My Honest Feedback On Safe Thaw

Safe Thaw - Natural Ice Melt In Wholesale

Approximately one million Americans are injured every year, and nearly 600,000 are hospitalized every year due to falls on ice. Slippery sidewalks cause people to lose their balance, thus, resulting in a painful falls. These slip and fall accidents are not just painful but can be expensive for business owners. Savvy business owners are no longer spreading ice melt that they know has a high potential for causing damage to their expensive investment or worse, poisoning people and pets. Therefore, I was looking for a good ice melt to use around my facility. Last winter, I thought I would plan for the upcoming snowstorm and got myself an ice melt solution from the nearest store without researching much about the wholesale ice melt companies. I spread the colorful pellets before the storm and immediately after the snowstorm. But nothing happened. The snow accumulated did not come down by an inch, even after using half of the ice melt. Then, a few of my colleagues recommended Safe Thaw. Now it has been a year using Safe Thaw, and here is the honest feedback I want to share.

Safe Thaw - Ice And Snow Management Solution

Impact On My Concrete

Any chloride-containing substance, such as sodium chloride, potassium chloride, or calcium chloride, is never safe for concrete, especially new concrete. These slightly acidic compounds degrade the paste that holds concrete together by widening the pore size and allowing water to pass through. When more water enters into the pores of your concrete, the freeze-thaw cycle becomes more dangerous. Most of the wholesale ice melt companies have these chemicals in their blend. 

Safe Thaw, on the other hand, has a modified crystalline amide core that is combined with a unique glycol admixture and traction ingredients. This patented dual-effect compound is non-conductive and non-corrosive. On coming in contact with snow, the crystals leach out a deicing liquid that speeds up the melting process. It forms a protective layer on your concrete. 

Safe Thaw does not contain any form of salt, including no rock salt. My concrete is still the same as it was a year ago.

For Pets In And Around My Facility

Any form of salt (calcium chloride, sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, fill-in-the-blank chloride) is hazardous to your pets and property. Unlike most ice melters that claim to be safe for pets and safe for concrete, brick, etc, Safe Thaw is actually safe for pets. 

Impact On The Plants And Environment

Through my research, I became aware of the other harms which salt-based ice melt causes to us and the environment. Rock salt can kill your garden plants and can also pollute the water bodies. 

As a responsible citizen and savvy business owner, I made a responsible decision by choosing a natural ice melt.


Contrary to the claims on the packaging of most rock salts, including those ice melt salt in wholesale, marketed as pet safe, rock salt is not safe for pets and not safe for concrete. As a responsible business owner, you can maintain easy access to driveways and walkways at all times by using a good natural ice melt.
