There are many different types of ice melt products available to treat government roadways, walkways, parking lots, doorways, and other surfaces. Snow & Ice Salt & Chemicals Unlimited, LLC offers premier ice melt directly to government facilities. Read more about the top products below to choose which is right for your ice melt solution.

Government Facility Ice Melt Products:

Calcium Chloride Ice Melt

Calcium Chloride ice melt products are available in either a pellet or flake form for use on properties such as government facilities. Peladow, calcium chloride in pellet form, is effective at melting ice due to its 90% concentration of calcium chloride. This strong concentration allows it to penetrate ice more efficiently than competing products. Additionally, Peladow is effective in temperatures of up to -25° F, as it absorbs moisture from the air and generates heat to melt ice faster. Dowflake is a calcium chloride product in pellet form. This ice melt product has a range of 83-87% concentration of calcium chloride, which is 10% higher than competing brands. This extra concentration allows for less frequent applications and stronger ice melting capabilities. Dowflake also absorbs moisture from the air and generates heat to melt ice faster in temperatures up to -25° F . Dowflake can be used to prepare liquid ice melt solutions as well.

Magnesium Chloride Ice Melt

Magnesium Chloride is another popular ice melt product used at government facilities that is available in pellet and flake form. Snow & Ice Salt & Chemicals Unlimited, LLC carries Magnesium Chloride Pellets, which are the optimal solution for protecting the surrounding environment. With a lower chloride content, this product is safe for vegetation, people, and plants, reducing the negative effects typically associated with chlorides. Magnesium chloride pellets work by absorbing moisture from the air to melt the ice, and is effective in temperatures up to -13° F. Magnesium chloride flakes also have a lower impact on the environment and are a great ice melt solution. Typically this product is less expensive and used to spread in front of government property doorways and walkways, as the pellets stay in place well. Magnesium chloride flakes can also be mixed into a brine solution and stay effective up to -13° F.

Brine Solutions and Ice Melt Blends for Government Facilities

An additional category of solutions for government facilities are brine solutions and ice melt blends. Brine solutions are utilized as anti-icing products, meaning they are applied before a storm to combat ice before it builds up. Thus, you can take proactive action with brine solutions. Blends are products that are a mixture of typically calcium chloride and magnesium chloride at various concentrations. These blends effectively combine both elements of each chloride to produce a premium ice melt solution. These products are effective at low temperatures and help keep roadways, sidewalks, and street surfaces safe.
