Premier Snow and Ice Melter

When professional grade ice melting materials are required, no material is as effective as Peladow™ calcium chloride pellets.  In the snowy cities of Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, and New York, icy sidewalks and parking lots require a high performance deicer that can burn through hard pack snow and ice.  Peladow™ brand calcium chloride pellets are the de facto standard of pellet deicers in North America, and are available in truckload shipments directly from our locations in Ludington, MI, Mansfield, MA, and New Brunswick, NJ.

Calcium chloride pellets, such as Peladow™, are highly effective at cold temperatures down to -25F.  Peladow™ calcium chloride pellets are the only deicer that will continue to melt ice dams and hard pack snow in extremely cold environments.  For cities like Baltimore, Washington, Richmond, and Philadelphia that get hit hard by record snow falls, Peladow™ continues to be the premier choice for high performance snow-fighting. 

No other ice-melt product works on snow and ice better than Peladow™ Calcium Chloride Pellets.

This has been proven by:

  • Comparative performance tests
  • Scientific research

Distinguished from Other Ice Melters

Peladow Ingredients

While most ice melters are composed of one or more, or a blend, of active ingredients, there are performance differences among the following:

  • Calcium Chloride (Cacl2)
  • Sodium Chloride (NaCl)
  • Potassium Chloride (KCl)
  • Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2)
  • Urea

Peladow contains 90% calcium chloride, so you can melt ice faster and across a wider temperature range.

Peladow melts ice faster than the competition

In the first 20 minutes at 20’F (-7’C) Peladow melts approximately:

  • 2X more ice than rock salt
  • 3X more ice than urea
  • 7X more ice than potassium chloride

The Science of Snow and Ice Control

High performance is scientifically engineered into every Peladow pellet by way of it’s:

  • Ability to attract moisture from its surroundings
  • Heat-generating reaction (please request free sample for demonstration)
  • Round shape

Each of these characteristics makes Peladow pellets perform better.


PELADOW™ Calcium Chloride Pellets are the premier snow and ice melter, ideal for clearing sidewalks, driveways and parking lots. It melts ice up to 3 times faster than competing materials, and outperforms other products across a wide range of temperatures. The round shape of PELADOW™ helps it penetrate ice and break the bond with the pavement more quickly than flat or crystal-shaped ice melters, allowing easy removal of snow and ice.
