This Winter, Choose The Best Ice Melt For Your Facility

Ice Melt In Wholesale

When it comes to keeping people safe from dangerous ice formation, your commercial property’s needs are different from those of the neighboring sites. Choose an ice melt that will keep you away from winter hazards and give you enough time to plan your business rather than dealing with slippery and snowy entrances.

Here are a few things you must keep in mind before buying ice melt salt in wholesale

Form Of The Ice Melt

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. 

Another form of ice melt available in the market is the pallet. The biggest disadvantage of using a pallet form is that they get scattered and get wasted. To combat this issue, many wholesale ice melt companies sell colored pallets. However, many people complain that colored pallets (except a few brands) leave a stain on the surface.

What Are Its Ingredients-

1. Mixed chlorides 

Large establishments prefer a mixture of chlorides such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium because they melt ice faster and work at freezing temperatures. However, they are chlorides at the end of the day. They are harmful to the flora as well as the concrete. These chlorides are abrasive, and when used excessively, will end up damaging your premises to a great extent. 

2. Ice melt with natural ingredients

The Safe Thaw Industrial Strength Ice Melter from Safe Paw will keep your employees, visitors, and guests safe throughout the winter season.

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. Even though it comes in a pellet form, it does not scatter everywhere, nor does it roll off because of its unique grip formula.

Packaging Of Your Ice Melt 

While purchasing your ice melt salt in wholesale, the packaging is also important.

If you have any leftover product after you’ve used it, you should make sure that it is stored away from sunlight and moisture. Many varieties of ice melt absorb moisture from the air if left exposed. The ice melt can also become brittle as a result of exposure to air and sunlight. Therefore packaging matters a lot.

Exothermic Or Endothermic Ice Melt

Most of the ice melt containing chemicals and chlorides produces an exothermic reaction that can damage the machinery by causing unnecessary heat around them. Ice melt containing urea and other natural ingredients in their blend works on endothermic reactions. They absorb the heat from the sun and melt ice. They don’t harm your machinery and do not cause short circuits.


When buying ice melt salt in wholesale make sure to consider all the points mentioned above. It is always best to evaluate the choices in the market before making any decision. After all, you need a safe product for you, your pets, your plants, and your premises.
