Product Overview

The Original and the #1 Pet and Child Safe Ice melter for over 20 years. Guaranteed environmentally safe - 100% salt and chloride free, guaranteed non-corrosive to all metals and non-conductive will not short out circuits. Nontoxic for animals and humans, safe around children and pets. Will not harm waterways and sensitive wetlands. Received the Parent Tested Parent Approved Green Seal (PTPA). Works to a low temperature of -2°. Packaged in an easy to use 8 lb. shaker jug - no messy bags to split or break. Unused ice melt is good for years with an unlimited shelf life. (Coloration may change, however it does not change the effectiveness of melting snow and ice). Pellets come in a non-staining green color easy to see where you have spread. No other ice and snow melter works like Safe Paw - It is totally unique. Safe Paw is a patented dual-effect compound. The liquid component starts melting ice instantly while breaking its surface tension. This allows the crystal core to quickly penetrate and destabilize the ice 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 Endothermic reaction takes advantage of a solar effect. Use half the amount you would normally use of salt.

Answers

modified carbonyidiamide crystal, special glycols, non-ionic surfactants accelerants, proprietary traction agents, special inhibitors. I don't know how much this will help you if at all, but these were the ingredients listed on the container. However I can attest that I have used this for several years on concrete pavers, and it has melted the snow and ice effectively without damaging the pavers which can be brutalized by other products.

Probably, but you should always check with your tile installer to make sure. Safe Paw is the only 'de-icer' that does not contain salt - and salt is usually what causes surface degradation problems. Two articles for you to read to help you - one is the ingredient list for Safe Paws; the other is a more general article on de-icers. Safe Paws - https://www.onlynaturalpet.com/products/Safe-Paw-Ice-Melter/202000.aspx De-Icer problems - http://www.slipperyrockgazette.net/file/archive/0111/articles/35_1.html Congratulations on your new tile.

Is this safe on wood patio decks

Asked by Jaf January 30, 2017

Answers

Yes, it should be safe on wood decks. From the Safe Paws information website - "...Children, pets, surfaces and the environment can be adversely affected by the use of rock salt and salt-based ice melter products used by households in the winter. A recent national survey shows that 60 percent of American households use these products in the winter. And, an alarming 62 percent are unaware of the health dangers associated with the use of these products. Safe Paw is the only 100 percent salt-free ice melter on the market and is 100 percent safe for children, pets, surfaces and the environment. It is the smart and safe product to use with winter, and Safe Paw's pellets are green to make it easy for consumers to know the difference. Rock salt and other salt-based ice melters contain sodium chloride or potassium chloride which can heat up to 175 degrees when exposed to water, ice and low temperatures. Often these white pellets (crystals) sit on ice and snow surfaces for a long period before penetrating into the ice. Exposure or digesting these salt compounds can cause health problems for pets and children. Moreover, the salt and salt residue left over from these products cause permanent damage to pavers, asphalt, concrete, wood decks, floors and rugs and can harm the environment, including burn and kill lawns and plants and contaminate well and drinking water supplies...." https://www.onlynaturalpet.com/products/Safe-Paw-Ice-Melter/202000.aspx

I got this ice melt to make sure my dogs wouldn't get sick if they happened to lick it off their paws. I've discovered that this stuff works great, not the fastest, but if you put it down at night by the morning, the ice will be melted and gone.
