suitable ice melt pellets.

This article hopes to help you pick the correct ice melt for your establishment’s needs so that your premises do not suffer any damage whatsoever.  

Safe Thaw - Ice And Snow Management Solution

Power Thaw Industrial Strength Ice Melt

It is a granular ice melt that comprises a blend of calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and sodium chloride plus AMC. It is a blue and white colored product that comes in a 50lb bag.

Since it comes in a granular form, it takes time to penetrate the surface because it melts slowly.

As we know, salts and chloride of any form are corrosive and can damage concrete, metal, bricks, and asphalt in due course. Furthermore, this combination is very harmful to animals, humans, and even the vegetation around us.

Store Team Liquid Ice Melt

It is a liquid ice melt and deicer that works on wood, gravel, asphalt, sidewalks, construction sites, etc. It comes in all sizes, i.e., drums, jugs, tankers, etc., and contains less salt, chlorides, brine, etc.

Liquid ice melt is used as a pre-applicant to prevent the ice build-up; however, it is not helpful if applied after a snowstorm or if applied too early. There is a time frame that needs to be kept in mind. 

Safe Thaw Industrial Strength Ice Melter

It is unlike any other ice melt pellets in the market. It is a patented dual-effect compound made of a modified crystalline amide core infused with unique glycol admixture and traction agents. It does not leave a trace on the concrete or the surroundings and is safe for pets, humans, and all types of concrete, metal, and wood.

Even though it comes in a pellet form, it does not scatter everywhere, nor does it roll off because of its unique grip formula. It is an invisible shield that prevents the reformation of ice molecules and easily deices through the ice to the ground.

Green Gobbler Fast Acting De-icing Salt

These are ice melt pellets primarily comprising magnesium chloride. They come in different sizes ranging from 10lb jugs to 50lb bag pallets. Since the main ingredient is magnesium chloride, there is a high possibility of the product eroding your concrete, sidewalk, pathway, wood, and even the flora around.

These are slightly larger pellets that have a tendency to scatter unevenly and take somewhat longer to take effect on the icy surface.


Choose the correct form of ice melt pellets that will work quickly on your premises without damaging it at all. You need to ensure that your ice melt does not scatter too much, doesn’t take too long to de-ice, and serves your primary purpose of melting ice.
