3 Ways Safe Paw Protects Your Concrete

Safe Paw - Concrete Safe Ice Melt

When ice melts, it causes a chemical process that produces heat, melting the ice and snow. It also lowers the water’s refreezing temperature, preventing the freeze-thaw cycle. When ice melts and thaws, it seeps into the pores of your concrete. The refreezing and expansion of concrete can result in scaling, spalling, popouts, and even fissures. In the spring, this damage will necessitate pricey repairs. Therefore, it becomes an utmost necessity to get a concrete safe ice melter.

Using concrete safe ice melter is the greatest way to ensure that your concrete does not develop cracks or flakes. You can use a deicer that is salt-free and chloride-free.

3 Ways Safe Paw Protects Your Concrete

1. Gentle on Concrete

They are gentle on the concrete because they do not include corrosives or salts. They are as effective when used at low temperatures. 

Safe Paw is a paw safe salt that is non-toxic and chemical-free ice melt. Chloride is present in most ice melting salts in one form or another. These hazardous substances burn the paws of our four-legged friends causing irritation and itching. They may erode driveways and pathways as well. Thankfully, we have safe, non-toxic, and chemical-free Safe Paw ice melt to keep your winters clean and safe.

2. Teflon Effect

Another advantage of salt-free deicers is that they have a Teflon effect that prevents ice from forming. After your floor has been cleared of snow, this effect forms an undetectable layer on the deiced surface, making it easier to shovel.

Your ideal ice melter should be able to serve as a pre-treatment as well. Few ice melts can keep ice from clinging to surfaces for up to three days after they have been used. Safe Paw works for three days to prevent the sticking of ice with the surface. Thus, shoveling becomes an easy task.

3. Freeze-Thaw Cycle 

Safe Paw will maintain melted ice in a liquid state for a longer period to preserve your concrete and extend its lifespan. It means that ice melt will not refreeze as easily or as frequently, stopping the freeze-thaw cycle from occurring.

How Does Safe Paw Work?

This blend contains two ice-fighting ingredients, each with a unique purpose. The patented outer core liquefies immediately when contacting the ice. It begins to melt and break up the slippery ice surface. This allows the crystalline amide core to penetrate deep into the ice to complete the melting process and give you long-lasting protection.

Safe Paw’s proprietary formula also contains glycol, widely used to thaw ice and prevent further freezing. Therefore, it not only melts existing ice, Safe Paw coats the surface to inhibit ice from forming the next time bad weather strikes. If you’re looking for a paw safe salt your search ends here.

Safe Paw is effective at a lower temperature, -2F, than magnesium chloride (+15F) and some other salt-based products (+20F to +24F). Plus, unlike rock salt, it is completely safe and would not harm the environment.
