PELADOW is a premium ice melter
PELADOW™ is a purified inorganic salt produced by removing water from a naturally occurring brine solution. Unlike other processes used to produce calcium chloride, the brine process does not involve reactions with chemicals such as hydrochloric acid or ammonia. The National Organic Standards Board noted this distinction when it classified the brine process as “non-synthetic.”
PELADOW™ meets or exceeds ASTM D98 and AASHTO M144 requirements for calcium chloride purity. ASTM classification for PELADOW™ is Type S, Grade 2, Class B.
Solid calcium chloride is both hygroscopic and deliquescent. This means that the product can absorb moisture from the air, even to the point of converting to liquid brine. For this reason, solid calcium chloride should be protected from excessive exposure to moisture to maintain product quality while in storage. Store in a dry area. Opened packages should be tightly resealed after each use.
Calcium Chloride attracts moisture from the atmosphere. As the pellet/flake turn into solutions, they give off heat to melt even more ice and snow.
