Melting Point Comparison Of Safe Paw Vs. Other Products

What Temperature Does Snow Melt

Choosing the correct one with various deicers and ice melter products that help build traction on ice. It is because each has a unique property, especially its melting points and composition. To give you a clear overview, we have highlighted the melting point comparison between Safe Paw and other products in the market

Let us take you through the top products in the market and help break down their melting point. 

Green Gobbler 

One of the most popular ice melter products in the market, calcium chloride, is present in a few prominent brands. It has an approx. melting point of up to -20o F. However, it takes a while to melt the ice, and it turns into slush or brine upon melting. It is less environment-friendly and exothermic, contains chloride, and is slightly corrosive. It might harm your metal and steel with prolonged exposure and does not provide excellent traction on ice. In addition, it is not pet-safe or child-safe. 

Gaia Enterprises Inc. delivers 100% pet-safe and environmentally friendly winter products. Safe Paw, our flagship product, is the #1 selling pet-safe ice melt that does not harm pets, safe if ingested, and safe on all types of concrete.

Other calcium chloride brands include Pellets of Fire, Xynyth Artic Orange Ice melter, MELT calcium chloride pellets, etc., with similar melting points.

Roadrunner Ice melt 

Another famous ice melter brand, Magnesium Chloride, is the primary component in Roadrunner Ice melt brand (blended with calcium chloride) and has a melting pointing up to -12 o F approximately. Most often, all these chlorides are available in one blend form or the other. Unfortunately, magnesium chloride is not environment-safe and may harm your concrete and metal. It is not pet or child-safe either. 

Other magnesium chloride products include MAG Ice melting pellets and flakes, Bare Ground liquid and pellet ice melt, etc.,

Safe Paw

It is excellent for providing traction on snow and is available in an 8 lb jar to the Safe Paw ice melter 35 lbs pail. It is 100% safe for the environment, pets, and children. It provides excellent traction on snow on any premises, residential or commercial. It works excellently well even in sub-zero temperatures up to -25o F.

Blue Heat Ice Melt 

Blue Heat Ice Melt is another quick ice melt product, a blend of calcium chloride and magnesium chloride with a blue tint. It has a melting point of appro. -20 o F approximately and is less harmful to your vegetation, pets, and concrete. However, it does leave a slight residue after it dries, giving your surrounding a slightly shabby look. It is not the best traction on ice substitute either. 


Sodium acetate has a melting point up to 5oF; sodium chloride has a melting point up to 20- 22F. In contrast, potassium chloride has a melting point up to 12 o F. 

While there are other blends, mixtures, and sodium chloride ice melters in the market, Safe Paw ice melter 35 lbs pail is economical, environment-friendly, and salt-free. With a dual-patented formula comprising carbonyl diamide and liquid glycols, your surface remains ice-free for up to 72 hours after applying or spreading Safe Paw. 

If you are looking for 100% traction on ice, Safe Paw is your safest bet.
