By switching to you can get the job done
in less time, with less cost and less waste.
Penetrate ice, reach the surface, clear the slush and get on with your day. PELADOW® melts more ice in 20 minutes than magnesium chloride can in 60.*
Stretch your ice melt budget by using PELADOW® at the proper application rate. In 30 minutes, melt 1,000 sq. ft of ice with only 28 lbs. of PELADOW® compared to 50 lbs. of magnesium chloride.*
Responsible ice melting starts with you. PELADOW® introduces up to 15% less chlorides into the environment compared to magnesium chloride.+
*Based on comparative study of melting ice at 20⁰ F.
+Based on recommended application rate at 20⁰ F and 30 minutes.
Here’s how much you could save when you Melt Responsibly™ using PELADOW® instead of magnesium chloride:

1Application rate for PELADOW based on application of 4 oz/yd2, Oxy's recommended application rate at 20°F. Magnesium chloride application rate based on melting an equivalent amount of ice as PELADOW after 30 minutes at 20°F.
2Equivalent trucks, pallets, or bags of PELADOW Premier per season is calculated based on treating an equal square footage, rounded up to the next whole truck, pallet, or bag.
3Due to rounding up to a full truck, pallet, or bag, the square footage covered by PELADOW Premier as calculated by the pounds of product purchased will be slightly greater than the square footage covered by magnesium.
