Ice Melt 101: What you need to know about ice melt
When used correctly, ice melt is a powerful tool that can help keep ice from forming and reduce the risk of slips and falls.
There are two ways to melt ice/snow turning it into a brine (liquid solution), ultimately breaking the bond between the ice/snow and the surface area:
- Endothermic – Lowers the Freezing Point of the Surface Area (e.g. Rock Salt)
- Exothermic – Reacts with the Moisture in the Ice/Snow to Create Heat(e.g. Calcium Chloride)
