Snow and Ice

Peladow 50PELADOW Ice Penetration (at 20 degrees F), within the first 20 minutes:

  • 2X deeper than NaCl
  • 2X deeper than MgCl2
  • 3X deeper than Urea
  • 3X deeper than KCl
  • 14X deeper than CMA

PELADOW Melting Speed (at 20 degrees F) within the first 20 mins:

  • 2X more than NaCl
  • 3X more  than MgCl2
  • 3X more  than Urea
  • 7X more  than KCl
  • 13X more  than CMA


Peladow Pellets

  • Melts to -25° F
  • Is the fastest, most effective ice melt available
  • Premium-priced, similar to magnesium chloride, but pound-for-pound, melts twice as much ice
  • Is hygroscopic, drawing moisture from the air,  and exothermic,  creating heat to accelerate the melting process
  • Vegetation, corrosion and concrete performance compares favorably to competing ice-melt materials, including magnesium and potassium chloride.



PELADOWTM Premier Ice-Melt – The Best on Ice

No other ice-melt product works on snow and ice better than PELADOW™ Calcium Chloride Pellets.  Comparative performance tests and scientific research prove that it’s the premier choice for ice melt. With its fast melting action and cold-temperature performance, PELADOW™ calcium chloride is easily distinguished from other ice melters because it:

  • Contains more than 90 percent calcium chloride, the most effective material for melting ice and snow.
  • Melts ice 2 to 13 times more than other ice-melt materials.
  • Absorbs moisture and generates heat to speed melting.
  • Penetrates through ice 2 to 14 times deeper than competing materials.
  • Performs in a wider range of winter temperatures, even extreme cold.
  • Provides peace of mind by making steps, walks, driveways and parking lots safer.
  • Ensures the same vegetation, corrosion and concrete performance as other ice-melt formulations, including magnesium chloride, potassium chloride and rock salt.

PELADOW™ calcium chloride outperforms other ice formulations in all winter conditions. For example, in the first 20 minutes at 20°F, PELADOW™ pellets melt:

  • 2X more than NaCl
  • 3X more than MgCl2
  • 3X more  than Urea
  • 7X more  than KCl
  • 13X more  than CMA

While competing products stop working at 0°F, PELADOW™ pellets keep working even when the temperature plummets to -25°F, the lowest effective temperature of any ice-melt product.
