At Snow & Ice Salt, we pride ourselves on offering an array of products so that our Snow Removal Company managers can find exactly what they’re looking for. But tools are only as effective as the way you use them — so to make sure that you’re getting the most bang for your buck, here are some tips to keep in mind when you use Hot Melt Deicer.
First, what is Hot Melt?
Hot Melt deicer is a premium blend of 80% sodium chloride and 20% magnesium chloride. This combination creates a superior ice melting product that works quicker and at lower temperatures then other ice melts. It is generally used for sidewalk ice management where the most meticulous clean surface needs to be maintained.
Hot Melt Deicer Facts & Usage Tips
It can handle the cold.
The temperature range of any deicer depends on the chemicals that make it up. Hot Melt is composed of 80% Sodium Chloride and 20% Magnesium Chloride. According to this ice melt guide, Magnesium Chloride is effective well below 0 degrees. This makes it a perfect choice for especially harsh conditions, including those brutally cold East Coast winters.
Take advantage of its design.
Hot Melt is specially designed for sidewalk maintenance. That means the blend is intended to be most effective on concrete, so you’ll want to use other products on asphalt, flagstone, or brick to avoid damage. For companies that need to clear considerable areas of sidewalk, however, there’s nothing better.
A little goes a long way.
One of Hot Melt’s main perks is that it provides unusually long residual action. Apply it to sidewalks before snow arrives or just after it’s been cleared. Hot Melt will begin melting snow immediately, and continue working long after other deicers quit.
With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to use this powerful product to its full potential. Keep an eye on our blog for other feature articles on our products.
