How Safe Paw Ice Melt Works

0 comments

How Safe Paw Works

• Safe Paw is made of a modified crystalline amide center, interspersed with glycol admixture and also contains traction agents.

• The liquid component begins melting ice immediately while breaking surface tension.

• The crystal-core effectively penetrates and destabilizes ice, thus speeding up the melting process.

• Safe Paw leaves an invisible layer of protection which helps prevent ice from sticking to surfaces for up to three days.

Tips for Using Safe Paw Products

• Store Safe Paw indoors and at room temperature to ensure maximum performance.

• Spread Safe Paw before winter precipitation.

• Sometimes ice melters require assistance on black ice. With a shovel roughen or scratch black ice before you apply Safe Paw. This causes the surface tension to be broken, and Safe Paw will begin working immediately.

• Safe Paw can be used as a traction agent if your car gets stuck in snow or ice. Just clear the ruts and sprinkle Safe Paw around the tires to increase traction.

• You don’t need to use as much as other ice melter products. Safe Paw is extremely effective. Applying excessive amounts could lead to the browning of grass or temporarily color surfaces. If this does occur, simply reduce the amount of product you are using and follow these steps:

◦ If grass becomes brown, water the affected area and hold off on fertilizing.

◦ The color should return by the end of spring.

◦ Surface coloring from overuse is temporary and will fade over time when exposed to water and sunlight.

◦ To speed up the fading process use OxyClean or a similar product.

• Safe Paw can be safely used anywhere you are worried about ice.
