4 Benefits of Ice Break as a Snow Removal and Ice Melting Product

Ice melting products aren’t always the most reliable, especially grit based products that can do a slow acting job but leave behind a messy residue. When you need something fast acting and reliable Ice Break is guaranteed to do the job and has been scientifically developed over many years to deliver consistently on the toughest patches of compacted ice and snow.

So what are the 4 reasons ice breaker is the best ice melting product you can purchase whilst putting together your winter supplies?

1.       It’s like Magic – Fast Acting Ice Melt

Let’s put this in comparison with the traditional ice prevention and removal products, which are salt based. Ice break has been scientifically tested and works at 8 times the speed of rock salt. During production, all of the liquid has been removed from a natural accruing liquid chemical source and what’s left behind is a pure, dry cake. This has been formed into light and small pellets which when dropped onto ice begin to react instantly. The pellets hurtle up to a high temperature and the ice melting process begins much quicker than with rock salt.

2.        Lasts for up to 48 Hours

Not only does it start to work instantly as an ice melting product, Ice Break lasts for longer than rock salt. An invisible layer is left behind once the pellets have melted the ice and this prevents liquid from forming into ice and bonding with the ground below. Salt based products only last for up to five hours in most scenarios and that is why you often see gritters out over consecutive days when cold weather hits. They are used to plough away the snow whilst dropping grit to remove the night’s ice.  Ice Break is a great proactive, preventative measure rather than the reactionary grit based products we are used to.

3.       Simple to Apply

The pellets mentioned earlier are easy to spread on an icy surface or as a preventative measure when the cold weather warning has arrived. You don’t need any special snow or ice removing equipment to lay them down and due to the heat of the pellets when they come into contact with ice, they cover a wider area than rock salt too. The Ice Break pellets allows for even distribution and do not leave behind a messy residue which is an all too familiar problem with grit based products.

4.       Non-Toxic

One of the misconceptions of certain ice melting products is that they can be toxic to humans and damage the surfaces they are being used to treat. This is not the case at all with Ice Break. It is non-corrosive and is safe to use on any surface, including vegetation, without worrying about leaving damage behind once the ice and snow has been removed.
