Ice Melt With PTA (Proprietary Traction Agent) In Maryland
The Old Farmer’s Almanac has predicted that winters in Maryland will be warmer than normal, with precipitation above normal in the north and below normal in the south. The coldest periods will be in mid-and late December and throughout January. Snowfall will be below normal, with the snowiest period in early March. But the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that snow lovers are going to rejoice! Most Marylanders didn’t see much snow last winter, but this year will more than makeup for it. It’s predicted to be seasonably cold, wet, and white.
It means that we are going to get a lot of snow till March-end.
Ice Melt Safe For Concrete
How is it going so far? Avoiding slip and fall accidents is one of the biggest winter woes we all want to avoid at any cost. Therefore we use ice melt. Let’s analyze different ice melt products to find the best product that gives us maximum protection against slip-fall accidents this winter.
1. Green Gobbler Rock Salt-based Ice Melt –
The main ingredient of Green Gobbler salt is rock salt. Rock salt is one of the most popular choices in the town for two reasons. It is the least expensive material and easily available. But not everyone knows that it loses its effectiveness as the temperature starts dipping down 20 degrees. Moreover, it damages soil, plants, and metals. If you’re looking for an ice melt that is safe for concrete, you must know that it is corrosive.
2. Safe Paw –
Safe Paw is a patented dual-effect compound. The liquid component starts melting the snow instantly while breaking its surface tension. This allows the crystal core to quickly penetrate and destabilize the snow and speed up the melting process. All this while Safe Paw proprietary traction agent provides slip protection. Safe Paw attracts heat to make it even more effective. The endothermic reaction takes advantage of a solar effect.
Safe paw is the only ice melt that is non-corrosive and comes with a proprietary traction agent. It provides extra protection against slip and fall accidents.
In reality, it is economical also, since you require Safe Paw half the amount you would normally use of salt. Secondly, you don’t need to buy a traction agent separately. It’s a two-in-one product.
Its advantages don’t end here. It can melt at temperatures as low as -2 degrees and prevents the snow from sticking to the surfaces for up to three days.
3. Chemical Based Ice Melts –
The rest of the ice melt in the market use harmful chemicals like calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and CMA. For example, Paw Thaw has propylene glycol in its blend, which is harmful to the pets if swallowed and may require immediate medical attention. Morton Safe T Pet is a urea-based ice melt, and it is not environmentally safe. Snow Joe contains calcium chloride and is extremely harmful to pets.
In short, all chemical-based ice melt are harmful to your pets and damages the concrete, plants, and environment.
Now I recommend it to all my pet-owner friends.
Stay safe on slippery surfaces with a product that’s 100% natural and safe for pets, people, and your property. Use Traction Magic on sidewalks, steps, or as instant traction for your car. Made in the USA.
Imagine an ice melt you can put down and never worry about. It won’t harm animals or children, and it won’t damage your property. That’s Safe Thaw. Unlike anything else on the market, Safe Thaw can change how winter affects our planet.
