IceMelz eco® consists of active granular de-icing material that is free of any chloride or salt components.  As a result, IceMelz eco® is a sustainable solution for combatting slipperiness caused by snow and/or ice. In addition to being environmentally friendly, it is non-corrosive to metals, non-damaging to vegetation, and is pet-safe. IceMelz eco® is cost competitive as it maintains its key characteristics at extreme low temperature and dissolves slowly, remaining active five times longer than traditional road salts.
