Snow fighting professionals that are looking for full disclosure of ingredients, need look no further. TruMelt™ is true to its name. We disclose the truth about ingredients and true effectiveness. TruMelt™ 3% is the economic choice for commercial and residential applications.

Due to the inclusion of 3% magnesium pellets, it melts effectively down to 0°F. TruMelt™ 3% is screened to optimal crystal size for maximum traction and accurate spreading. Small dusty fines and large crystals above ¼ inch in diameter are removed. TruMelt™ is more free flowing than any ice melter on the market and provides a clump-free product for ease of application. TruMelt™ 3% is very lightly tinted with a non-staining organic (biodegradable) green colorant to enhance accuracy and visibility. It is non-staining and safe for sidewalks and floors.

TruMelt™ 3% is safer on concrete surfaces than just pure salt. With 3% magnesium pellets, the melting point is about 15 degree lower than pure salt and reduces freeze/thaw cycles above 0°F. However, for greater protection of concrete surface, use TruMelt™ 12% or TruMelt™ 20%. In addition, TruMelt™ 3% is safer for pets and turf than calcium based products. If applied at recommended rates, it will not burn vegetation or pet paws.
