Full Ingredient Disclosure

TruMelt™ 3% is a premium blend of 97% oven-dried, screened sodium chloride and 3% magnesium pellets. Snow-fighting professionals who are looking for full disclosure of ingredients need look no further. TruMelt™ is true to its name. We disclose the truth about the ingredients and real-world effectiveness of our quality ice melt. TruMelt™ 3% is the economical choice for commercial and residential applications. Due to the inclusion of 3% magnesium pellets, it melts effectively down to 0°F.

Clean & Free-Flowing

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. Because it is clump-free, TruMelt™ is easy and efficient to apply. It is the most free-flowing ice melt on the market. 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.

Concrete Safety

TruMelt™ 3% is safer on concrete surfaces than just pure salt. With 3% magnesium pellets, the melting point is about 15 degrees lower than pure salt, reducing 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.
