The Only Ice Melt That Doesn’T Ruin Concrete


ice melt that doesn't ruin concrete

If you live in a climate where ice and snow are common, you’ve probably heard about the dangers of using traditional ice melt. You may have also heard about “chemicals” and how they can ruin concrete. But what does that mean? In this post, we’ll answer your questions about chlorine-free ice melt and why it’s the only ice melt that doesn’t ruin concrete.

Safe Thaw - Best Ice Melt For Asphalt

Safe Thaw

Safe Thaw was created as the ice management solution for tough winter environments. Ideal in commercial and industrial properties, shops, government agencies, bridges, and construction.

Chloride-based ice melts

Chloride-based compositions are widely used as an ice melt due to their lower price. However, they are completely unsafe for the vegetation. In addition, they can damage the concrete due to freeze-induced expansion pressure built by multiple freeze/thaw cycles. Also, it is harmful to pets and kids.

You may be surprised to learn that regular ice melt is toxic to pets. When dogs and cats ingest the chemicals in regular ice melts, they can experience vomiting, diarrhea, and other serious health issues. Dogs are particularly susceptible to the toxicity of regular ice melts because they tend to lick up any spills that fall onto concrete. This is why it’s so important not just for your own safety but also for that of your pet to choose a chlorine-free ice melt that doesn’t ruin concrete and is safe for pets!

Chloride-based ice melt salt is not just harmful to plants and animals, but also to concrete. It is not at all a safe melt ice melter in any aspect. The chlorine in chloride-based ice melts corrodes the concrete in your driveway or sidewalk, causing it to crack and crumble over time.
